Thank you for your insight, integrity, and honesty.
Btw an acquaintance (non flying background) offered his (IT development basis) assessment of BA's statements regarding the 737 8200/MCAS solutions.
"I find it awkward that Boeing didn't commit to a date yet for the fix. I've been working in IT deliverables for over 25 years and my experience tell me that upper management is almost never aware of the reality of the status of a given project. We should know within 2 weeks if they'll be ready. In my mind, I give them until September 30th. The reason I don't believe they'll make it is that they came up with this date in June before other bugs we're found and they are adding work to a schedule already impossible to meet. IMO, it will be delayed and if (IF) I'm right, it should be announced before the first week of September, at the latest."
