Flew with a Captain years ago at a once great carrier that is no more. She said it best "The most expensive thing this company does, is save money."

The media just loves to cover Boeing and Airbus, and it's hilarious how anti and biased they are.

In the light of current events, bias is not an issue. Unless of course it is your own.

How is this article biased when it is just stating clear facts?
BobWysocki
I was just reading your past comments, you really like to show everyone how smart you are by degrading everyone's comments, who did you say you fly for, do you really have your wings or are they feather wings of a black bird, hey belzybob ? I wonder of Flightaware tolerates racist comments here ?
BobWysocki
stupid decisions lead to stupid results, their own fault for sourcing Chinese parts/components

WTHeck has Boeings fault got to do with China made parts? If you have a beef with China made parts, please take it to another forum.

Yes, Boeing's fault. Don't blame Chinese suppliers.
BobWysocki
I absolutely do blame Chinese suppliers always have been supplying sub standard parts - I worked for PW&C for 15 years and we saw this all the time out of 100 parts shipped 90 were scrapped maybe today it is 50/50 but still quality does not play a major issue with China - the green back does

Presumably you are of Polish extraction, so you can be excused for your stupid comments. The fault is in the company that accepted the parts, not the supplier. if a company has crap QA, that is the problem.
BobWysocki
do the planes you fly are old or do they have APUs ?
BobWysocki
what does my ethnicity have to do with this. QA 1st off inspection were the ones that scrapped these parts - as some parts were to spec in configuration but to material specs, you are a pilot ( so called commercial) did you not read my comment or were you driven by the fact that I am of Politics origin. The QA problem starts with China doing final inspection before parts are shipped.
BobWysocki
typo - Polish origin and not to material specs..

The companies in China do the inspections before parts are shipped, not China itself..eg Safran has an inhouse team which inspects it's shipments.. ALL it's shipments, from it's plants.
BobWysocki
Even landing gear parts for the 787 Dreamliner, had to scrap lots of shipments and that is just in the last few years

Safran hasn't had to scarp lots of parts from it's own China factory..smh.
