Ruili Airlines operates a fleet of 14 Boeing 737 airplanes.
An Airbus 350-1000 performs his demonstration flight at Paris Air Show, in Le Bourget, east of Paris, France, Tuesday, June 20, 2017 in Paris.
"I think that this will be a down year for Airbus and Boeing in terms of orders but not in deliveries", Leahy stated.
In a statement yesterday, Malaysia Airlines managing director and chief executive officer Peter Bellew said the airline has made a decision to convert some of its 737 MAX 8s to 737 MAX 10s, which offer greater flight efficiency and additional capacity. Yes it is. Are we conceding that Boeing sold a few more aeroplanes than we did?
Boeing's (NYSE:BA) 737 MAX 10 is a big hit at this week's Paris Air Show with over a dozen airlines and fleets placing orders for the larger jet.
Airbus's chief operating officer for commercial aircraft customers, John Leahy, chose to look at the overall picture. "Yes", he told a news conference.
Airbus said it secured deals for 20 A320neo single-aisle planes and eight A330 widebodies from Zagros Airlines and another 45 single-aisle jets from Iran Airtour.
SpiceJet who is India's fourth largest airline signs a deal to buy 40 Boeing 737 Max 10 jets at the cost of ₹30,298 crores.
The 737 Max 200 aircraft will, together with an existing order for 100 Max 200s, assist the company in its pursuit of increasing traffic to 200 million customers a year by 2024.
Analyst Richard Aboulafia, of Virginia-based Teal Group, said commercial activity had been better than expected and was reminiscent of shows in 2009 and 2011, when the aircraft industry had bucked a retreating world economy.
Lion Mentari Airlines PT of Indonesia and United Airlines are also expected to make orders during the Paris Air Show. However, executives at Airbus say that the Max 10 is a bigger threat to other models from Boeing than to the Airbus Neo. "We've got 42 percent of the market at the Airshow for the last three days, they've got the rest", he said. More than 360 of those came for the 737 MAX 10, which was launched at the show.
