McDonnell Douglas was brought down by the machinists union and their refusal to allow cross training. I think after the sale to Boeing, they lost the same fight - that's why they tried to move out of California and Washington. As for being a defense contractor - that was always the profitable side. The commercial side was always in a fight with the government funded AirBus consortium.
