It is now 45 days after MH370 went missing.  Relatives of missing passengers are now lining up to sue Boeing – the U.S. manufacturer of the missing plane.  While I understand the grief of the relatives it seems a bit frivolous to sue the plane’s manufacturer.  Since we don’t yet have a clue what happened to the plane it is hard to imagine that relatives can show that Boeing is liable.

It seems likely that Boeing will settle for some undisclosed sum of money simply to avoid the long and expensive legal battle.
