The basic premise of the article isn't wrong. After the Boeing/McDoug merger things did start going south and the company started to lose it's way and it went in a hurry. I was living in Seattle then and everyone with an aviation eye/ear inside the Company and out could see it happening and I didn't even work for the Lazy B.
Once Corp. HQ left SEA it started going downhill even faster and everyone knew it, from the guys n gals on the line to the local eateries. Old Seattle saying, "When Boeing Sneezes, Seattle catches a cold". When Boeing left town, the city/county/state golden goose had left the nest and they had chased (taxed) it out thinking it would never leave.

Very interesting Frontline video you can access from the article. Recommend watching especially at around minute :35 when union rep for American Airlines and American Airlines captain Dennis Tajer speaks - he gets very emotional recounting what the Ethiopian pilots went through during their struggle against the MCAS.

Since the article is about Boeing killing 346 people, I am not surprised it didn't mention Airbus.
Boeing hired the prosecutor looking at the case and still paid out bonuses to execs.

Does this prosecutor looking at the case have a name?
