Why Boeing would make this
announcement on a Sunday is really questionable.
I guess you're implying that there's something they want to hide, but
making an announcement on Sunday means it's positioned for headlines on
[My impression is that when somebody wants to bury something, they have
their press-conference on Friday afternoon -- business news has less
impact on the weekend, and it's "old news" by Monday.]
Quite the opposite. Businessmen, the press, and the higher-ups
in the industry are wont to spend time with their families over a
weekend, and Sunday moreso than Saturday. Same pretty much goes for
those with an interesting in aviation and aerospace (airshows
notwithstanding). To pull something like this out on a day in which
they'd want to be with their families, or not in a position to get
there because of family is the questionable part.
If it were to be at the beginning of the business week, it
would make more sense to be positioned for headlines that day; that
morning, to be exact.. especially when the stock market opens. It also
gives the press a bit of something to race for, in who gets the story
out first; generates more press at that.
