Boeing Pleads Guilty To Criminal Fraud Charge Related To 737 Max Crashes

Boeing has pleaded guilty to a felony concerning the 737 Max crashes from 2018 and 2019 that resulted in over 300 deaths. As a penalty, the multinational aviation supergiant must pay a fine of nearly $250 million and spend $455 million on safety and compliance programs. Boeing has been in the news quite a bit lately for recent lapses in quality control, including the infamous Alaska Airlines “door plug” incident. Finally, Boeing will be given an “independent corporate monitor” to assure compliance with the quality control concerns. This was most likely done because there were always sanctions on Boeing from the 737 Max crashes, including tightening quality control, which did not work well, judging by recent issues.
