Indeed an interesting read! And not surprised to read that shareholders and making money have become more important than building the best planes possible… Unfortunately in a way the ‘users’ are guilty as well, as they want to fly for the cheapest price possible. So maybe these accidents will also turn around the way people look at aviation and are aware that buying cheap tickets could eventually end up in more dangerous travel… I truly hope that companies like Boeing will turn around their way of working and start working on best engineered planes instead of cutting back on that based on shareholders pushing them to the limit of building the cheapest plane possible… As buying cheap will bring only bigger cost in the end!
