Does that get more compensation than an Accidental Death verdict ?

"British victims of an airline crash in Ethiopia where all 157 passengers and crew on board died were “unlawfully killed”, a coroner has concluded."

More manufacturing issues with the 737 Max

Issues found in the rear pressure bulkheads of airframes manufactured by Spirit... I am left wondering what other issues are yet undiscovered?

The good news is that this was discovered and being dealt with, instead of being ignored and covered up.

The quoted post states a highly condensed summation of many hundreds (or more) posts about the MAX debacles - plural, debacles - of Boeing: that conformance to sound engineering and quality assurance standards (not to mention regulatory requirements) could be referred to as "news."

Labor negotiations and problems on the spotlight airplane and production line problems leaked to the press? Say it isn't so.

Somehow the problem is all better now that the contract is agreed to.

I still dream of the day there is a labor strike over manufacturing quality issues.

MechEngr, I would gladly abandon my other "profesisonal development initiatives" and audition before the union's leadership to get the role of lead legal counsel for the labor organization in such an industrial action.

Okay, so maybe I've been influenced by the relative greater frequency of strikes in Europe, even - especially - in ATC.

Or maybe influenced by imagining the scene when Joe Patroni flies to New York, and barges into an airline executive office's with words like, to the effect, if you want to lose airplanes in flight, you can throw me out of your office, otherwise, you need to listen to what's wrong with [component part]. The scene definitely is in the book, maybe not in the movie . . . . though of course George Kennedy's portrayal of Joe Patroni is one of the Hollywood motion pictures industry's greatest portrayals.

Indeed it was. Great book . But that was 50 years ago.
For a good understanding of how corporate America reacts to "knowledgeable" people marching in an office with bad news may I suggest the excellent documentary " Painkiller" on Netflix on OxyContin . I am prepared to bet the reaction of Purdue executives is very similar to what Boeing board room is planning right now.
