Re: Yep

I'm not sure this is about Boeing wanting to save the money on getting the plane recertified as a new type. I mean everyone wants to save money but...

I think the real reason is to get sales to customers with existing 737 fleets. A 90 minute iPad based training course means no expensive pilot retraining is required. If that airline bought Airbus instead, it would be lots of expensive re-training - but then so would a new type not called the 737.
