    I am not a lawyer. My crystal ball : Ultimately this company will file for chapter 11. It will be declared to be "Too big to fail" A player to be named later will step up to the plate.

    This CEO character must stay in his position until such time the criminal course makes its way thru. This code of business conduct is criminal to the extent 340+ times manslaughter with clear evidence of incompetence, mismanagement, negligence and greediness that has left 350 families in distress and huge losses, apart from the countries who have lost businesses purely due Boeing's money over human lives, and FAA is no saint in this scenario, the body whom the people & businesses trust has clearly in the wrong doing which has contributed to loss of lives.

    After having 170+ episodes of the TV series "Mayday Air Crash Investigation" and all of the "Engineering Disasters" episodes, and many many articles on the 737 Max crash, I need to point out a few things that knee-jerk-reaction people are ignoring:

    1. In the US, if an individual (accidentally or not) kills someone, this is a criminal case and the perpetrator can be prosecuted and go to jail.
    However, if a corporation does this because of a faulty design, it is a civil case and only fines can be levied. This is sad but true.
    As a side note, in Germany, individuals in a company can go to jail. However, companies can stonewall investigation efforts and make prosecution difficult or impossible. Look at how many German VW engineers went to jail in the Dieselgate scandal — hint .. 0.

    2. Boeing's CEO has been prepped and coached by its team of lawyers as to what he can/cannot say as to not legally expose Boeing to more liability/lawsuits. Unfortunately this means there can't be any admission of fault — only sympathy phrases. Blame the lawyers and our legal system — not the CEO.

    3. Almost all airplane crashes are due to chain of events/circumstances which culminate in a disaster. Remember Apollo 13, Space Shuttles Challenger and Columbia, USS Indianapolis, Exxon Valdez, Chernobyl, etc. etc.. Let's not "jump the gun" w/ regard to the 737 Max's MCAS system although I do admit I am already 99% sure Boeing is at fault. The NTSB has to complete its investigation which may take years. Then we can assign 100% blame to Boeing.

    4. Some people are saying Airbus planes are safer. I seriously doubt this. Although both Boeing and Airbus designs are "fly-by-wire" designs, both operating philosophies are vastly different. I feel Boeing's control yoke design is inherently safer than Airbus' sidestick controls for one simple reason — you can "feel" what the other pilot is doing. In a Boeing plane, if the pilot is turning left, the copilot can both visually and tactically feel the yoke more in that direction. In the exact same situation in an Airbus, neither visual or tactile clues are available — the pilot and copilot must TALK to each other. In a high-stress situation like the Air France 447 flight and others mind you, this has caused several crashes and the deaths of many hundreds.
    Imagine if in a firefighter ladder truck the front and rear driver couldn't communicate with each other verbally .. how well would that work out? The Boeing design is like a truck where both drivers used voice/radio. The Airbus design is like both drivers relied on blinking lights to communicate — yes it would work, but it isn't great.

    5. The real problem today is pilot vs plane. Let me explain.
    Today's planes are so automated that pilots have become more "flight managers" or "coaches" so to speak. Using the basketball analogy, it's as if you as a player then becomes a coach. Undoubtedly your basketball skills would suffer. This is what is happening in today's cockpits. Pilots use so much automation that when an emergency situation develops they mishandle the plane. Or a related problem is that pilots don't fully understand the plane's automation. Look at China Air 140 or Asiana 214.

    Boeing takes passenger safety very seriously! At Boeing, no expense or effort is spared to make certain that the compensation of Boeing senior management is kept safe from the families of dead passengers.

    If Boeing were China's company, their CFO will be kidnapped by USA to remedy the situation

    The CEO was responsible for the deaths of 346 people and possibly the loss of thousands of jobs. Give him the option of life in prison or hari kiri. These corporate pigs need some consequences for their irresponsible behavior.

    Even if Ethiopia or Indonesian court finds the CEO responsible of murder,they have to deal with the strongest army in the world to arrest him.

    This Boeing CEO has the audacity to indirectly blame the pilots as some idiots did in the social media after the accidents happened. He does not accept the fact that 737 max's inherent defect and malfunctioning MCAS is the cause of the death of 350 passengers. This is a crime because these ceo guys and ignorant CFOs push the engineers into allowing planes with potential issues to fly for profit, ignoring safety. These managers have become over confident, complacent and incompetent after producing the most safe 777/747. Now their focus is profits compromising safety. Greedy pigs. Members of congress should grill this CEO/CFO and kick him out of Boeing.

    If the CEO's head doesn't go the chopping block, you can be sure CEOs everywhere will play the spin game of blaming everybody and everything else possible when they screw up.

    The CEO is responsible and he has got to go! If he had any character, he would resign.

    Dispite the fact that the 737 max aircraft has killed over 300 people so far, Boeing's CEO claims that aircraft is safe. I claim that is insanity and that CEO has got to go.

    It's surprising this liar's pants didn't burst into flame duing the meeting. The part where he ran away from questions about the 346 dead at the end isn't included. Check this out: @t

    the whole plane should be restructured, instead of just correcting the software.
