"It Was Go, Go, Go": Boeing Rushed 737 MAX Design In Race With Airbus | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


"It Was Go, Go, Go": Boeing Rushed 737 MAX Design In Race With Airbus

A major decision that Boeing made almost a decade ago has resulted in the greatest threat to the aerospace giant's reputation and the bottom line at the company after two major plane crashes in just under six months.

Back in 2011, American Airlines, who was an exclusive Boeing customer for more than 10 years, was getting ready to defect from the company in favor of purchasing hundreds of new jets from Airbus, according to The New York Times. Airbus had been stealing market share from Boeing for several years, and losing American Airlines would have been a crushing blow, costing billions of dollars in lost sales and thousands of jobs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rushing design on as complicated a craft as was the 737, almost guaranteed that something was going to go wrong, and unfortunately, those flaws cost hundreds of lives; I frankly think that Boeing may not be able to recover, because of a cascade of class-action lawsuits against them on this issue.
