So most of it goes to their airline customers, and I expect a fair bit of that will find its way back to Boeing. An almost piddling amount to the families of the victims.

So it works out to about USD1.5 million per passenger, from Boeing. But the families may have been able to sue for compensation from the airlines as well. How much there would depend on the issue of negligence and whether covered by Montreal. Under Montreal there's an initial payout regardless of negligence, and more if negligence can be shown.

A former senior manager at Boeing's 737 plant in Seattle has raised new concerns over the safety of the company's 737 Max.

The aircraft, which was grounded after two accidents in which 346 people died, has already been cleared to resume flights in North America and Brazil, and is expected to gain approval in Europe this week.

In his report, Mr Pierson claims that regulators and investigators have largely ignored factors, which he believes, may have played a direct role in the accidents.

His report draws on material from the official investigations. It claims that both of the crashed aircraft suffered from - what he believes were - production defects, almost from the moment they entered service.
