Boeing In Talks On Next New Fuel-efficient Plane

The Guardian

"Boeing threw down the gauntlet to its loss-making European rival Airbus yesterday, announcing that it was already in talks with airlines on developing a more fuel-efficient plane to replace its bestselling 737 single-aisle jet."

Sorry to be a bubble burster, but this is nothing new.

Well we've known Boeing has been in talks for some time with customers, so nothing really new to read, but thanks for the link.

Your welcome! If you read the article it talks about EIS of the 737RS in 2015 wich would put Y1 in front of Y3, something that wasn't 100% known.

I wonder how this plays out with EasyJet's.... odd.... release earlier this week.
I would, personally, love to see a Boeing UDF design.

At this rate Boeing will have the 737RS in service before the A350XXXWBNGRS (extra extra extra wide body next generation replacement study) gets off the drawing board! (joking of course).

If all goes well with the 787, and B can move ahead quickly with a 737 replacement, Boeing could really make a killing, maybe even more so than with the 787.

Airbus' only hope is to get the A380 out the door, get the A350 off paper ASAP, and start looking at a next gen narrowbody. If they fail to do that, only thing that will save them (other than some big loans) is some extraordinary new tech that will put them at a large tech advantage.

Airbus also already looking at the Next Gen NB - it's dubbed the NSR although, similar to the 737RS it's just a lot of wish lists from airlines and a few doodles on the back of envelopes!

Carson: Boeing won't replace 737 for at least seven years

"If we do a 10% improvement only, then we have to do another airplane right after that," Carson said. He said there's no point in rushing out a 737 replacement if the engine technology is not there.

Carson did mention in another article that it would be available in the middle of the next decade.

Is it to much to presume that available =EIS?
