I know that we may have to wait until 2020 for the Y-1, but I was wondering, could Boeing use the working together concept again for the Y-1? The 777 is one of the most sucessful airliners ever built, and I believe that the working together concept had a big part in that. I believe that a lot of 737s and 757s operater around world, would be glad to work together with Boeing on designing a replacement for the 737 and 757. I could see WN as a big player in this project, also Ryan Air, AA, DL and the list goes on. I fell Boeing should try this again, because it worked the first time.

They absolutely *could*...whether they actually do is a different question, but I don't see any reason why they wouldn't.

Yes they will, it's not a question of maybe or follow through. This is how they lock in the initial sales... there is a direct pay off. And they have always done this (since the 707 days) to ensure the product meets the customers needs... only recently have they gotten publicity mileage out of the practice

Yes some customer requirements are off the wall .. look at the A380 outfitting snafu from trying to provide too many custom options. Customers have complained about too many variables because it slows production and makes resale more difficult so they push for standardization. and customers with big fleets needing replacement carry a lot of weight.
