Boe­ing chief grilled

Travel Daily - - News -

BOE­ING CEO Den­nis Muilen­burg has faced a bar­rage of ques­tions from a US Se­nate Com­merce Com­mit­tee re­gard­ing the com­pany’s cul­pa­bil­ity in two fa­tal crashes in­volv­ing its planes.

“We have made mis­takes, and we got some things wrong,” Muilen­burg con­ceded.

But Se­na­tor Richard Blu­men­thal lam­basted Muilen­berg, claim­ing the pi­lots and pas­sen­gers “never had a chance” as a re­sult of Boe­ing’s han­dling of its con­tro­ver­sial MCAS soft­ware.

“They were in fly­ing coffins,” Blu­men­thal claimed.
