We tested with and without AirMax and found out not much differences
except in certain case (colocation of close antennas) AirMax
wasn't working at all (horrible bandwidth performance, slow to access
web admin). In the end we've been running AirOS without AirMax for a
while now both PtP and PtM

Do you have detailed performance results with and without AirMax ?
