Re: Airbus' track record on what happens when someone reports a technical risk
a) Mangan was not an Airbus engineer. He was an engineer for an Airbus supplier.
b) Whistleblowers are often threatened with jail. It's not specific to either Airbus or his direct employer.
c) Boeing has done the same with engineers at their Washington plants who blew the whistle, so by that standard, flying Boeing won't be safe either.
d) Same sh**, different company. Airliners are still the safest mode of transport per passenger transported.
