As of March 2019, the Boeing 737 MAX has been involved in two fatal accidents resulting in a great outcry over the safety of the planes and causing authorities to ground the 737 MAX across the globe. The grounding of the 737 MAX has wiped out more than 30,000 Southwest Airline flights alone and resulted in the loss of more than $100,000,000 in lost wages for pilots who have been unable to fly.
The lawsuit brought by the pilots alleges Boeing “abandoned sound design and engineering practices, withheld critical safety information from regulators, and deliberately mislead its customers, pilots and the public about the true scope of design changes to the 737 MAX.” The amount of lost wages pilots have suffered is only likely to grow as the 737 MAX is not expected to return to service until sometime in 2020.
