The New York County Supreme Court has denied a motion of Embraer, in which it sought to strike compensation by Air Astana for damages related to issues with its fleet of E190-E2. The court wants Embraer to provide more answers to Air Astana’s claims first and present this during a preliminary conference that is scheduled for October 27. Embraer has to provide more evidence in Air Astana case.
The Supreme Court held a video conference on September 7 on a motion from Embraer, in which the Brazilian airframer sought to strike remedies of consequential damages that were demanded by Air Astana. As reported here before, the airline from Kazakhstan and Embraer have been embroiled in a legal case since last year over apparent deficiencies of its five E190-E2s that caused operational issues. Air Astana grounded the aircraft in early 2021 and claimed that the E2 was not airworthy, but that Embraer masked the deficiencies.
