Wrongful death lawsuit filed against Boeing on behalf of St. Cloud man

Boeing CEO points to risk and responsibility in fresh statement

On March 12, Ethiopian police officers walk past the debris of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash, near the town of Bishoftu, near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

American Airlines is extending by over a month its cancellations of about 90 daily flights as the troubled 737 Max plane remains grounded by regulators.

Boeing is working to develop a software fix that will get the 371 grounded 737 Max jets back in the air.

"We miss him dearly".

Abdalla, 31, had recently married. American Airlines (AAL) and United Airlines (UAL) have placed orders for 100 jets each. Lower output won't change profit and loss because without deliveries, Boeing books neither. "Our goal with this lawsuit is to obtain answers for our grieving clients and hold those accountable for creating this tragedy".

"The CEO's statement strengthens claims by the victims' families for viable compensation from the plane maker", Kailimang said, since the apology means that Boeing implicitly accepts blame.

The Max came under scrutiny following two crashes in the span of about five months involving Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines.

The airline, which owns 24 planes in its fleet, in a news release said it has extended cancellations as it waits for information from the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, National Transportation Safety Board, other regulatory authorities and Boeing to permit the aircraft to resume flying. Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 nosedived into the sea last October, killing all 189 passengers and crew. Boeing said at the time of the grounding that it expected that update to be available "within weeks".

The chief executive of Boeing, Dennis Muilenburg, apologised on Thursday for the lives lost in the two deadly crashes.

"The history of our industry shows most accidents are caused by a chain of events", he wrote in his apology. As pilots have told us, erroneous activation of the MCAS function can add to what is already a high workload environment. We have the responsibility to eliminate this risk, and we know how to do it.

Rosemount Aerospace, Inc. of DE, the manufacturer of components for the Max 8, is also named in the suit.

Two Houston law firms are suing the airline on behalf of Mucaad Hussein Abdalla. Musoni was a citizen of Rwanda and worked as a field coordinator with the U.N. Refugee Agency based in Sudan's East Darfur, according to the agency.
