Re: Boeing CEO's Comments On Their Next Airplane

I’d love to see Boeing put the engineers back in charge. Maybe the accountants have been running the show for too long. There seems to be absolutely no vision at the company that I can see. I’ve flown Boeing’s best products for years and this era makes me pretty sad. Engineers building what enginee...
