    Been told by my doctor to check the prescription bottles I get for the manufacturer. Then Google the name. If it is based in India ask my pharmacy for a different brand as she told me the Indian QC is horrendous up to including drywall in some of the medication. Usually the potency and mixture of the actual active medication can vary tremendously and make the medication ineffective. So the FDA does nothing also. Try asking CVS for a different brand of generic and see what answer you get. The outsourcing of some things so important to health, and safety of our aircraft should never be outsourced. Once again what did they save? Constant corrections, inadequate coding. Doing the same thing over until you get it right. Had a U.S. based programmer did it albeit at a higher cost it would have cost the same because of all the errors that have to be fixed by the offshore teams. I never understand this management philosophy.

    They jump over dollars to pick up dimes. Those corporate buffoons, most have them never sold anything face to face in their lives, never understood that price is not cost. Hopefully that idiocy costs them their jobs.

    Little or for that fact no news at all with the progress of the fix for 737MAX, The revenue lost by the airlines that fly these planes especially over the peak summer months in particular Norwegian which the MAX was there Transatlantic aircraft forced to scramble both aircraft and passengers I'm sure will be borne by Boeing. My mother's old saying "No News is Good News" I'm afraid doesn't hold up in this situation. I think the "No News" is this MCAS problem has ballooned into a monster bigger than originally anticipated.

    I hears today that RyanAir will stand to loose 5 million customers traveling with them in the next year because of this.

    No telling what the total will be for all airlines that fly (or try to fly) the 737 Max.

    The total for the airlines losing money everyday as the planes stay grounded, the delayed deliveries, any cancellations on the orders that they haven't received yet plus any orders they might have received but now won't will cost Boeing billions. I did hear a short story on CNBC today that the fix might not only mean a software fix but a structural one as well which means long delays and billions of more dollars. They didn't specify what the "structural fix" might involve. I don't think we'll see the 737MAX back into the air until the first quarter of 2020. Billions of dollars that could have went into a B757 replacement instead of jury rigging a 55 year old design. I'm not saying the Boeing 737 isn't a fine aircraft but I think the time had come for Boeing to move on to a new generation of aircraft. Wall Street still rules and the Wall Street guys and unfortunately Boeing and it's employees will take the hit.

    Wow! How many house hearings does it take? Or is that all they are, just “hearings” and no “doing”? :confused:
