The man who grounded the Dreamliner for 123 days says FAA should stop Boeing’s 737 MAX from flying

“Ray LaHood, the former US Secretary of Transportation from 2009 to 2013, says Boeing should ground its 737 MAX 8, pending a full investigation”

Too bad both planes were ruined by outsourcing to India Inc.

You may or may not recall an article years ago which exposed how it was India’s HCL which caused most of the 787 project’s trouble, and how the FAA banned HCL from working on that project again.

“Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has emerged from its grounding a better aircraft, after it fixed its battery problem”.

Um… not really…..

“Seems like the worst PR year for Boeing is far from over. After the 737 MAX disasters and subsequent controversial facts arising how Boeing and the FAA approved the newest jet, today more problems have followed suit.

Singapore Airlines have announced that the airline is grounding two of their Boeing 787s because of engine issues. Singapore Airlines in total operate 9 787s with the Rolls-Royce Trent engines“.

Oh…. you mean the Rolls Royce which sent all its engine work to India…..
