Boeing may make good aeroplanes but it is not a failure in their capacity to do that which will destroy the company, it is the ‘Accountants’ that run it! A sad day when the accountants and financial people took over from engineers who understood aeroplanes. Now the CEO feels keeping shareholders happy is the major criteria for its operations. What can possibly go wrong? :roll:

New Boeing CEO Insists On Moving The Company Towards Irrelevance

Shortly after we (MoA) published our latest Boeing piece, asking if the company can survive, the new Boeing CEO and former board member David Calhoun held a call with the media. It confirmed our pessimistic take.

Calhoun said that nothing was wrong at Boeing. It is just that foreign pilots are incompetent, that Boeing workers lack practice and that its customers have no idea what they are talking about. Safety, he says, is just a prerequisite for shareholder value, not an inherent value in itself. Dividends must continue to flow, even when that requires the company to take on more debt. Boeing should not develop new airplanes as its derivatives of very ones can beat the competition. Calhoun also wants to stay in his new positions as long as possible even though he lacks the competence to fill it.

...three times the same airline cannot be a coincidence; but what is it?

that's really interesting. Never seen this before.

Would liked to have seen how the crash test dummies coped with the G Force on impact and throughout the crash and whether the crash is survivable. My guess is that it would be survivable but the flames and smoke might not be.
