Despite recent press reports, Boeing says "virtually no customers" are clamoring for a re-engined 737 model. "At some point in time, there will be a moment for a new airplane, a new production program, and we're working very hard to figure out when that might be," said Nicole Piasecki, vice president of Business Development and Strategic Integration at Boeing Commercial Airplanes, during an aviation conference on Wednesday. Meanwhile, a top Airbus executive said his company still intends to make a decision on re-engining by the end of the year. "We've gone through the business case. The issue right now is resources," he noted.
