    Boeing is as noted one of the largest defense contractors on Earth which I reckon insulates them somewhat from these other issues

    Not defending Boeing mind, just explaining why it can weather these issues with relative ease

    thank you for your reply padraig.

    i kinda assumed that designing and introducing a new airplane type that turns out to have so many flaws would be deadly for a company like that. maybe i was therefor hoping for more exciting explanations. i think for example, the united states would never let it go bankrupt right?

    We can invent more exciting explanations. They might even turn out to be true.

    It's a tool of the US state. An arm of the CIA or whatever. That's the obvious move.

    It sounds like Bill Burr's joke about randomly sinking cruise ships in an effort to combat overpopulation.
