It is standard practice at my old company to say everything is peachy until the last day when it is due. Then it is delayed. The worst is that every department does this on every little thing.
My main prediction is that this is a total disaster. We'll only hear about it in dribs and drabs. They are replacing things with the same recipe from 30 years ago, and that can't be done. They are ignoring physics, and trying to keep with the original seismic specs. None of that can be done.
But luckily, I'll never hear about it so it won't get me upset. The talking heads of the PR department will keep us amused.
