Boeing slowing production of 737 Max jets after fatalities

When you board an aircraft in New York or another part of the country, you likely do so without thinking too much about whether the aircraft you will ride in is, in fact, safe for travel. Regrettably, several recent fatal plane crashes have raised concerns about air travel and potentially defective flight control software, and so much so that the company behind the planes at the center of the controversy are slowing production on new ones. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we understand that many Americans are now hesitant to travel on these particular planes, and we have helped many people who suffered injuries or lost loved ones in plane crashes seek recourse.

According to NPR, Boeing, the company behind theĀ Boeing 737 Max planes involved in both fatal crashes, is reducing production on the controversial aircraft, transitioning from manufacturing 52 of the planes each month to 42. Though Boeing has about 4,600 orders for the plane that are outstanding, many passengers across the United States and the globe are becoming fearful of boarding these particular airplanes because much is still unknown about what caused the two recent crashes.

Within a period of about five months, two Boeing 737 Max planes crashed, with one incident claiming the lives of 189 people, and the other, 157 people. While the world is still awaiting definitive answers about what ultimately caused the two crashes, many believe that a flight-control software known as MCAS must haveĀ malfunctioned in a manner that contributed to the fatal crashes.

Preliminary findings from an investigation into one of the crashes revealed that the pilots tried to avoid the crash using procedures Boeing had instructed them to use, but to no avail. You can find out more about defective or malfunctioning aircraft on our webpage.
