— Pi­lots for South­west Air­lines say the ground­ing of Boe­ing’s trou­bled 737 Max air­craft is cost­ing them about $9 mil­lion a month in lost wages. The South­west Air­lines Pi­lots As­so­ci­a­tion, which rep­re­sents 10,000 pi­lots, said Wed­nes­day that it’ll seek re­im­burse­ment from Boe­ing for lost wages and le­gal costs in­curred by the union for co­op­er­at­ing with the U.S. De­part­ment of Justice. It’s the first la­bor group to join car­ri­ers in push­ing to re­cover costs from Boe­ing. The union told The Dal­las Morn­ing News that the $9 mil­lion fig­ure is “a con­ser­va­tive es­ti­mate.”
