Boeing must have spent most of the R&D money bribing the Air Force and payoffs to rig sealed bids.

4th delay announcement, clients have no delivery schedules. It was supposed to be delivered next month and now they're targeting late 2009.

Anyone know of specific problems they are having now? Before they were waiting on some small components

A US Air flight through O'Hare?

That does not make any sense. Perhaps you meant a United Airlines flight through O'Hare? Or maybe American?

You can book through USAirways but flights are operated by United.

Having just flown through O'Hare I can say any flight through O'Hare is delayed.

That's how it appeared to me.

Bwahahahaha. That worked out so well for them, too.

"Dr. Stone, what is your impression of Mr. Stryker?

"I'm sorry I don't do impressions. My training is in psychiatry."

"Of course."

I quickly passed through security and had no problems last time I flew out of O'hare.

/carried only a backpack

And this is the company that thinks the AF should drop everything and give dump a contract in their laps.

The only redeeming quality of O'Hare is the Gaslight Club in the basement of the Hilton.

You carrying only a backpack wouldn't have much of an affect on the on-time rates of airplanes into and out of O'Hare.

Other than that your comment was interesting and germane.

Weren't the 707 and the 747 delayed, too? It takes more time than you think to stretch that technological envelope!

"Boeing must have spent most of the R&D money bribing the Air Force and payoffs to rig sealed bids."

First off, THIS. Many times.

Second, as an Alabamian who's ready for EADS/Northrop to start on their Air Force tanker construction, I'm really getting a kick out of this. Boeing is going around saying they're the only company capable of building the new tanker, and they can't even get their new baby off the ground.

The irony, it is tasty.

Ramen, Brother Man...

Boeing is a big bloated government leech that is finally being forced to compete for the first time since before it merged with McDonnell Douglas

Time for it to shift its fat, and for that matter the US government should break up Boeing like they did Ma Bell.
