    Strange? Why would any airline say that they would use inferior parts?

    Inferior to what?

    Are they idiots?

    Genuine Boeing parts. Maybe they found out they've been using spare parts from China?

    Usual fear-mongering during management-labor dust-ups...
    I don't give it much attention when contracts are in negotiation...

    Ironically the Chinese are in the used airliner parts business! They have set up plants that buys old airliners and sells the parts world wide. I wonder were these parts will show up?

    But don't worry we can trust the Chinese to sell really good used parts!

    As the song goes "Don't Worry Be Happy". One article mentions Mary Shiavio's tenure as DOT Inspector General. It was under her watch that the FAA did actually catch counterfeit parts heading for maintenance on Air Force One. While there is a lot of worrying information here I think the American Airlines article has some Labor/Management problems as an undercurrent. Did President Trump place high tariffs on the Chinese parts. That may be the answer. Kills the whole idea of saving money.

    What's sad, the stuff is going on regardless and the regulator is just staring at their computers in their cubes.

    Oh for goodness sake. I read this article and could only shake my head in exasperation. Faulty wing parts??? What is one of the main components that keeps the plane in the air? Wings, the last time I checked. This whole thing is getting way out of hand in my opinion. :mad::eek:
    Rotorruss is right, the swamp has to be drained, and the door HAS to be locked to keep these fools out. :mad:

    I heard this news yesterday morning and it was an "Oh No" moment for me. If the MAX wasn't be investigated would these faulty parts have been discovered or would we have had to wait for a failure somewhere down the road. The regulator is totally incompetent and the way of doing things HAS to change before we do start having accidents here in the U.S. that will wake people up.

    The swamp has to be drained! The "Good Ole' Boys" club and the chummy relationships between the regulator, manufacturer and the airlines has to be broken up.

    Lastly I look at my "Boeing" gear in my closet and can only feel sadness that a logo a proudly wore as my admiration for a once great company is now misplaced. That company doesn't exist any more and it's reputation in now permanently tarnished not only in the public 's mind but mine as well.

    It amazes me that upper management cuts corners to save money only to have it backfire and the costs go up considerably. I thought they would learn their lesson with the 787 Certification and battery problems and now the MAX!......?

    The difference is 346 people died and that has to be accounted for:mad:

    It looks like the MAX won’t be in the air for another few months as the FAA cautiously, slowly, carefully considers what to do. next!

    It painfully obvious that the MAX should have been a new certification instead of trying to save money and approve the changes with Supplemental Type Certificates......STC’s. It would be cheaper but when all the smoke clears the cost to Boeing will be near 3 BILLION dollars.

    The loss of life and company credibility can not be replaced.

    So what should be done? Who’s fault is this mess!?

    We know......inept management.

    Let the whistleblowers come forward.......................

    BTW who in the FAA approved the RUBBER STAMP CERTIFICATION?

    Does he think about the 346 people killed and the thousands of family members effected?

    I have to say, this whole mess reminds me of the inept management and dirtbag, minions I had to deal with when I was in the FAA. They contributed to the deaths caused by air crashes that could have been prevented.
