Background on The Boeing Company

Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, Boeing is a multinational aerospace company that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide.

The Securities Fraud Claims


The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or omissions regarding Boeing’s business, operations, and prospects, including that the Company failed to disclose they had been prioritizing its profits over safety, leading to poor quality control standards in the production of its commercial aircraft such as the 737 MAX, resulting in a heightened risk of manufacturing flaws that could render the Company’s new airplanes unsafe.

On January 5, 2024, a panel called a “door plug” flew out the side of a 737 MAX 9 (a variant of the 737 MAX) during Alaska Airlines Flight 1282, leaving a gaping hole in the plane’s main cabin, feet away from where passengers were sitting. Due to the gravity of this incident, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded 171 of the 737 MAX 9 planes pending further investigation to determine the cause of this incident.

Then on January 12, 2024, the FAA announced that it would conduct a comprehensive audit of the production line of the 737 MAX 9 and its associated suppliers. Subsequently, on January 16, 2024, Wells Fargo lowered its rating of Boeing’s stock, citing the risks associated with the FAA’s inspection of the Company’s production standards. Upon receiving this news, the price of Boeing’s stock dropped by nearly 8%. On January 24, 2024, news outlets reported that the FAA had declared that it would not allow Boeing to expand production of the 737 MAX due to safety concerns related to the January 5, 2024 incident. Consequently, the price of Boeing’s stock fell by almost 6%.
