Alaska announced that more refunds were expected in the following months, and the money will compensate for revenue losses from the year’s first three months.Regulators temporarily grounded nearly 200 Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft after a door plug detached from an Alaska Air aircraft shortly after takeoff.Thousands of flights were canceled.

However, a legal firm that is defending a couple of the travelers on the Alaskan trip has criticized the action.

“Apparently, Boeing thinks it more urgent and important to pay those whose corporate profits were at stake, but not those whose lives were at stake and nearly lost,” stated Daniel Laurence, a partner at the Stritmatter Firm.

As Boeing limits the number of new airplanes it manufactures in an effort to address manufacturing and safety issues, airlines are already struggling with delayed deliveries.

In February, Ryanair warned customers that their fares would increase as a result of the delays.

United Airlines, which had earlier warned investors that the suspension would have a negative financial impact, has asked pilots to volunteer for unpaid leave in response to the delivery modifications.
