They are not clever to sue the maintenance company and Boeing, as none of them is at fault.
It can not be proven to the line maintenance provider that they have overseen the circuit breaker popped, as this could have happened when the crew put their bags down there. The hydraulic leak is also not Boeing's fault as such things can and will happen in the future, but it requires a crew which can handle this.

They really should get hand of a LOT Airlines address in New York and sue LOT for improper crew training, crossing the atlantic in ETOPS even though the aircraft is not technically fit for a ETOPS operations. If they would have just returned to Chicago or New York after they got the hydraulic system error may be their brains would be still fresh without fatigue of a trans atlantic flight and very likely they would have more time to burn off fuel and troubleshoot the problem and would likely at some stage would have found the real cause of the problem (circuit breaker).

Sometimes the decision of who to sue is more about who has deep pockets, rather than who is to blame. This is particularly true when the actual merits of the case and trying to correctly assign liability are secondary considerations to lawyers and opportunistic people trying to get a chunk of cash out of a claimed "trauma".

Absolutely. And LOT's pockets are anything but deep. They've been close to bankruptcy for years. There's no money to be made from suing them.



Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

My perspective on this - they walked away alive and uninjured and should just settle with a refunded ticket and free return flight on LOT. This is not a case of criminal negligence by the airline or from the maintenance contractors. This is a freak accident and was handled extremely well by the crew. I can't see this case going anywhere and hope that those suing do not win, if you really have trauma go and see a counselor - you are not entitled to $$$ compensation!
