    How can these officers take this level compensation when all this confusion and an almost fatal APU power supply failed because of the power source: lithium batteries. At the minimum this appears awful.

    Well that is a lot of money and what about the battery problems, does that not count in establishing his compensation?

    What % increase did his workers get? Is it any wonder that the wealth gap continues to widen when people with the power continue to larger and larger pieces of the pie? Where do YOU think this will lead to?

    Thanks Jim. Deeply appreciate your cutting the Pension benefit for future employee's while claiming a multi-million dollar prize for yourself. Nice job getting out front of the cost per day for the 787 battery debacle; the chairman of Toyota wonders where you lost the plot in his "CEO Takes Responsibility and doesn't shuffle it off to his employee's to explain" lesson. What Hubris!

    Hey Jim,

     

    Do you really feel you earned this salary? The fiasco with the battery was enough to disqualify you for a raise and the delays of bringing this ship to fruition was horrendous. Now Boeing is not even taking responsibility for the battery issue and is pointing the finger at the FAA.

     

    What gall. You are a disgrace as a human, if you do not change this misdeed.
