Boeing, Airbus seek to outdo each other at Paris Air Show

Malita Javier | 19 Junio, 2017, 15:58

While new civilian aircraft orders will probably fall short of the $130 billion the Paris show clocked up last time - mostly thanks to booming orders for Boeing and Airbus - the industry is still optimistic about sustained long-term growth.

Among the 130 aircraft on display, the star will likely be the cutting-edge F-35 stealth jet fighter, which costs around $100 million each.

Boeing wants to punch back at Airbus, which is outselling the US plane maker roughly five to one in sales for the biggest single-aisle jets.

The A380plus includes many new aerodynamic improvements with its brand new larger winglets.

Trump to Announce Tougher Rules for Cuba
Americans will not be allowed to conduct any business with anyone or entity linked to the Cuban military or intelligence services. Under Obama, the two countries restored diplomatic ties and direct communications, including air connections and postal service.

CALC's purchase of the newest variant of Boeing's most-sold jet is seen as part of an order for 50 aircraft from the 737 MAX family announced by the Hong Kong leasing firm this week.

Boeing is expected to launch the 190-230 seat 737 MAX 10 with more seats and a modified landing gear at the opening of the Paris Airshow on Monday, adding a larger, new version to its narrowbody medium-haul family to plug a gap against Airbus. This increase in the takeoff weight will allow the flexibility of carrying up to 80 more passengers or flying 300 nautical miles (nm) further.

The plane will also get taller landing gear to help resolve balance and tail-skid issues that cropped up with the 737-900ER, Keith Leverkuhn, general manager of the Max programme, said.

For much of the year, Boeing Co. and Airbus SE, the world's top two jetliner makers, have warned investors that orders for new planes would decline this year.

The cumulative changes, which Boeing reckons it has achieved on a shoestring budget, are resonating well with customers, Kevin McAllister, who heads Boeing's commercial airplanes arm, said.

Boeing will this week show off a 737 Max-9, which has struggled to attract customers.

For more information, visit the Paris Air Show's website.

But he said questions remain over to what extent that demand would be met by four-engined jets like the A380 or big twinjets closer to 400 seats, like the Boeing 777-9 and Airbus A350-1000.
