Boeing wins order dogfight at Paris Air Show

United Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 10

Both Boeing and Airbus have unveiled updated models of their planes at the 2017 Paris Air Show and shown very different focuses for the future.

Airbus, meanwhile, announced 326 orders worth almost United States dollars 40 billion.

With the Max 10, Boeing is hoping to stop the wave of customers defecting to Airbus A321neo which has received a significant number of orders since it was introduced three years ago.

Analysts expect jet orders at the Paris Air Show to decline despite its current positive years as airlines process a load of deliveries.

On the final business day of the Paris Air Show, Boeing emerged the clear victor over rival Airbus, thanks to sales of the 737 MAX.

"This wide market acceptance endorsed the 737 MAX 10 as the industry's most efficient and profitable single-aisle airplane", Boeing said in a statement.

He said Airbus still aims to deliver 200 A320neo planes despite some problems with one of the two engines available to clients.

Tropical moisture bringing risk of flooding across Ohio
Mayor Tim Kerner said Thursday that streets and yards in the town of Lafitte, south of New Orleans, are flooded. Those thunderstorms could cause isolated flash flooding, but forecasters say widespread flooding is unlikely.

"Airlines wanted a larger, better option in the large single-aisle segment with the operating advantages of the 737 MAX family", McAllister said.

Boeing is rolling out a dozen 787s per month off its assembly lines in Everett and North Charleston, S.C., and has said it would like to raise that rate to 14 jets per month by decade's end. United said it was converting 100 previously placed 737 orders to the Max 10, which is created to haul as many as 230 people on transcontinental flights of about 3,000 nautical miles.

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.

GECAS also converted an existing 737 order for 20 planes to the new model and Europe's largest tour operator TUI Group did likewise for 18 aircraft.

Earlier this week, the leasing company announced an order for an additional 30 787-9 Dreamliners. The A321 is larger than any previous member of the 737 family, an important gap in the minds of some airlines that the larger-capacity MAX 10 is meant to address. Iran is coming back from years under worldwide sanctions.

Boeing predicted demand for 920 cargo planes, down one per cent from its previous forecast. Airbus chief Fabrice Bregier said on Monday the company was in talks with several potential customers for the upgraded plane.

With the new aircraft, the airline also seeks to offer enhanced services to its customers.
