Re: Something wrong with Boeing's safety culture?

Where is the pride? It isn't about 'pride', it is all about money. Look at US cars. The don't sell in europe because of price, they are actually cheap, very cheap. But they are designed to do the absolute minimum to safe costs. They use fuel like they don't care about future generations, they can't...

Airlines need to make decisions at the appropriate time for their future fleet requirements to ensure they get them ...
