Boeing plans to bring out a new minor model of its best-selling 737 passenger jet with extra seats, the head of its planemaking division said, stepping up efforts to woo low-cost carriers in competition with Europe’s Airbus. Announcing the move on the eve of the Farnborough Airshow, the head of the U.S. planemaker’s jetliner branch said on Sunday the 200-seat variant would be five percent cheaper to operate. Boeing Commercial Airplanes Chief Executive Ray Conner said, It will be certified to hold 200 passengers which is 11 more than the maximum allowed in the most popular version of the 737.
