They only deliver two pax plane products (737MAX and 787), both have been grounded multiple times, and IINM they both hold the narrowbody and widebody records for grounding, as well as the former with the all-time grounding record for a plane returned to service.
This company needs to be gutted and and cleaned out on EVERY executive and supervisory level.
What about 779, 748, 738, 739? There are also military planes. There are a lot more products than 737MAX and 787.
The military versions of the 738 and 739 fall under the 737 program. The 748 has wound down and the 779 isn't delivering yet. The 773ER is either done delivering or just about. The statement is functionally accurate that Boeing is down to two aircraft lines and both have had multiple issues and groundings related to shoody quality control, design issues etc.
For those of us old enough to remember Boeing as it used to be, it was an engineering/aeronautical company. They set the bar in the aviation world and are a big reason air travel is where it is today. Unfortunately, they replaced engineers with MBAs who were looking to cut corners any way they could and maximize shareholder returns (and exec pay) at the cost of quality. The results were predictable.
