Alaska Airlines passengers are suing Boeing in Washington after a “plugged” emergency exit door flew off mid-air on Flight 1282 last week that resulted in the grounding of all 737 MAX 9 planes in U.S. territory.

The big picture: A Seattle company filed the lawsuit against the aircraft maker on behalf of six named passengers and “all others similarly situated,” who were aboard the 737 MAX 9 jet last Friday, alleging “the event physically injured some passengers and emotionally traumatized most if not all aboard.”
