2019: BOEING 737 MAX 8

The whole story reminds me of the Volkswagen Diesel scandal:
the Engineers subjugated to Sales
Software Development subjugated to Sales
Quality Control (flight testing) subjugated to Sales
Customer Training subjugated to Sales

bottom line:

Sales subjugated to Shareholders,
346 
victims sofar,
the Head of Engineering should resign.

April 10 2019, latest news Chicago Tribune:

Shareholder Richard Seeks argues that Boeing should have told investors about safety problems with its best-selling plane after a fatal crash in October. Instead, it pushed the stock up to artificial highs by speaking optimistically about future sales before a second fatal crash in March sent shares tumbling, he says.”
