The two crashes, suspected to be caused by faulty software and sensors, killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

"We remain open-minded to all input from customers and other stakeholders, but have no plans at this time to change the name of the 737 MAX". "If that means changing the brand to restore it, then we'll address that". Right now, Boeing is looking for the safe return of the aircraft to the skies for service.

Mr Muilenburg expressed confidence that the Boeing 737 MAX would be cleared to fly again later this year by United States and all other global regulators.

However, rebranding a plane because of a crash is an unprecedented step, according to many aviation experts.

Even aircraft that had high profile crashes such as the DC-10 or 727 did not change their names. They explained that airlines aren't going to view the plane any differently with a different name. "They're looking at the price on the ticket".

When it comes to autonomous passenger jets, safety is an obvious concern.

Pilot Dennis Tajer, a spokesman for the union that represents American Airlines pilot, the Allied Pilots Association, said it's good Muilenburg was willing to revisit the cockpit alert problem and to acknowledge Boeing mishandled conveying information.

The Paris Air Show typically features a multibillion-dollar competition for orders as Airbus and Boeing battle for supremacy, but this year is different. A grounded Boeing 737 MAX 8 passenger plane of the Norwegian low-priced airline Norwegian is parked at the tarmac at Vantaa airport in Vantaa near Helsinki, Finland on March 13, 2019.

Speaking on Sunday before the Paris Air Show, Muilenburg told reporters that Boeing engineers learned in 2017 that a warning light in the cockpit of its top-selling Max, created to alert pilots when the two angle-of-attack sensors disagreed, didn't work as intended.

Airbus stole the early thunder, announcing Monday morning its new A321XLR, which packs a range of 4,700 nautical miles - think Paris to Denver - and a 30% reduction in fuel burn, will debut in 2023.

Boeing executives took turns to apologize for the loss of life in two 737 MAX crashes and pledged to apply lessons of the crisis to future planes as the world's largest aerospace company struck a chastened tone at the opening of the Paris Airshow.

Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury expressed confidence that the stretch version of its A321LR will get certifications in the next four years.

He also announced that Boeing was raising its long-term forecast for global plane demand, notably amid sustained growth in Asia.

The Boeing stock was up 2.23 percent on Monday.
