Southwest pilots sue Boeing for $100 million over lost wages from 737 MAX
09 October, 2019, 14:06
Boeing Co secured the first converted order in months for one of its grounded 737 MAX planes, company data for September showed on Tuesday, as it reported that total deliveries for the first nine months of 2019 had nearly halved from a year earlier.
Over the first nine months of the year, Boeing delivered 302 airplanes, compared with 571 by Airbus.
September deliveries totaled 26 planes, compared to 87 in September 2018, and 78 in 2017.
Boeing delivered a total of 63 commercial aircraft in the third quarter of 2019, nose-diving by two-thirds from the figure of 193 a year ago.
In a move sure to cause tension between Boeing and arguably its best customer in the USA, the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association filed suit against the planemaker today, alleging that Boeing misled the union when it claimed the 737 MAX flew just like its predecessor aircraft. It also alleges the grounding of the 737 MAX - which has resulted in thousands of flight cancellations at many airlines including Southwest - has reduced the pilots' opportunities for work.
The order by an anonymous customer was the first Max deal since June, when British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group SA announced its intent to buy 200 of the narrow-body jetliners.
European rival Airbus in contrast has 127 net orders this year and is within reach of its full-year goal of 880-890 deliveries despite factory snags.
Aviation regulators sought to play down talk of transatlantic divisions over safety changes to the 737 MAX, which was grounded after two crashes killed 346 people within five months. Boeing has repeatedly said it hopes to resume flights in the fourth quarter, which began on October 1.
