Short cut

It looks as though penny pinching may be to blame on the part of Boeing. While minor upgrades to a model may be okay with only the issue of a bulletin, changing the engine type and altering the aerodynamics and flight characteristics should always require new type approval and relevant training. Also in this case it seems as though instrument redundancy has also been left out to save money. Boing should be held to account along with whoever allowed them to get away with taking shortcuts, whether it is the FAA or pressure from the administration.
