Boeing Settlement Hinges On How Long Doomed 737 Max Passengers Knew They Were Going To Die

Boeing and its insurers are likely to pay an amount of money to the families of those who died in the 737 Max crashes that is directly proportional to one grim measure: how long the victims knew they were plunging to their deaths. Additionally, as part of a legal fight to determine Boeing's financial liability after the 737 Max crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia, passenger's families could be paid compensation based on grief, sorrow, loss of companionship and lost future paychecks.

According to an estimate from Bloomberg, the claims could total as much is $1 billion, and some legal experts believe the final amount could be even more, if evidence shows that Boeing knew about flaws in their planes prior to the tragedies taking place. This idea has already prompted investor lawsuits against the company, claiming it hid safety risks.

Brian Alexander, a New York aviation lawyer for victims of the Ethiopian Airlines jet said: "The bottom line is Boeing’s exposure is much more substantial than in any other case that I’ve been a part of in my quarter-century of representing families. You get into ‘What did you know and when did you know it'."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boeing used to be a company with a stellar reputation for safety; that there was knowledge on the part of the execs, that there were real, possibly fatal flaws in the design these 737s, is more than a little scary.

Whoever knew about this, and sat on it, should be looking at real jail time, and NOT, thank you very much, in a Club Fed.
