Seattle, WA – Today it was revealed in a regulatory filing that Boeing has paid Alaska Airlines $160 million as “initial compensation” for damage done to the airline’s business, by the January 5, 2024 in-flight door plug blowout that terrorized all aboard the 737-MAX 9 airliner. Boeing apparently will pay the airline even more later for the loss of revenue caused by the airline’s “customer consideration.”

And yet, Boeing has still not compensated Alaska Airlines’ customers, those who were terrorized when the door plug blew off of the airline’s Flight 1282. Boeing has not even admitted liability in the lawsuits brought by those passengers.

Attorney Daniel Laurence, who with his firm represents multiple passengers, commented:

“Apparently, Boeing thinks it more urgent and important to pay those whose corporate profits were at stake, but not those whose lives were at stake and nearly lost.”
