The US aerospace gigantic lost billions of dollars in its market value. After a few days of the incident of Ethiopia crash, almost all the major countries have announced that they were barring the aircraft from flying in their region. Even as the company attempts to reestablish confidence in its 737 Max. It is fronting a criminal probe as well as investigations from lawmakers over if it has got too comfy relationship with its regulators in the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration.
The suit remained filed in support of the estate of traveler Jackson Musoni of Rwanda. The complaint trails previous suits counter to the company over the crash occurred in October. A spokeswoman of Boeing declined to give any comment on Thursday’s objection in federal court in Chicago.
“The subject accident occurred because, among other things, Boeing defectively designed a new flight control system for the Boeing 737 MAX 8. That automatically and erroneously pushes the aircraft’s nose down. Because Boeing failed to warn of the defect,” according to the recorded complaint.
Boeing Next Plan
