China Southern Airlines and Air China are demanding compensation from Boeing for the delayed delivery and continued grounding of 737 Max aircraft since March, the two companies confirmed to Caixin on Wednesday.

China Eastern Airlines took a similar action on Tuesday, becoming the first Chinese airline to file a compensation claim against the American aerospace company.

On March 10, an Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all 189 people on board and raising safety concerns after the second deadly crash involving that model in five months.

China Southern, Air China and China Eastern operate 24, 15 and 3 planes from the 737 Max 8 line respectively, according to data released in March by VariFlight, a local aviation statistics company.
