Boeing Offers Payouts To Families Of Crash Victims


The families of the 346 lost in two 737 Max crashes are eligible for a one-time payment of $144,000, part of a $50 million compensation fund set up in July.

(NBC News) Families who lost loved ones in two Boeing 737 Max crashes in Ethiopia and Singapore are now eligible to receive one-time payouts of nearly $145,000.

The money will come from a $50 million compensation fund Boeing set up in July.

The planes have been grounded since March.
