reports that according to industry executives speaking Tuesday at the ISTAT (International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading) annual conference, The Boeing Company is marketing an all-new midrange commercial jet intended to fill the market range between the 737 and 787. United Continental Holdings CFO Andrew Levy said that the carrier was surprised to see that Boeing favors a twin-aisle design. Many customers had expected Boeing to opt for a single-aisle design for the concept, which Air Lease Corp. CEO Steven Udvar-Házy said that Boeing had named the 797. The plane would enter service in 2024 or 2025 if Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg decides to pursue development.
