The 737-10 would be one of the most idiotic moves Boeing will have done. Let's be realistic. They spend whatever amount to develop this model, have it lose out big to the A321neo (And even a possible A322), and then spend another amount in developing a comperable but more capable replacement 8-10 ye...
