How disgusting. Such a terrible attack on our country shouldn't feed the rest of the world's stereotype that all we do is sue and try to blame other people for something no one could have forseen besides intelligence. AA, UA, Boeing, and the Port Authority suffered on that painful day. AA, UA and the Port Authority lost many employees on that tragic day as well as the plaintiffs, let's not forget. It is the job of the FAA to ensure the skies are safe, not AA, UA, Boeing and especially not the Port Authority.
If there's someone to sue here, it's the government agencies. They're ultimately responsible for protecting us from these things.

I'm quite sure you'd feel very different if a family member was lost.
With little or no security...no reinforced cockpit doors, this was an accident waiting to happen (if you can't get in the cockpit--you can't control the plane!).
Airlines responsible? Yes, there is contributory negligence. The cases will prove that.

Actually, reinforced cockpit doors were outlawed. It was a federal regulation that all doors must be weak so that in case of emergency they could be easily opened (IE, a shoulder or kick) for evacuation. Flight Attendants were also required by federal regulations to carry a key to the cockpit, so there's your access point regardless.

It's stupid, how Boieng, AA, and UAL could prevent a thing that have never happened before, and has posteds before why Govenrment agencies where not blamed since now it's known that they knew that an attack like that could happen and did nothing? Now want to blame AA, UAL and Boeing cuase that???? It's stupid and has you posted before LAWYERS i really don't hate them but there are a few that only looks for damaged people to get money for themselves, What a shame.
P.D. Excuse me for my english.
Just put me on any modern airliner and i will be happy, give me more star alliance miles and i will be a lot more happy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...
The FAA is the total and only responsible entity for the attacks on 9/11. Their regulations are the ones that LEGALIZED box cutters and switchblade knives to be taken aboard US airlines.
Let me say that one more time. It was an FAA rule that box cutters and knives with 3 inch blades were permissable to be carried on board passenger aircraft.
And the morons in the FAA didn't think that box cutters and knives couldn't harm or kill people?????
Typical FAA. The blood law is the only thing they know how to live by. They never make a change to something that they know is dangerous until somebody dies. It's an absolute asinine policy. It makes me sick.

How does suing them help anything?
I helps the attorney's wallet! With the absolute GLUT of attorneys, attorneys figure, "let's throw something up against the wall and see if it sticks". To take advantage of a worldwide tragedy for financial gain is absolutely reprehensible! So what happens...we get rich attorneys, we screw up the USA's transportation system and the USA's economy along with it. For what? Our beloved deceased are still just that. I pray for those lost on 9/11 and I pray for the souls of those soulless heartless sick minded attorneys. St. Peter ain't letting them through the pearly gates!!

>You know coffee is hot....you don't sue if it spills
Wrong, there was such a lawsuit in this country. Back in the 1980s, I guess. A lady was driving with a cup of coffee held between her thighs. The coffee spilled. She did sue. I am not 100% sure whom, but, as far as I remember, it was the coffee place: for selling too hot coffee. And, again, if I am not mistaken, it was in Ohio, "The heart of everything".
