‘Skewed and Inaccurate’: Boeing Strikes Back At New York Times for 787 Report

Earlier this week, Boeing released a statement to its employees in response to a New York Times article addressing safety concerns at the company’s 787 Dreamliner plant in South Carolina. The article published on Saturday shed light on complaints made by current and former employees of the North Charleston manufacturing facility concerning “defective manufacturing, debris left on planes, and pressure to not report violations.” Some claimed the company was creating a culture that “valued… ( 更多...

It may not be so much about the aircraft but how Boeing chose to communicate and handle the situation. Boeing is in the spotlight now - and that is of their own making. Until they start communicating in a fashion that communicates trust, safety, and respect this period of negative viewpoints may go on for some time.

The fact that the satellite had been operational for three years is probably relevant, but what fun is that.

Oh, wait, how about this. The space junk that plowed into the propellant tank was probably made by Boeing!

Oh, wait, sorry, let me try again... I'll get the hang of this eventually. The space junk that plowed into the propellant tank was totally for sure made by Boeing! Booooo! Hisssss!
