Any over under on Boeing delays through 2020?

I don't. They're a tremendous company with significant contributions to our economy and national defense. However, I do hope the events with the Max serve to recalibrate their strategic focus and leadership.
Their behavior with the MAX issue exemplifies their arrogance and greed.

It's pretty disgusting that so many people "in the know" at the company chose to look the other way. Hopefully they are sleeping well at night.

I agree with your sentiment, but the fact remains Boeing is a behemoth to the commercial aviation and defense sectors of our economy. They need to get their shit together . . .

“This airplane is designed by clowns, who are in turn supervised by monkeys.”

Never write in an email that which you don’t want to see in the NYT some day . . .
Unless you really think it's true in which case hopefully you're also writing official reports to highlight these risks.

Look, it's easy to disparage Boeing management but managing large, complex aviation systems isn't easy. It's even harder if you're trying to make money while doing it. It's also very hard to ensure that management understands what risk it's really accepting and that "shit" isn't being turned into "fertilizer" on the way up the chain.

Moving Boeing HQ from a place where engineers are everywhere (Seattle) to a place where there are no aerospace engineers but money people are everywhere (Chicago)...that sent a message.

Can you imagine how well a Division would run if the Divo or CPO never went down to the shop, Boeing HQ should have stayed in Seattle

Look, companies like this are entitled to act this way. There is no real accountability. As you can see, Muilenberg, whe, as CEO, was responsible for the death's of 346 people, is walking away with a $60 million dollar payout.

People do not realize that c-level executives, as well as board members, can be personally and individually named in lawsuits along side the company.
