The fam­i­lies of those who per­ished in the Boe­ing 737 Max crash­es are demand­ing the U.S. Jus­tice Depart­ment hold the air­craft man­u­fac­tur­er account­able by impos­ing a $24 bil­lion fine. This unprece­dent­ed penal­ty reflects the sever­i­ty of the two acci­dents, which trag­i­cal­ly took 346 lives.

Fol­low­ing the 737 Max crash­es in 2018 and 2019, the air­craft was ground­ed world­wide, expos­ing sig­nif­i­cant flaws in Boe­ing’s design and over­sight procedures. 

Lawyers for the fam­i­lies believe the $24 bil­lion fine – equiv­a­lent to Boe­ing’s 2022 prof­its – is war­rant­ed due to the com­pa­ny’s poten­tial crim­i­nal culpability.

“Boe­ing’s actions result­ed in the loss of 346 inno­cent lives,” stat­ed attor­ney Robert Clif­ford. “We demand the most severe penal­ties for this bla­tant dis­re­gard for human safe­ty. Only the max­i­mum fine will con­vey the grav­i­ty of this situation.”

In 2021, the Jus­tice Depart­ment set­tled fraud charges against Boe­ing relat­ed to the 737 Max for $2.5 bil­lion. How­ev­er, the fam­i­lies main­tain this penal­ty was inad­e­quate and failed to ensure true account­abil­i­ty. They urge the DOJ to pur­sue the max­i­mum legal fine.

This his­toric fine would not only hon­or the vic­tims but also com­pel Boe­ing to pri­or­i­tize safe­ty and trans­paren­cy through com­pre­hen­sive reforms. The fam­i­lies’ pur­suit of jus­tice remains a top pri­or­i­ty, two years after the 737 Max was cleared to fly again.
