Lawsuit filed against RTX due to P&W engine inspections | Airlines


Bernstein Liebhard, a United States (US)-based law firm, filed a lawsuit against RTX and is inviting investors to join in the class action motion that alleges that the company misled its investors about the state of the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine.

“Plaintiff alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period,” the announcement read, adding that the defendants, namely RTX, failed to inform investors about the fact that the GTF engines were affected by a quality control issue at least since 2015.
