Comment: I like the 787 (Score 1) 180

I have a very good friend that worked for one of these sub-contractors in Rockford, IL. Heâ(TM)s a brilliant engineer. He told me about the enomous pressure Boeing put on them to complete their work by their deadline. Boeing constantly threatened the sub-contractor with fines. He spent many, many months working 70-80 hour weeks. Getting called into 2am meetings. Careers flamed out because of the stress. Substance abuse ran rampant. Families suffered. I hope no one gets hurt or killed flying on the 787. I hope the shareholders get handed a big bill to remedy the teething issues plaguing what was once a promising breakthrough design.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.

Working...
