Farnborough 2014: Boeing chief talks A330neo, Ex-Im Bank and a new MAX

On the eve of the Farnborough Air Show in London, Boeing Commercial Airplanes chief Ray Conner announced a new high-density version of the forthcoming 737 MAX family, something long requested by leading 737 customer Ryanair.

He also talked down the threat from the expected announcement by Airbus Monday that it will launch an update of its A330 mid-size twinjet with new fuel-efficient engines.

And Conner flatly rejected any compromise in the current political controversy over the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
