SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Tuesday it sees no impact on its plans to increase production of 737 jetliners to 57 a month because of fleet changes United Continental Holdings UAL.N announced earlier in the day.

United’s orders for 61 Boeing 737-700 jetliners “will switch over to MAXs on the order book when (the order is) finalized,” Boeing spokesman Doug Alder told Reuters in an email, referring to the newer 737 MAX jetliner that United plans to buy.
