Wow lets hang two new engines on a 737-900 and call it a NEW aircraft...

You mean like the 737MAX? Boeing did the exact same thing once they saw how popular the A320neo was.

The way I read it "neo" stands for "new engine option", nowhere in the text do I see a claim that this is a new aircraft.

Second word in the news release "new" I guess I misread it Duh....
wopri
It says "new A320neo", and in fact the new engine option is new. The text then clearly mentions that this is not a new aircraft.

Airbus' new is implying it is a new product from Airbus. If you stick the same winglets the 737 has had for years I guess that make a copy new. Only in Europe... I think an improved version would of been more fitting...

So if Ford sends you an invitation to try out the new F 150 Ecoboost you think it's a new truck?

Yea guess your right John. I only have 2786.4 Hrs Have flown only 17 different types, single, multi engine. Not as many hours as some on this page but sure more than most.

Just to clarify - BOEING released the 737MAX after the A320neo. That's not to say there are not similarities, but honestly, how much difference can there be in an aircraft's shape. Besides, the 737 and A320 might look the same externally, but internally (in particular their controls) they are completely different.
