If i did lead boeing, i would have looked into the possibility of reopening the B717 production line and pherhaps develop it another stage to make it more attractive to custommers. 

 

I would also have re-Opened the Boeing 757 Production lines, and ordered the start of a -400 series development which could make the type more attractive than what it aleready is, Most likely i would also have been focusing more on the B747 programme in order to make it better and more attractive for airlines which would consider the B777/B787 :P

 

But this is only some of the thoughts that i have... :P

Close 787 production line, offer 777s,

Close 748 line,

 

Because everyone likes throwing billions of dollars of research and development away without even trying to make a profit (the 787 will, 748 will be close.)

Develop a completely new jet series, with the base model at around 199 seats. A stretched model of 220-230 seats could replace 757.

 

Increase 788, 789 and 7810 production. Investigate offering 788LR as a long range jet capable of Sydney to London, Singapore to New York, etc.

 

Continue offering 763s as a cheaper alternative to 787s.

 

748 line maintained open.

 

Aim to completely replace 777 with new single decked very wide bodied aircraft by 2030.

I would open the 717 line back up. ( I love that plane very much)

 

Kill Airbus by making a triple level jet liner

 

Make a more efficient 707

 

Make a new series of a plane called the Boeing 797 series. Which is basically a set of 50 to 100 seat planes with a range of 2,000nm.

If I lead Boeing then I will do the following:

 

  •  Start a new research into a more energy efficient aircraft which is made from composite materials and dub it as 797-FGE  (Future generation efficiency) and offering around  380 passengers and a long range. The aim is to use the same amount of fuel as a 737 but with extra passengers, it will be more efficient.  
  • Focus on making a 737 that is halve the cost of a A320 with better specs. More airlines will be interested in the price tag. The 737 will have around 180 passengers and a range of around 4500 miles (low cost transatlantic routes)  and make it 50% more fuel efficient than the current 737's.
  • Focus on a new 747 that has a passenger capacity of 880+ called the 747-EP with lengthen fuselage and new wings and a seating configuration of     4-4-4  instead of the 3-4-3.
  • Focus on the 787
  • Bring back the 717 with all new wings, new state of the art cockpit, new efficient engines and a brand new interior and a more modern look to compete with bombardier CRJ series.
  • Lastly, research for a new supersonic aircraft.
