Jet makers avoid risk by redoing old models
from The New York Times
After a decade of pushing hard on the edge of technology, Boeing and Airbus are turning more cautious in building new jetliners. Boeing's announcement last week that it had begun pitching airlines on an enhanced version of its 777 jet, rather than a whole new plane, underscores how the aerospace industry is pulling back from the risky bets that have led to costly, and humbling, delays on other planes, like Boeing's 787 Dreamliner.
