In November 2016, Boeing announced that Ray Conner, 61 years old, would step down immediately and be replaced.[14] Kevin G. McAllister was named President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA).[13] McAllister is 53 years old and is a former executive at GE Aviation.[15][14] He had big sales successes after one year and has a pivotal choice to make on the next Boeing New Midsize Airplane.[16]

Model naming conventionEdit

For all models sold beginning with the Boeing 707 in 1957, Boeing's naming system for commercial airliners has taken the form of 7X7. All model designations from 707 through 787 have been assigned, leaving 797 as the only 7X7 model name not assigned to a product.

For model numbers in the 707 to 777 range, the model number consists of an airplane's model number, for example 707 or 747, followed by a dash and three digits that represent the series within the model, for example 707-320 or 747-400. In aviation circles, a more specific model designation is sometimes used where the last two digits of the series designator are replaced by the two digit, alpha-numeric Boeing customer code, for example 747-121, representing a 747-100 originally ordered by Pan American World Airways (Boeing customer code 21) or 737-7H4, representing a 737-700 originally ordered by Southwest Airlines (Boeing customer code H4). Unlike other models, the 787 uses a single digit to designate the series, for example 787-8. This convention was followed in the development of the newest version of the 747, the 747-8, along with the 737 MAX and 777X series.

Additional letters are sometimes appended to the model name as a suffix, including "ER" to designate an "extended range" version, such as the 777-300ER, or "LR" to designate a "long range" version, for example 777-200LR. Other suffix designators include "F" for "freighter" (747-400F), "C" for "convertible" aircraft that can be converted between a passenger and freighter configuration (727-100C) and "M" for "combi" aircraft that are configured to carry both passengers and freight at the same time (757-200M, 747-400M). Passenger aircraft that are originally manufactured as passenger aircraft and later converted to freighter configuration by Boeing carry the suffix "BCF" designating a Boeing converted freighter (747-400BCF).

Specialty and other aircraftEdit

Airlines commonly order aircraft with special features or options, but Boeing builds certain models specifically for a particular customer.

  • The Boeing 707-138B was a shortened-fuselage, long-range model only sold to Qantas.
  • The Boeing 757-200M was a single-example model built for Royal Nepal Airlines (now called Nepal Airlines). This plane could be converted between passenger and freighter configuration. It was launched by Royal Nepal Airlines in 1986 and delivered two years later.
  • Boeing 747
  • Boeing was a consultant to Sukhoi on the Russian Regional Jet program that subsequently became the Sukhoi Superjet 100 twin-engine narrowbody airliner.
