FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - American Airlines says it's talking to Boeing about compensation for grounded planes and will share some of the proceeds with airline employees. American had 24 Boeing 737 Max jets when the planes were grounded in March after two deadly crashes. The airline has canceled thousands of flights due to the missing planes. Boeing is negotiating with other airlines over compensation. It has estimated the cost at $5.6 billion. Meanwhile, it's not clear when the Max will fly again. Boeing is still working on software and computer changes that would need approval from federal safety regulators.
