CHICAGO — Two airplane passengers are suing the Boeing Company, General Electric Company and American Airlines Inc. for alleged negligence.

Peter and Kathleen McLoyd filed a complaint on May 21 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging they were on board the defendants' aircraft when an engine allegedly suffered a catastrophic failure and burst into flames while preparing to take off from Chicago O'Hare International Airport. As a result, the plaintiffs allegedly suffered bodily injuries. 

The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to properly maintain, service, inspect and repair their aircraft.
