Let's all ignore the elephant in the corner of the room that wants to talk about why such changes were needed in the first place.
As I've written before, this "blinders on, all speed ahead" strategy Boeing (and its tightly coupled appendage, FAA) is following does get to the goal line the fastest, but is risky as hell.
Yet, so far, it seems no one is willing to get in front of the steamroller and yell "stop!"...
Well the large elephant in the room is the US Congress, the FAA is a Federal body, congress had to approve their out-sourcing.
Heaven forbid but I only see them making serious changes to the oversight situation if another disaster happens with similar conditions like MCAS.
Yes there are Boeing supporters and haters on the Hill - despite popular belief - and the detractors will not willingly assist Boeing resolving this issue, unfortunately, fair play being what it is, they will have to produce more evidence of malfeasance which will be a double edge sword.
If we take some of the rhetoric we hear, how can we allow any newly built a/c to fly that is produced by management that is deemed criminal?
The 737 / 787 / 777 produced years ago under old management does not have to be the same as produced today, were short cuts taken, safety compromised, pax and pilots put at risk etc etc etc.
I am hoping that the details of the 23rd May meeting are released so we can get more concrete info and move away from all the flame bait and piling on.
