Re: Rebranding exercise

"I'm sure a responsible regulator like the FAA would be amenable to calling it something completely different to 737, but grandfathering in 737 type approval."

Wouldn't matter. What happened merely allowed the other agencies around the world to say out loud what everyone already knew.

EASA, CAA and CASA are not going to let the FAA mark their own homework anymore (although the Japanese might).

Boeing's scored itself a fine tooth comb inspection of the 737MAX testing procedure and microscopic oversight of the 777X tests which have caused _its_ costs to start ballooning virtually uncontrollably - and that's well before the reinspection of everything related to the 787 gets underway.
