|Quoting DIRECTFLT (Thread starter):|
But, if Boeing botched the repair job, were there ever any civil or criminal actions taken against Boeing ?
Did Boeing ever pay any money to anyone as a result of the the botched repair ?
|Quoting bueb0g (Reply 1):|
There were not any criminal charges against Boeing - Japanese prosecutors decided not to, after Boeing settled fairly amicably with the families involved. So yes, Boeing did pay compensation (and quite a healthy amount too, although I don't know the actual figures) and no, there were no charges against them.
To be honest, Boeing didn't really have a choice - in a society where honour is so important, Boeing would have been signing a waiver for any future orders in Japan had they not paid proper compensation to the families...
