Al Jazeera pulls the wings off Boeing's 787 to reveal the "new Boeing" where profit comes first, even at the expense of quality.
There was a time when "Boeing" meant the essence of quality. From the B-17 to the B-52, and the magnificent history of the "7" series - 707, 737, 747, 757 and 767. And then something changed and it began in Boeing's corporate culture.
The company built on its quality, Washington state workforce, turned on its workers, beat up their union and the State government. Boeing decided to outsource assembly work to the Third World, a.k.a. Charleston, South Carolina.
Ordinarily I wouldn't post a documentary this long but, on watching it, the reality sank in that this is the face of today's corporate culture and we all need to be aware of that. As for me, I've pretty much given up commercial flying but if I do have to travel, it sure as hell won't be on a Boeing 787.
