Boeing Co was sued for $336 million on Wednesday by a Kuwaiti leasing company that accused it of wrongly refusing to return advance payments on a now-canceled order for 40 of its troubled 737 Max planes.
But that is not really the problem. The problem is that this "cancelled" order, cancelled allegedly in March 2020, still show up on the Boeing Order List in full as 40 unfillled orders.
Two proxy advisers, Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), have recommended that shareholders of Boeing Co vote against key board members of the planemaker to show objections to the company's handling of the 737 Max crisis.

Another snippet there is that Boeing are playing hardball with any airlines who had NOT agreed compo deals for the MAX groundings by January or so, they are not paying up for coronavirus, which is NOT the fault of Boeing may I add , but that does not affect any deals made last year.
Heres a thread which i will update, if's there is any interesting or any big news.
