Following a spring and summer hamstrung by scandal, Boeing announced today that the families affected by the two 737 Max 8 crashes will each receive $144,500.

The crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 resulted in the deaths of 346 passengers and crew members. The plane has been grounded since March.

Boeing announced in July it would set aside over $100 million for the “family and community needs of those affected” by the crashes.
