Boeing To Blame?

Egyptian transport minister said that Boeing was trying to divert the attention to pilot error in order to fend off B767 problems...So why do they even bother buying Boeing airplanes? Not only they have one more B767 in their fleet, but also 747s and 777s....The B767 having had only 1 fatal accident due to mechanical problem (Lauda, Etophian being hijacked...), proves that it is one of the safest plane in the sky. Why are the Egyptians so sensitive to the suicide theory? I am coming from a Muslim country too (probably one which is less strict tough---Turkey) and I am wordering if we would have been more offended by a pilot suicide or a mechanical problem potentially related to the airline's level of maintenance.....and by the way conspiracy theories about Israelis and Americans arranging the crash are absolutely groundless and a real shame for the Egyptians....What do you guys think?

At this point anything is possible. Boeing, the US, nor Egypt should start pointing the fingers at people yet. The 767 has been around for how long? and had how many problems? The Egyptian is alrady saying there is no sign of it being the aircraft and investigators here are saying the same. You can ask any US Armed forces officer who builds the best planes in the world, and 8-10 they will say it is Boeing.

This is a very sensitive subject. No one wants to step on one anothers toes if you know what I mean. I have to say though it looks more and more like one of the pilots (The relief pilot) had something to do with the bird going down. Think of the scandal Egypt Air would have if one of its pilots did something like that. Talk about empty planes flying across the ocean. Look how the Silk Air crash has been covered up.
