are papering over the problem by rebranding the aircraft as the 737-8200 as 's new order shows.

Solving engineering and management fiascos by changing product names solves little.

@dredmorbius Hmm...While I'm not a huge fan of Boeing, that's not a fair or reasonable assessment, unless you are just looking to hate on Boeing. Name changes help solve a marketing and perception problem, albeit in a way I wouldn't recommend. I don't think its intended to be an engineering fix or even a management change.

@gedvondur Timing says a lot. Sale aand change occur whilst Boeing are still spinning the situation, and have royally fucked up.

@dredmorbius Hmmm...

Seems like the name change is for Ryanair, not Boeing and has been used before.

That being said, I hope Ryanair squeezed the living hell out of Boeing to ink this deal.
