Complex Made Simple

Boeing 737 may get total makeover

Jim McNerney, chief executive of Boeing has said the plane maker is leaning towards redesigning its 737 narrow-body jetliner rather than simply putting on more efficient engines, Reuters has reported. A decision on the future of Boeing's best selling plane is expected by the end of the year, McNerney told reporters on the eve of the Paris Air Show. "We're leaning towards a new plane, but the two possibilities are still under consideration," McNerney told Le Monde newspaper.
