Although Boeing states challenges over setting up a robust production system as one of the major reasons for opting for a re-engined 737 over an all-new New Small Airplane, Boeing CEO Jim McNerney says there was a growing body of 'broad support' from airlines for an aircraft that can delivery "more efficiency today versus more efficiency tomorrow. Our view of the markeptplace changed over the last three months, I'd say. We also validated that the re-engined (737) could deliver the sort of numbers (that the market wants). The technical risk moved to the right and the market sort of moved to the left, if I may."Boeing CFO James Bell also notes that research and development costs are set to decrease in 2012 as the company ramps down from 787 and 747-8, and as the focus shifts to a re-engined 737 rather than an all new NSA. The research costs associated with the re-engined option are roughly 10-15% of an NSA.
