Following Eastern Airlines, Air China and Southern Airlines have filed formal claims against Boeing for the grounding of 737MAX.
This morning, Air China officials confirmed to reporters that Air China has filed a formal claim with Boeing for losses caused by the long grounding of Boeing 737MAX aircraft and the failure to deliver orders on time. It has become the second domestic airline after China Eastern Airlines to file a formal claim with Boeing.
After a Boeing 737 MAX plane crash in March, Ethiopian Airlines suffered a global grounding due to a short period of continuous air crashes. Data show that up to now, there are 96 737MAX models operated by domestic airlines.
It is also reported that Southern Airlines has formally written to Boeing to claim compensation for the loss caused by the grounding of Boeing 737MAX and the delayed delivery of 737max ordered earlier.
Since March 11, China Southern Airlines has suspended the commercial operation of 24 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. It is understood that China Southern Airlines has asked Boeing to negotiate the compensation plan as soon as possible.
