The Polish airline LOT will ask Boeing for compensation for leaving its 737 MAX on the ground

The Polish airline LOT Polish Airlines will demand compensation from Boeing for problems with the 737 MAX 8 aircraft, the model involved in the two recent accidents in Ethiopia and Indonesia with more than 300 victims, which the company had to leave on the ground for the suspension of operations with this device.

“We will demand compensation for the expenses and the loss of income,” Adrian Kubicki, spokesman for the airline, confirmed to the newspaper ‘Dziennik Gazeta Prawna’.

The decision of LOT, which has five Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet, adds to the Polish Enter Air that had already announced claims to the manufacturer and the Norwegian low cost carrier Norwegian.

Initial assessments of the data showed that there could be similarities in the crashes of the aircraft operated by Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines of Indonesia.
