Boeing beats Airbus in order race at Paris show

Aircraft Leasing Firms Lift Boeing's Dreamliner Higher at the Paris Air Show

With corporate offices in Chicago, Boeing supports airlines and USA and allied government customers in 150 countries and employs approximately 150,000 people across the United States and in more than 65 countries around the world.

The Irish low-priced carrier now has 110 unfilled orders with 100 options for the higher capacity 737 MAX 8, as well as 65 Next-Generation 737-800s.

"It is getting a big endorsement from airlines and that is leading to more lessors endorsing it too", Ihssane Mounir, Boeing vice president for sales and marketing, told reporters. The order was previously attributed to an unidentified customer.

Blue Air also reserved the right to buy another two such aircraft under the newly signed contract. Airbus, which has been talking with airlines for years about improvements to the aircraft to take advantage of the latest cost-saving technologies, slowed down production of the aircraft in 2016.

Less than 10% of the sales in Paris were for long-range twin aisle airliners and neither manufacturer unveiled deals for their largest aircraft, the superjumbo Airbus A380 and Boeing 747.

The forecast comprised a five percent boost for deliveries of single-aisle jet such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320, the cash cows of the world's two major aircraft makers.

"Many airports are running out of capacity and for those airports this is a flawless aircraft", said Indian-based budget airline SpiceJet's chairman, Ajay Singh, as his firm signed a provisional contract to acquire 40 MAX 10s.

The woman refused to stay in her seat and yelled about being treated unfairly by the government, several passengers said. When she moved towards the door, she was restrained by another passenger.

Regarding orders that Airbus could get over the rest of the show, Leahy added that such deals would be "nothing big, but real stuff" - an indirect reference to conversions from existing models that account for more than half of the orders announced so far for Boeing's newly launched 737 MAX 10.

Most of the orders were for smaller, single-aisle jets: Boeing's 737 and Airbus' A320neo.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history.

United Airlines stated a day following the launch of the 737 Max 10 that it would change 100 of its 737 Max orders with the newest version of its 737 workhorse.

The A321 is larger than any previous member of the 737 family, a gap that the MAX 10 is meant to close.

Such a cross-section will reduce the overall size of the jet at the cost of cutting the available cargo space below the passenger cabin.

Boeing announced orders and commitments for a total of 571 commercial aircraft, valued at $74.5bn at list prices, while Airbus booked $40bn in new business.
