Family members of two Boeing 737 Max plane crash victims demand prosecution and $24.8bn for “the deadliest corporate crime in US history.”
For the “enormous human costs of Boeing’s crimes,” the families’ lawyer, Paul Cassell, said the payout was “justified and clearly appropriate.”
The BBC received a 32-page letter from Mr. Cassell suggesting the US government prosecute corporate executives after two 2018 and 2019 catastrophes killed 346 people.
According to the letter, Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun apologized to Congress Tuesday.
“I apologize for the grief that we have caused,” he told accident victims’ families.
Boeing disaster victims’ family confront CEO during apologies for ‘far from ideal’ culture.
Similar conditions killed 346 people in two 737 Max disasters.
In October 2018, Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing 189.
Six minutes after takeoff, an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa crashed in March 2019. Each of 157 passengers died.
Both cases had flight controls that failed.
Mr. Calhoun told Congress the company “learned” from its mistakes.
Despite Boeing’s whistleblower reprisal, he “listened” to them.
A 2021 Boeing fraud charge relating to the two catastrophes may be revived by the Justice Department.
The case has been dormant since the corporation resolved by admitting it deceived aviation safety regulators about the 737 Max and pledging to create a new compliance system to detect and prevent fraud.
After a door panel of an Alaska Airlines 737 Max airplane blew off in January, causing a hole in the fuselage, prosecutors concluded that the settlement was breached last month.
By July 7, the Justice Department must decide to resume the lawsuit.
Mr. Cassell said that his clients asked the department to assign a share of future fines to an independent safety and compliance monitor for the business.

Boeing crash victim’s mother cries, “How could you?”
Accident victims’ relatives held photographs during Tuesday’s congressional session.
ZIPPORAH KURIA, whose father perished in the 2019 Boeing 737 MAX 8 crash, went from England to Washington DC to hear the Boeing CEO address the Senate and the public about safety improvements.
“The US government should prosecute Boeing and its executives for 346 deaths. We won’t stop till justice.”
