Boeing to pay bereaved 737 families $144,500 each

BBC.COM
Families who lost relatives in two fatal Boeing 737 Max air crashes - in Indonesia and Ethiopia - are set to receive about $144,500 (P1,596,754) each from the company.

The money comes from a $50m financial assistance fund, which Boeing announced in July.

The fund has started accepting claims, which must be submitted before 2020.

15 families. 

"This is not something that is going to satisfy the families. The families really want answers."

More than 340 people died in the crashes. The Lion Air Boeing 737 Max crashed into the sea after taking off from Indonesia last October and the Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max crashed en route to Kenya in March.

The 737 Max plane has been grounded since March, as investigators evaluate its safety.
