    I remember Boeing’s motto was: We have a backup for a backup for a backup. Now from reading your websites and comments it looks like Boeing is saying: We have a backup for a backup and that’s enough. Have your policies changed because your aircrafts had such a good saftey records that now a backup for a backup is enough?
    Have you communicated that to the flying public?
    And finally, when engineers design and develop saftey features do they put a dollar amount on a perosn’s life? If yes how much?
    Thank you
