take the insurance money, pay off the passenger lawsuits that have already started
|Quoting Revelation (Reply 5):|
I would imagine they have "lawsuite(sic) insurance" too, no?
|Quoting Mika (Reply 9):|
I was wondering how they manage to keep up with the demand now since they are short on one A/C, what A/C is now rostered to the flights that the crashed one would have made originaly?
|Quoting FlySSC (Reply 13):|
There won't be any cancellation due to a/c shortage :
AF was operating a fleet of 21 A343 (as 1 a/c, F-GLZB was sold earlier this year) but the summer program was built only for 19 aircraft.
|Quoting Rpaillard (Thread starter):|
will AF go and buy a new A340/300 from Airbus ?

or take the insurance money, pay off the passenger lawsuits that have already started,
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 13):|
Also, given the set liability limits under international law (which governs this crash), that should be predetermined.
|Quoting PADSpot (Reply 12):|
would assume they have a fully comprehensive cover. It pays for the aircraft and for passenger-related damage events of whatever type ...
|Quoting Ultrapig (Reply 18):|
Becuase there were no deaths and because there are no reported serious dehabilitating injuries my guess is that the total loss will not exceed the deductible.
|Quoting Avek00 (Reply 19):|
Granted, no one was critically injured, but generally speaking, 'tis better to be dealing with dead plaintiffs than live ones - the dead ones can't testify to the horrors they experienced.
|Quoting Udo (Reply 20):|
So you think it would be more comfortable to deal with plaintiffs who lost friends, relatives and their loved ones?
|Quoting Wdleiser (Reply 22):|
and then try and testify and talk about all their emotional trauma they received by the accident and how only a large sum of money will make it go away.
|Quoting Avek00 (Reply 21):|
While a jury is no doubt sympathetic to the tears of a bereaved relative whose loved one is gone, it is FAR more sympathetic to the live testimony of a victim who can relive the horrific events second-by-second and go into infinite detail about the after-effects suffered.
