Terror in the Skies

The Blame Game

On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed en route to Nairobi, Kenya, killing all 157 passengers on board, including eight American citizens.  The crash involved a Boeing 737 MAX jet, the same jet involved in a crash of Lion Air flight 610 from Indonesia in October 2018.  Although investigators have not yet completed their investigation into the cause of the crash, the flight pattern of the jet suggests a problem with an automated anti-stall device on the plane (MCAS) which would push the nose of the jet down in certain circumstances in order to stabilize the aircraft.  With two crashes of the same jet in less than six months, the public is worried that the 737 MAX jet is not safe for the skies and wondering why the FAA ever approved of the 737 MAX jet in the first place.  Shares of Boeing stock have dropped more than 10% with billions of dollars in revenue from future orders of the 737 MAX jet now in jeopardy.In this episode of The Blame Game, we look at the potential civil liability of Boeing, Ethiopian Airlines and others for this tragic crash and try to answer one recurring question: who's to blame?
