Monday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Monday’s business headlines.

American Airlines

American Airlines is planning to return the Boeing 737Max to service for passenger flights by the end of the year.

However, the return-to-service dates are “highly dependent” on recertification from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The max has been grounded worldwide since March 2019 following two crashes that killed 364 people.

School closures

School closures will cost students thousands in future earnings.

A new report from the Penn Wharton Budget Model says by the beginning of October those closures have cost students between $43,000 and $57,000 in their future earnings, depending on their grade.

Younger students, the report says, lose more than their older classmates.

Package deliveries

If you are doing a lot of online shopping for the holidays, you should start early.

Delivery companies and analysts expect delays this year due to unprecedented demand.

Carriers are pushing retailers to spread out sales to lessen the demand.

Gas prices

The national average prices for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.17, down a penny from the previous week. Drivers were paying an average of $2.65 a gallon a year ago at this time.

Analysts say gas prices are decreasing nationally as demand slows due to fewer road trips being taken in the fall.

Triple A says the current average in central Indiana just over $2 a gallon.
