            And yet, after everything thats happened with the 787... we are watching the 737-Max Drama unfold. Year 2019. How is it possible that the Boeing Managers are still not in jail. Unbelivable.

                    that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. If being a whistleblower would make it harder to live that means that basically every single corporation is disgustingly corrupt

                        Batteries bursting into flames, Rolls Royce engines exploding, wing cracks... I'm going to fly on a B787 in a couple of months and I'd be lying if I said I'm not worried after this documentary.

                              Corporate thugs is an accurate description of how Boeing has regressed since moving from Seattle to Chicago. It affects their decision-making on both 787 and 737 programs.

                                You shouldn’t have to “craft a proper response” if nothing you’re doing is shady or wrong.

                                  People wonder why I won’t fly... just thinking about it gives me anxiety yet I don’t mind dying, I just don’t want it to be traumatic.

                                    First the dreamliner then the max. Maybe boeing really doesnt care about safety.

                                            What's with Boeing and shortcuts? This then the 737 Max? Is this what American industry has come to, ignoring passenger safety for a quick buck? Boing needs to be investigated not only for the 737 but just overall, god only knows exactly what they're doing.

                                                      Looks like the 737 MAX is following in the same process used in building the 787 and that is NOT a good sign...

                                                      MCAS design and implementation were inexcusable for both Boeing and the FAA... It was designed to crash aircraft if a sensor failed and there was no testing of what the plane would do if any of many other sensors failed...

                                                      Same for other parts of the 737 MAX that the FAA has finally discovered that it was not manufactured to proper specifications.

                                                      It might be 10, 15 or 20 years before we really see manufacturing defects causing planes to crash and by then those who made bad decisions will be long-gone from Boeing...

Boeing is so worried about AirBus they have seemed to lose their former cornerstones of safety with unquestionable reliability for shorter term profits. The new 787 being a blank sheet should have been a brilliant new plane with no fixes needed. The fact it wasn't raised some questions for sure. Boeing says 787 fixed. Time for a next act: Boeing rolls out a revised 737 that they knew was flawed and needed some kind of computer/software not bothering to fully explain or train for this important necessary fix. You know I think Wall Street has been at the root of so many bad things. While it's the new board and corporate mentality of Boeing that caused all this grief, it's the temptation to perform every quarter on Wall Street that sets the stage. There is a dark and evil element that permeates and surrounds Wall Street. Too bad our whole economy seems to revolve around this whimsical mysteriously shrouded entity. Too bad good companies go bad chasing Wall Street profits over all else. @TheYottaTube: you are correct about nothing too revealing yet about the 737Max. It's kind of strange 5 months ago there were so many news bytes on it and so little since. Right now there seems to be nothing except of final software fix should be in October 2019 to fly again either at end of year or early 2020. In other words, not much investigation so far considering this is a much bigger problem than the 787's? As an American I wish for Boeing to survive by doing the right thing instead of the easy thing.

I really hope they get the kicking they deserve. Their sick corporate culture much change. Think it is Airbus for me from now on.
