Boeing CEO concedes ‘mistake’ with planes in 2 fatal crashes

June 16, 2019

PARIS (AP) — The chief executive of Boeing said the company made a “mistake” in handling a problematic cockpit warning system in its 737 Max jets before two crashes of the top-selling plane killed 346 people, and he promised transparency as the U.S. aircraft maker tries to get the grounded model back in flight.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg told reporters in Paris that Boeing’s communication with regulators, customers and the public “was not consistent. And that’s unacceptable.”

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has faulted Boeing for not telling regulators for more than year that a safety indicator in the Max cockpit didn’t work.

Pilots are angry the company didn’t tell them about the new software that’s been implicated in the crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

9. He needs to go now

Every new airplane introduced under his tenure (787, 737) has had major problems. Individually each one can be explained, but collectively something is fucked up at Boeing and he's the one responsible.

In addition the way the company has handled the Max has been horrible.
