Polish flag air carrier sues Boeing over 737 Max groundings

LOT, Poland’s national airline, has sued the US aircraft maker Boeing in a court in Seattle, demanding damages of at least PLN 1 billion (USD 250 million) due to the grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft which LOT had purchased.

Design faults in the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), a flight stabilising program, caused two crashes in which 346 people died, which led to a two-year-long worldwide grounding of the new planes.

The news concerning the lawsuit was confirmed by PAP through LOT spokesman Krzysztof Moczulski.

Earlier on Tuesday, a source told PAP the legal case had been preceded by months of negotiations with Boeing, which had not satisfied the Polish airline.
