New U.S. Lawsuit Alleges Boeing Ignored Software Flaws in 737 MAX

HeadlineApr 09, 2019

Another lawsuit against Boeing has been filed in the U.S. over last month’s fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash, which killed all 157 people on board. The family of 29-year-old Mucaad Hussein Abdalla from Minnesota says Boeing neglected known safety issues in the design of its flight control system on the 737 MAX 8 aircraft and that it did not properly train pilots on the software. Last week, the family of 24-year-old Samya Stumo sued Boeing and filed a claim against the Federal Aviation Administration. Boeing’s CEO admitted wrongdoing and apologized for the crash for the first time last week.
