  1. @Steve – besides Embraer, it could be related to GOL also. They have 100+ on order, are the biggest Boeing customer in South America, and a major NG operator.

  2. I clicked on the link “Boeing using outsourced software programmers to fix the 737 MAX” above which links to a Bloomberg Article. OMG.

    It says: “Starting with the 787 Dreamliner, launched in 2004, it sought to increase profits by instead providing high-level specifications and then asking suppliers to design more parts themselves.” No wonder the batteries on the 787 were exploding.

    Further, Boeing fired its senior engineering staff and outsourced the work primarily to India due to cost concerns. A significant portion of the engineering for the 737 Max was done in India.

    Unbelievable. Everyone should read the article for themselves.

  3. That isn’t Kriss Kross… it’s House Of Pain. Song is Jump Around.
