Via the Drudge Report:

The National Labor Relations Board has dropped its controversial case against airline manufacturer Boeing, which had become a lightning rod for conservatives.

The labor board argued for much of the past year that Boeing decided to locate a new plant to build its new 787 Dreamliner jets in South Carolina, a right-to-work state, in retaliation for strikes by unionized workers at its existing facilities in Washington state.

But the panel appeared to bow to political pressure Friday, saying that a deal the company reached this month with the International Association of Machinists to build a different type of airliner, the 737 Max, in Washington satisfied its concerns.

Yes, the chin bump and longer retraction mechanism has been eliminated. The engine location has been moved slightly forward for better ground clearance. Other aerodynamic parts and the cockpit have also been refined.

Get an insider's peek into Boeing's Transonic Wind Tunnel testing lab, where technicians hover around a small scale replica of the Boeing 737 MAX. They're conducting tests on the MAX's new Advanced Technology winglet. The results of these high-accuracy tests will tell if the new winglet measures up to its desired effect.

Boeing Launches Higher Capacity 737 MAX Variant

Farnborough -- Boeing is to offer a higher capacity variant of the 737-8, a member of the new MAX family, to further improve seat-mile operating economics and increase competitiveness against the Airbus A320neo.

The minor model derivative will incorporate the mid-fuselage extra passenger exit door of the higher capacity 215-seat 737-9 to satisfy regulatory safety emergency evacuation requirements. The modification will give the new sub-model seating for up to 200, or around 11 more than the standard configuration of the 737-8. “It will have 5% better operating costs for a little less than a 1% dip on trip costs,” says Boeing Commercial Airplanes Vice Chairman and CEO, Ray Conner.

The variant, which at least for the moment is dubbed the 737-8MAX (to differentiate it from the original 737-MAX8 designation) will “take advantage of the extra 88 inches of space in the cabin,” says Conner referring to the longer internal dimensions of the 737-800/MAX -8 cabin compared to the A320. The decision was taken to offer the derivative at this relatively late stage in the MAX program because “we got a lot more comfortable with where we are, and as performance has continued to improve over the course of year. It was a matter of comfort and whether the customer base showed interest,” Conner adds.

The variant will become available after the three main 737 MAX models, the –7, -8 and -9, are developed and certificated. The current schedule calls for the 737-8 to be certified first in 2017, the -9 in 2018 and the -7 in 2019. The A320neo currently has 2,843 firm orders versus the 2,099 for the MAX.
