Boeing NLA

The Boeing NLA, or New Large Airplane, was a 1990s concept for an all-new airliner in the 500+ seat market, with 4 engines.[1] Somewhat larger than the 747, this aircraft was similar in concept to the McDonnell Douglas MD-12 and later Airbus A380. In 1993, Boeing chose not to pursue development of this concept, focusing instead on updates to the 747.
