Boeing agrees to settle with Ethiopia 737 Max crash victims

NEW YORK (AP) — Boeing has reached a legal agreement with the victims’ families from the March 2019 crash in Ethiopia that involved its 737-Max aircraft, which claimed 157 lives. In the agreement, Boeing admitted that its software was to blame for the plane′s loss of control and destruction, and that the 737-Max was in an “unsafe condition” to fly. Boeing’s 737-Max were recertified to start flying earlier this year. The settlement does not involve monetary compensation to the families as of Wednesday, according to court records, but it does allow victims’ families to pursue individual claims in U.S. courts.
