Re: Guilt of job switch

Do not feel guilty about this for one minute. You worked in your current role for about 15 months. For an entry level position and a young person, this is exactly the time when folks start looking at other options. No one expected you to stay in the job for much longer than 15 months and if you did ...

Re: Will Boeing Follow Harley's Lead?

I believe Harley Davidson already has factories overseas so they are moving production to an existing facility. Boeing doesn't have final assembly factories in Europe or China so this would be a much more difficult task.

Besides, most 737's have aboutt 12 - 18 first class seats. It isn't really a Boeing or Airbus issue. It is the airline squeezing in more and more seats. It...
