Boeing Built Deadly Assumptions Into 737 Max, Blind to a Late Design Change – The New York Times
What a painful article to read. It paints the picture of a company that is at best unaware of what is going on across all divisions. It sounds much worse than that. The FAA was kept in the dark, and it also looks like a “yes man” with whatever Boeing wanted. Boeing’s world of hurt continues… and it’s all self-inflicted.
Two for the road:
JetBlue Announces Commercial Team Appointments – JetBlue News
The headline makes it sound so routine, but buried at the bottom of the release is the big news that JetBlue’s Chief Commercial Officer Marty St George is done at the airline. Judging from the rest of the release, it looks like JetBlue has tapped three people (or 2 + 1 to be named later) to replace him. That feels about right. JetBlue is going to miss him.
Hawaiian alleges ‘discriminatory’ treatment at LAX – FlightGlobal
I think this Twitter exchange summarizes how I feel about this.
