In March 2019, officials grounded the plane in the U.S. after it was involved in two deadly crashes. One crash happened in Africa and the other in Asia. The two crashes killed a combined 346 people.

American Airlines wanted to prove it is safe for passengers by flying from the airline's base in Dallas, Texas, to Tulsa, Oklahoma on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020.
