Photos shared on social media show a new 737 MAX plane in Ryanair colours outside Boeing's manufacturing base in Renton,Washington, branding the name 737-8200.

The plane featured in the photo is one of 135 that Ryanair has on order.
Neither Ryanair nor Boeing has commented on nor confirmed the name change.
Further increasing suspicions that a name change is on the cards, when IAG signed a letter of intent for 200 of the controversial planes in June, there was no mention of the word "MAX" in the press conference.
The plane was simply referred to as "B737 aircraft."
