Boeing wins Paris order title as Airbus's Leahy announces retirement

United Airlines executive vice-president and chief financial officerAndrew Levy said: "The 737 MAX 10 will enable us to continue using larger and more efficient aircraft within our domestic network and better meet the needs of our customers today and into the future".

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

SpiceJet announces commitment for 40 737 MAX airplanes worth $4.7 bln at list prices.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President Kevin McAllister poses with a model of 737 MAX 10, during the 52nd Paris Air Show at Le Bourget Airport near Paris, June 20, 2017.

The company thus became the first Boeing 737 MAX operator in Romania. After converting part of the original MAX order to the 10, Malaysia Air has 15 MAX 8s on order. "The 737 MAX is ideally suited to Blue Air and the market it serves, increasing revenue potential all with improved operating efficiencies".

Boeing, meanwhile, has a Paris order book of 463 when conversions, previous orders upgraded to newer planes, are stripped out.

Boeing additionally revealed an order with Algeria's Tassili Airlines for three 737-800s valued at more than $294 million at list prices.

Investigators have been working tirelessly over the last 48 hours to establish who is missing, and to identify the victims. But he warned that not everyone would be identifiable and the operation would take "many, many weeks".

Romanian low-priced carrier Blue Air has placed an order for six 737 MAXs 8 aircraft with United States aviation corporation Boeing.

Avolon signs a memorandum of understanding for 75 737 MAX 8 aircraft, valued at $8.4 billion. The agreement also includes purchase rights for an additional 50 airplanes.

Gerry Laderman, United senior vice president, said the MAX 10 had "the best economics of the family", a boost for a plane Boeing created to plug a gap in its range at the top end of the market for single-aisle jets, following runaway sales of the rival Airbus A321neo. In 2016, the national carrier announced an order for 25 737 MAXs.

The 737 MAX 10 will be the most profitable single-aisle airplane, offering the lowest seat costs ever. Yes, it is. Are we conceding that Boeing sold a few more airplanes than we did?

And in non-737 news, Israel's El Al has firmed up an existing commitment for Dreamliners, ordering two 787-8s and one 787-9.

Moreover, Blue Air will rent 12 other Boeing 737 airplanes from Air Lease Corporation, with whom it has begun a collaboration this year.
