    Just what Boeing needs right now, another big controversy.

    Boeing doesn't need anymore bad press right now even if its not related to actual aircraft production but to a Human Resource issue. There had been controversy over the South Carolina plant since it opened I always contributed to the Union busting Boeing is trying to achieve by building there, that's the only reason they did it, the planes rolling off the production lines at Everett kept this company on the top of the heap for years. It does seem the quality control in South Carolina is an issue considering the amount of labor they had to hire many who probably never touched an airplane before and the amount of reports that have surfaced. Serious allegations. Chewing gum sealing a cabin door, interesting. I wonder if Allegiant ever tried that. I do know they once sealed a pesky galley service door with duct tape once on an MD-88 because the aircraft wouldn't pressurize. There's another idea for them. Seriously this a long, arduous road for Boeing and sad to see such a legendary company getting hit with allegation after allegation and now ones affectingone of their employees. They fired the employee who put the noose over the gentleman's desk but what proactive steps are they taking to ensure this kind of behavior is not tolerated. I wouldn't want to go to work either in that environment. All of this is not good. I keep wondering when it will all end and how.

    I heard today that Boeing is 're-looking' at the 797. They need to get rid of the spineless Wall St. suck ups at Boeing.

    I heard that too. Meanwhile Airbus sells A321LR and the XLR types like crazy. Yeah, those jelly-spine Wall Street idiots need to be shown the door, and fast. If Boeing doesn’t kick into high gear on the 797, then they’ve lost that market. :mad:

    Definitely not good news for Boeing. Do they have a "Lemon Law" for airplanes like they do for cars?. If so maybe the airlines can turn in their B737MAX for a new Boeing 797 which is where Boeing should have been headed all along. Well I'm sure the Wall Street guys aren't to happy any way right now. I'm just afraid their reputation will not recover and their market share will be lost to Airbus.

    Even the people responsible in regulator's certification needs to go to jail or be fired.

    Happy 4th to you as well, LL.
