I With all the bad things that were said about CaptainX, up to now, he seems to have been right...

And also to have been identified: we haven't read from him in quite a long moment.


I begin to wonder if we will see an airplane program running on time, once in our lifetimes...

It is unfortunate that they are having such a tough time. I certainly wasnt happy when Airbus had their A380 production problems, I was just critical of management. Well now, I feel maybe Boeing management has some questions to answer. Perhaps they should have been more conservative with their timeline placed in April, and allowed a bit more time. I am just not sure. It is also unfortunate that the strike will harm an already tight schedule.

Given the very advanced nature of the 787, that should have been a given right from the start. Seems they would have given themselves some room for mistakes, even major ones. If nothing bad happened, they'd be ahead of the proposed schedule and would have looked like real pros. As it is, they look something other than professional. They have egg all over their faces and have no one to blame but themselves.

The new management after Mullaly just hasn't been up to it.

And the suspicion is, the strike will be a good excuse to announce another delay. I have been told months before negotiations started, that Boeing wanted a strike. So many rumors, but now I begin to wonder if this is true.
