    All manufacturers have QC problems. If Boeings quality has fallen it truly is sad!

    The FAA and Boeing are on the carpet for that MAX accidents and it is not going away to soon.

    THe people directly involved have by now retired, quit, transferred or disappeared! o_O

    I kinda figured out when they opened the Charleston facility and announced it non-union that Boeing like many other companies including my own (Hertz has 2 divisions "HLE -Hertz Local Edition" where everyone has the word "Manager-----Something" in their title meaning no overtime or unions and RAC - Rent A Car the legacy division that operates most of the Airport locations and important local downtown locations, employees are union get paid uniforms, overtime etc), again that Boeing was trying to circumvent unions. I thought the early reports of QC problems at the Charleston facility were "teething" problems but I guess it comes down to the culture again. They have an different workforce, management and culture than Everett has. So a lower standard, lower paid and lower experienced workforce leads to lower product quality. No surprise there. It is a shame that the company that once stood for Engineering Excellence and innovation were invaded by the Wall Street types and their compromise on quality not only killed 346 people but their reputation I believe is permanently damaged and I'm a Boeing guy. What a shame. You may celebrate your 100th Anniversary but just do it quietly to avoid embarrassment.
