Stop working with Boeing and retire your Boeing planes NOW!

Boeing’s aircraft have resulted in more than 6,000 aviation accidents and incidents worldwide. Out of those 6,000, 415 were fatal accidents, and more than 9,000 people have died as a result of Boeing’s faulty aircraft.

And just in the last two months, a Boeing plane door plug exploded on an Alaska Airlines flight; a Boeing plane suddenly nosedived mid-flight, injuring 50 people on a Latam Airlines flight; and a United Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing when a wheel fell off the Boeing plane, damaging and crushing several cars in San Francisco. This is dangerous and unacceptable.

Why is this important?

Out of Alaska Airlines' 314 operational airplanes, 73% of Alaska Airlines' fleet are Boeing planes. And United Airlines, one of the largest airlines in the world and one of Boeing's top customers, has more Boeing 737 Max 9 aircrafts than any other airline. They had five serious incidents with Boeing planes last week alone.

Since 2020, there have been a shocking 1,800 service difficulty reports from airlines to government regulators about the Boeing 737 Max planes—from fuel leaks to engine stalls. But despite the glaring and egregious safety concerns with Boeing's production, Alaska Airlines, as of August 28, has transitioned to an all-Boeing fleet.

The Alaska Airlines Boeing incident is the third major incident from Boeing in the past five years—with the two heartbreaking crashes in 2018 and 2019 that resulted in the death of more than 340 people. And less than a month before January's Alaska Airlines Boeing incident, employees at a Boeing supplier sounded the alarm about safety concerns with Boeing 737 Max jets, but their warnings were ignored, they were told to falsify records, and workers were retaliated against for speaking out.

But this is not new. Boeing’s former CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, was fired and accused of creating a culture that put profits ahead of safety, notably telling Congress, "We don't 'sell' safety; that's not our business model."

Even Boeing employees, journalists, and investigators have said that Boeing has cut corners and prioritized cost-cutting over safety and employee concerns.

The dangerous and deadly trend of Boeing aircraft accidents is alarming. We can't allow Boeing to earn billions of dollars while potentially cutting corners and allowing glaring safety issues to slip past.

Major airlines like Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, and Southwest Airlines must do the right thing and retire their Boeing planes. Will you sign the petition?
