RAM-Boeing: No agreement has yet been reached on the 737 Max

According to an authorized source of the national company, negotiations are still continuing with the American manufacturer but for the moment no agreement has yet been found for compensation related to the immobilization of its 2 Boeing 737 Max and the delivery freeze of 2 other units.

For our interlocutor, the supplier and its customer have not yet found a financial agreement like the one recently concluded between the Boeing group and the company American Airlines which immobilized its 24 Max after the accidents of Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air, having killed 346.

If the amount of compensation paid to this carrier has not been made public, it must however be substantial knowing that the 1st American company intends to distribute $ 30 million to its employees as part of its internal profit sharing program.

Ditto for his compatriot and rival Southwest who announced to distribute to his employees $ 125 million taken from the compensation recently obtained after an agreement with Boeing.

If the priority of the aircraft manufacturer remains to return to service and safely all 737 MAX immobilized, the fact remains that the American giant was forced to enter in its accounts an exceptional charge of 5.6 billion dollars to compensate customers, companies and rental companies.
