Boeing and Southwest Airlines conspired to hide flaws in the 737 Max jet, lawsuit alleges
A new lawsuit alleges that Boeing and Southwest Airlines endangered public safety by colluding to hide a design flaw in the 737 Max jet.
“This action seeks to hold Southwest and Boeing responsible for their reckless, greedy conspiracy to launch the defective 737 Max 8 and to keep it flying,” says the lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
The suit was filed on behalf of nearly a dozen passengers who traveled on a 737 Max between Aug. 29, 2017 and March 13, 2019, the date the planes were grounded in the wake of fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed 346 people.
