In this thread, we shall discuss the news about this new project, with a first information hereunder:

Boeing returned to considering a metal fuselage for the Boeing 797 as an alternative to the ovoid-based composite design, due essentially to costs concerns.

Airbus is not planning to respond with a new aircraft should Boeing go ahead with a proposed middle of the market jet. Airbus may decide to further improve its A321neo instead.
