Boeing faces U.S. lawsuit in Chicago for 737 Max 8 crash in Ethiopia

Boeing has taken a number of steps to improve safety for its new MAX airline models amid growing concerns after two planes crashed, killing all passengers on board.

The company said numerous updates were made in the last two weeks, after an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed March 10 and killed all 157 aboard.

Boeing said it could not comment on the suit.

He vowed that Garuda Indonesia did not plan to shift its order to another aircraft maker but ask Boeing to offer the airline other types of aircraft.

Federal aviation officials expect the software update - which was designed by Boeing based off findings from October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia - will be approved by the Federal Aviation Administration in the coming days.

On Wednesday US crew declared an emergency "performance issue" after taking off in a 737 MAX and returned to the Orlando, Florida airport safely. "We are evaluating whether we will shift to Airbus or keep Boeing", he added. Ethiopian officials were expected to release their preliminary findings shortly. The lawsuit, filed in IL, has been brought on behalf on one of the victim's estates and accuses Boeing of "a defective design, and concomitant inadequate warnings, of the Boeing 737 Max 8".

Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302 crashed minutes after takeoff in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), on March 10, 2019.

The US Department of Justice is investigating Boeing's development process, while the government is to review how the FAA certifies new aircraft, with questions being asked about the extent of self-certification by manufacturers.

The European Aviation and Space Agency certified the plane as safe partly because it said additional training would "clearly explain" to pilots the "unusual" situations in which they would need to manipulate a rarely used manual wheel to control, or "trim", the plane's angle.

Boeing hopes a software fix that it plans to introduce may address a problem common to both accidents that killed a total of 346 people, as investigators into the two accidents focus on new anti-stall software known as MCAS. The most recent Ethiopian Airlines crash occurred in March.

Boeing has suggested using two existing cut-out switches could have prevented the Lion Air disaster, but it has also announced proposals to beef up the system and improve training. Boeing Co on April 27, 2016, reported a 9 percent drop in first-quarter profit, citing an after-tax charge from the KC-46 aerial refueling tanker it is developing for the U.S. Air Force.
