Southwest May Share Boeing Max Compensation With Employees


Southwest Air expects to receive compensation from Boeing for the Max groundings and may share some of it with employees, CEO Gary Kelly said. Pictured are two Southwest jets. Bloomberg

Skift Take: Don’t expect other airlines to copy Southwest. But the airline is producing less operating income this year than expected because it can’t fly the Boeing 737 Max. That means employees are earning slightly less in profit sharing, so it makes sense Southwest might share some of its restitution from Boeing with workers.
