Jim Albaugh, commercial airplanes chief at Boeing, said that the company has briefed airlines on its plans and they don't immediately need an answer on its successor for the 737. "If you're holding your breath for the Paris Air Show, I'm not going to say we're not going to make an announcement, but I'd be very surprised if we did," Albaugh said, referring to the industry event in June. Boeing executives said they are considering designing a new single-aisle plane but are also interested in making changes to the existing 737 design.
