The news agencies are buzzing with stories that Boeing CEO gave the go-ahead for a new replacement for the 737.
This isn’t what we said and what he did say is not new. Do a Google News search to check out all the stories.
McNerney said Boeing prefers a new airplane, and it does; this isn’t new.
He said evaluation continues. This is true; R&D on a re-engine has not, repeat not, been discontinued. This is because no definitive decision has been made.
So slow down, everybody. This isn’t the launch of a new airplane at Boeing.
