  • Boeing chairman We feel the immense gravity of crashes

Lawyers handling claims against the U.S. aerospace company said the longer the passengers and crew were aware of their fate and suffered mental anguish, the larger the likely payout.

Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed in March shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia.

The first plane, Lion Air Flight 610, ditched into the Java Sea 12 minutes after taking off from Jakarta, Indonesia, on October 29 past year.

In both cases, the jets were 737 Max 8 models and all aboard died.

Thirty individual law suits have now been filed against Boeing on behalf of families with many more expected.

The history of the Boeing 737 MAX passenger jet could be in jeopardy, with the CEO of Ethiopian Airlines saying his company might not fly the plane again. "You get into 'What did you know and when did you know it?'"

Both pilots desperately struggled to take control of the aeroplanes as they intermittently dived while reaching speeds of close to 1,000km per hour.

Gebremariam said it's not enough for Boeing to only review the "MCAS" anti-stall system believed responsible for the fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The findings reveal how the aircraft's problematic flight-control system - whose catastrophic malfunctions have caused two fatal crashes since last October - made it through the FAA's approval process despite ongoing safety issues.

Sources told the Journal that the FAA's investigation didn't find evidence that Boeing officials deliberately provided incorrect data to the FAA, but it's not known what safety information Boeing provided to the agency before the MAX was approved.
