It’s what happens when the dream becomes the money… Boeing’s lost their way and only continue to exist and be as successful as they are because of their sheer size.

I think they can survive through this horror, but now they’ve learned the hard way that using the same airframe for many years to quickly sell units won’t do them any better, they really should change their business strategy. They’re lazy to invest into R&D and clean sheet design (which I believe is thanks to Airbus and NEO program), which is obviously very costly, but brand new planes = kinked out flaws from previous generations and improved aerodynamics and efficiency. But they still chose the easy way anyway.
