November 7, 1995 NEWS DIGEST ... 3. REUTER (Nov. 6) - Boeing is in talks with a number of its customers to investigate the market potential of a longer range, stretched version of its successful 747-400 aircraft, president Ron Woodard said. At a news conference in Amsterdam to sign a previously announced order for eight new 737-800 aircraft with Dutch airline Transavia, Woodard said Boeing aims to discover what the market is looking for in a revamped 747. "We're talking to a bunch of customers about what happens with this aircraft, and at this early stage it's clear there is some demand for a longer range 747. We would have to make this aircraft competitive with today's 747-400 series, so we've allocated people to look into this."
