“Eye On Travel” Host Peter Greenberg on the Max 737: “Boeing is a victim of its own arrogance”

Workers walk past a Boeing Co. sign as they leave the factory where the company's 737 Max airplanes are built, Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019, in Renton, Wash. As Boeing prepares to shutter much of the huge factory near Seattle that builds the grounded 737 Max jet, the economic hit is reverberating across the United States. The 737 Max, which analysts say is the largest manufactured product exported from the U.S., was grounded worldwide in March 2019 after the second of two deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed a total of 346 people, and on Monday, Dec. 16, 2019, Boeing announced that it would halt Max production in January 2020 with no date for it to resume.

WGN Radio “Eye On Travel” Host Peter Greenberg joins John Williams to talk about the major underlying issues that caused the Boeing 737 Max crashes last year. But he remains optimistic that the model will fly safely when its operation resumes.
