That is a very irrational and emotional reaction. The current CEO made no decisions on the 737-MAX. That's all on Jim McNearney. All of it.
The current CEO can be blamed for questionable communication, looking like a deer in the headlights and having problems serving two masters - i.e. profit and engineering.
He can be easily replaced with a new Jim McNearney who has no problems picking a master and no qualms with using the latest MBA philosophies to create commercial airplanes.
My point it, firing the current Boeing CEO for the 737 MAX debacle is a pointless exercise, based on nothing but emotions and irrational thought. I'd love to be able to blame the man - but I can't. This isn't his fault, and firing him is as productive as kicking a wall. Emotional and irrational.
