Re: What changed in the paradigms of engineering ?
Isn't there the saying "you can pick any two from the menu - fast, cheap, good"
Boeing's tastes changed from 'fast and good' to 'fast and cheap'.
Maybe it's wishful thinking that they started off the 747NG successor as 'cheap and good' but the 320neo meant they needed to get their act together? But then incompetence and stock value centric thinking took over aka bean counters. I mean the CFO is taking over :D
The other thing, outside of boeing, is people have very short memories. Nobody will remember this in two years time. So the "damage" is just a few hundred (non-American) people dying is all...
