Beijing: China’s three biggest airlines have demanded compensation from Boeing over losses incurred by its grounded 737 MAX fleet as well as delayed deliveries of the aircraft, according to a media report on Wednesday. Air China, China Southern and China Eastern have filed claims for payouts, reports the BBC. China operates the largest fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and was the first country to take the jets out of service after the Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 crash on March 10 that killed all the 157 people on board.
