American Airlines’ pilots union has hit out at Boeing for insinuating that the pilots in two fatal crashes involving Boeing aircraft were to some extent responsible for the planes going down.
The association said this insinuation by Boeing was “inexcusable” and that it’s “a poisoned, diseased philosophy.”
Dennis Tajer, a spokesman for the Allied Pilots Association, accused Boeing of unfairly blaming foreign pilots involved in the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes
.. They had wired that thing so that it was irrecoverable. It just blew us away,” Tajer said.
