What's possible, what's feasible, and what's profitable all must be weighed together against what's safe for the flying public - and Boeing may have weighed incorrectly in regard to this particular model plane.

Bad judgment call, there, IMNSHO.

The thread seems to indicate that Boeing made a lot of practical business decisions to maximize profit.

If I were considering new planes, I would ponder long and hard about how this happened. In the end I might decide that purchasing any aircraft built by any U.S. based company is a high risk proposition. In other words it is not a managment problem, rather the enviroment that managment is required to work within.

If enough make this choice the tasks that Boeing faces will become much more difficult. Depending on debt, maybe impossible.
