The Airbus A321 NEO is superior to Boeings 737 designs because if offers quicker boarding and deplaning aloing with greater width for passenger seats in a 6 abreast narrowbody cabin.

Boeing's lead is over with the 737 MAX for any other incarnations.

For what ever reason or shortcomings of Boeing's Executive ruling committee regarding 737 design, marketing, and sales...

the free market is clearly ordering more A320 / 321 NEO's. Air India's 4 wheel main landing gears sure would look nice on the A 321 and might help distribute weight more effectively.

Photo and info on 4 wheel main landing gear. I do not think Boeings MAX design is flexible enough to include these changes, inexpensively and easy like Airbus's present design.

Anyone remember the DC 10 - 30 and L1011. Lockheed had to shrink their product due to weight distribution to match the DC - 10 - 30s longer range product. DC 10 was designed with room for the extra landing gear early on unlike McDonnell Douglas. Hmmm, those that don't study history are condemned to repeat it.

MAX looking dated

737 MAX is looking decidedly dated as compared to the A321.

Is Boeing doing anything to urge airlines to accept mid cabin lavs, galleys, and entry doors in their new 737 MAX cabin design. Boeings brand is starting to be damaged by excessive cheapness in terms of pax comfort.

"Not Boeing not going" used to be a motto, but increasingly due to airlines B R A N D destruction of the 737 Series over the years passengers, are just as happy to be on an Embraer 170/190 airliners and even a C Series in the future.
