Re: Boeing 737 replacement, back on the table in summer 2019?

So, Airbus has the backlog sold 7 years from now one; Boeing the same to, and we dream to see a new airframe from 2020?
Maybe like from 2023 or 2025.
Not to forget in what "shithole" is at this time B with the 737 problems, and 787 accounting!
They function as a Pobeda Russian watch!
