Trump offers advice to Boeing on 737 MAX planes: 'REBRAND', 'add additional great features'

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/15/trump-boeing-737-max-1274719

President Donald Trump on Monday suggested aviation giant Boeing ditch the designation for its crash-plagued 737 MAX planes and rename the aircraft once a critical software issue is fixed and the planes are able to fly again.

“What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name,” Trump wrote in a tweet. “No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know?”


The 737 MAX series planes were grounded worldwide last month after one of the planes crashed shortly after takeoff in Ethiopia, killing everyone on board and drawing comparisons to another deadly crash involving the same model in October.

3. Deflect from negative image

For example, see Altria formerly known as Philip Morris.

5. He tried to put his personal pilot in as head of the FAA, too.

The guy who got the candidate's plane grounded, because he didn't keep up with inspections for the jet.

7. In fairness. That's exactly what Boeing will do

American industry has a long long history of rebranding to cover up tragedies.

Just ask valujet
