  1. – The Scimitar looks awesome (I know it’s to save gas but it does look great)
    – The engines look great with the same aggressive looking teeth at the back as the 787 (I know it’s for noise suppression, not just good looks)
    From a trusted/safe plane maker that is an amazing brand name. it didn’t suffer the Ford/GM/Chrysler dark ages of the 1980 when the Hondas and Toyotas of this world arrived
    …BUT…
    We have yet to hear those engines
    I’m not sure about the nose, starting to look dated
    Is it the paint scheme or does it look small? I kept thinking to myself that the 737 was way bigger than the CSeries but these pictures make it look somewhere “same sized”. Maybe just the paint scheme
    It’s cool in one way that this design has lasted so long. But, on the other hand, I think the 1960 designers probably would’ve hoped for flying cars over having their design still fly in 2015. If you told them back in 1960 that it would still be flying mostly with their same design they’d probably be very proud for 30 seconds and then would probably grow concerned and ask “but wait, what happened, you mean, we’ll still be flying the same design, was there some nuclear winter and all progress came to a halt?!?”. I’m kinda thinking that right now.
    Sorry if my last line sounds depressing. I do wish the 737 all the best. Having worked for Boeing in Renton (IT), Boeing and the 737 will always have a special place in my heart 🙂
