One n two n's burg or berg, the major blame towards him, as occured in his tenure - besides being a follower of the predominant sharholder value cult - should be in the way how the grounding was handled:
  • Numerous premature announcements of return to service, thereby manipulating the stock market.
  • By continuation of production, he defacto precluded any effective hardware solution or even termination of the 737 programme by making it a too big too fail gamble. Thereby he coerced the regulators and public to accept a series of substandard software band aids.
That's his legacy. And he should be held responsible.
