Pardon my French, but this is pure BS. Swiss Air 111 has nothing to do with it. They went to dump fuel because they thought they have successfully choked the fire in the wiring that they thought they...

Have you checked the flag on the townhall lately? The basis of the lawsuit will be the lawyer gets 30% of the settlement. A few years ago, a woman sued an automaker (Chrysler I think) because her...

Interesting. So it was okay to dump fuel on Kyrgyz children near Manas airbase for a decade, yet when it happens in LA, it's suddenly a tragedy? Very interesting.

The problem, fdr, is that you (and actually anyone inside the US) think that only the company needs to be fixed. Enron, Boeing, Amazon, whatever. I know this might sound like a dooms-day...

Good riddance! His most recent escapade was the most outrageous. Signing a meaningless LOI with Boeing and publically calling it "an order for 200 737MAX" is just childish. You can't remain a CEO of...

Even if true, which I doubt, it's hardly "the problem with the C-series". First Boeing 787s cost $400mil to build. It's quite usual for any new product.
