A Russian aircraft leasing company is suing Boeing for breach of contract in connection with its grounded 737 MAX in what is the first lawsuit brought against the US manufacturer by a customer over the safety crisis.
Avia Capital Services, a subsidiary of Russian state conglomerate Rostec, claims two deadly crashes were due to the "negligent actions and decisions of Boeing" not just in designing a plane that was "defective" but also in "withholding critical information" from the US aviation safety regulator during certification.
The complaint, which was filed in Cook county circuit court in Chicago on Monday, claims that Boeing "intentionally" failed to disclose information about the airworthiness of the Max to its customers, including Avia, in order to induce them to buy the aircraft.
