Boeing quality manager says the Dreamliner is also unsafe, “fly something else”

According to John Barnett, when Boeing transferred some of its 787 Dreamliner manufacturing capacity to non-unionized South Carolina back in 2010, the exceptionally high safety standards that Boeing used to be known for basically went out the window. Much of the quality control that existed back in Washington was abandoned, he says, and it was almost as if Boeing became a completely different company almost overnight – and not in a good way.

“They started pressuring us to not document defects, to work outside the procedures, to allow defective material to be installed without being corrected,” Barnett says. “They started bypassing procedures and not maintaining configurement control of airplanes, not maintaining control of non-conforming parts – they just wanted to get the planes pushed out the door and make the cash register ring.”
