Re: Boeing CEO: NMA will "start with a clean sheet of paper again"

The one thing which is certain is: during the last 12-13 years, Boeing has been very risk adverse when it comes to new airliner designs. I am not sure if this lack of innovation was a result of of the McDonnell Douglas Merger, or something else externally in terms of America and Boeing’s struggles ...
