"Boeing digital" except when they are desperately trying to keep everything feeling analog and old school in the cockpits so that the aircraft can be type certified instead of classed as a new aircraft. No high tech displays or fly by wire technologies for Boeing. That would be modern and require pilots to be retrained. High tech testing, low tech instrumentation and flight controls - that's the way to go. What could possibly go wrong?
