Boeing wins a trifecta of commercial aircraft orders

US aerospace giant Boeing has announced a series of orders for its commercial aircraft during this month so far. The orders are for 737 MAX 10 single-aisle and 787 Dreamliner wide-body airliners and 777 freighter aircraft. The three deals have a total value of some $19.94-billion. The first order to be announced was from American Airlines, for 47 787s, divided into 22 787-8 and 25 787-9 aircraft. The airline also took out options on 28 more of the new generation wide-body design. This is American’s third order for Dreamliners and will more than double its fleet of the type. The value of this latest contract is $12-billion. “We are showing again and again that the 787 Dreamliner is the champion in its class,” affirmed Boeing Senior VP Commercial Sales & Marketing Ihssane Mounir. “The airplane’s tremendous value proposition explains why it has become the fastest selling twin-aisle jet in history. And when we match the Dreamliner with Boeing’s suite of services, it is a combination that delivers unbeatable value for our customers.”
