DUBLINBoeing is seeking the dismissal of Norwegian’s lawsuit over the grounded MAX aircraft, while some creditors have taken legal action against the troubled airline, the Irish Times reported.


The American planemaker wants to halt the USD1 billion lawsuit against the company, which was filed during the summer. Norwegian claimed the manufacturer was at fault for contract violations worth more than that amount.

Norwegian has said it would have canceled an order for 92 aircraft, but Boeing still has them on its order book. Boeing told the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, where Norwegian filed its suit, that it was seeking to have part or all of the action dismissed. The case is due to be heard on December 15, which is eight days after Norwegian’s Irish case is due back before the High Court in Dublin.

An independent expert report written by Ken Fennell, partner at the Dublin office of Deloitte, suggests that Norwegian has a chance of survival if it succeeds in cutting its fleet and future aircraft orders and attracts new finance.#
