There was also the minor matter of Iran having just challenged a nuclear armed superpower, so people were out and about looking for incoming and outgoing missile/jet trails (and perhaps not wanting...

Something exploded a a few seconds before impact (fuel tank?) so fragmentation damage would not be unexpected.

If airport workers saw the fire on takeoff that would be pretty conclusive of not...

If it was part of the right solution, it would not take 20 years to come up with a regulatory fix. It is in nobody's interest (except perhaps China's) to have this fleet remain grounded for a long...

That is just words on paper, which can be changed. Only very slight weasel wording required, perhaps "unless the aircraft is equipped with <something that can be easily added to the MAX>". Electrical...

Because a real pilot(tm) would not be affected by toxic fumes, so it can't possibly be that.

Probably best to do it sooner rather than later when there might actually be a competitor capable of supplying product. This is one of those defining moments for a company, do we sit on the old...

Sounds like Boeing may be a little short on cash flow? My first company did this sort of thing in order not to pay suppliers. Note that Boeing is 'charging' Leonardo $26 million for repairing...

The plane is unsafe, according to the FAA. It is also uneconomical to operate. I'm not sure what Boeing is balking at, it is a relatively small cost to engineer a fix and come up with a cost for it,...

I think you are overestimating the role of directors (and Ambassadors), at least in the US companies which is the only country that I have any experience with. That is why I pointed out how far...

Notice what they think that the problem is, essentially simply a failure to persuade the FAA to let the plane fly. Nothing about the engineering culture at Boeing, that is all irrelevant to the...
