The order book of Boeing for MAX aircraft could shrink by 35 jets as Russia's Avia Capital Services is looking to cancel the order in addition to suing the US plane maker for $225 million compensation.
The Moscow-based company has filed a lawsuit in the US claiming over $225 million from Boeing. The sum includes a $35 million deposit for the planes, as well as interest, compensation for damages and punitive damages, reports Financial Times.
Earlier this month, Dennis Muilenburg, CEO, Boeing, said that airlines remained the company’s “firm partners” despite months long MAX grounding, and the perspective of receiving their future MAX orders with lengthy delays.
"Boeing has no order cancellations," the CEO had said.
All Boeing 737 MAX production aircraft will have an activated and operable disagree alert and an optional angle of attack indicator. As the MAX returns to the air after recent software modifications are approved and certified, customers with previously delivered MAX airplanes will have the ability to activate the disagree alert per a service bulletin to airlines, a Boeing statement said Monday
Boeing has been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX for the past several months and in the aftermath of Lion Air Flight 610 crash “designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer.” This includes updates to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) flight control law, pilot displays, operation manuals and crew training
