Calhoun is correct to have regrets over his prior statements, which were damaging to the company and potentially provided ammunition for those suing Boeing, as it implied that the company was motivated by profits to cut corners. Coming from someone with ten years on the Boeing Board of Directors, this is likely to result in increased rather than decreased scrutiny on the development of the 737 MAX and leadership directives to cut costs. With an on-going federal investigation underway, this is exactly what Boeing doesn’t need today, as it exacerbates their legal difficulties.
