Abdalla, 31, had recently married.

Some Wall Street analysts have warned that the potential impact to Boeing's revenue as it cuts production of the plane, as well as slightly fewer revenue-generating flight by airlines who operate the plane, could have an impact on the United States' first quarter GDP reading. It alleges that Boeing "actively concealed the nature of the automated system defects" and, in doing so, demonstrated a "conscious disregard for the lives of others". All the people on the flight got killed in this incident.

"Once again, corporate greed has prioritized profits over safety with tragic consequences for the public". "Our goal with this lawsuit is to obtain answers for our grieving clients and hold those accountable for creating this tragedy".

"Safety is a core value for everyone at Boeing and the safety of our airplanes, our customers' passengers and crews is always our top priority", read a statement from Boeing's Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Kevin McAllister.

Boeing's crisis measures were initially followed by pilots of the airliner that crashed a month in Ethiopia for coping with a sudden recession of the nose of their airplane but could not regain control, based on a report. It has been found that this incident is quite similar to the one which took place in an Indonesian airlines; this crash was the Lion Air flight.

The preliminary report will be closely scrutinized for similarities to the Lion Air crash, but officials said it would be months before the full report is released. "The software update worked as planned and the pilots landed securely at Boeing Field".

Canacccord Genuity cut its price target on Boeing shares to $380 from $391.93 and said it now saw July 2019 as the date the MAX grounding could be lifted "in a best-case scenario".

The update adds additional layers of protection and will prevent erroneous data from causing MCAS activation.

Therefore, "we are downgrading LUV from Outperform to Market Perform due to near term earnings risk related to the grounding of the MAX fleet, which we now believe may run into the summer months". What we do know, however, is that airlines are losing nearly $60 million a day because of the 737 MAX grounding.

Rosemount Aerospace, Inc. of DE, the manufacturer of components for the Max 8, is also named in the suit.

Two Houston law firms are suing the airline on behalf of Mucaad Hussein Abdalla.

First-quarter earnings for S&P 500 companies are expected to contract by 2.3 per cent from a year ago, according to Refinitiv data.
