Gee, who would have thunk it, bunch of Wogs with higher standards than 'marican airlines who take anything Boeing manages to get airborne for delivery? Methinks there should only be one standard for airplanes, the very best one. Not what they can get when they can get away with when they compete in the Congressional and Senate bidding wars.

Everything I hear day by day makes me think Boeing deserves their current difficulties?
