Boeing CEO says taking fresh look at potential mid-market aircraft

CHICAGO, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Boeing Co is taking a fresh look at a potential new mid-market aircraft, Chief Executive Dave Calhoun said on Wednesday, putting the brakes on a project that became overshadowed by the fallout of the 737 MAX.

“Since the first clean sheet of paper was taken to it, things have changed a bit,” Calhoun told journalists in reference to the plane, codenamed NMA.

Separately, a Boeing spokesman said Calhoun had asked for a new market study on what kind of aircraft was needed in a new competitive playing field. (Reporting by Tracy Rucinski and Tim Hepher)
