Boeing says has no plans to change name of 737 max

PARIS, June 17 (Reuters) - Boeing Co said on Monday it had no plans to change the name of the 737 MAX after a news report that it would be prepared to do so to improve its future marketing.

“Our immediate focus is the safe return of the MAX to service and re-earning the trust of airlines and the traveling public,” a spokesman said in an emailed statement.

“We remain open-minded to all input from customers and other stakeholders, but have no plans at this time to change the name of the 737 MAX.”

CNBC reported earlier that a Boeing executive had said at the Paris Airshow it was ready to look at changing the name.
