Boeing, Hawaiian Airlines finalise deal on 787s

Boeing announced a total of 673 orders and commitments for planes compared with 571 at last year's Paris Air Show. Airbus' tally of 431 was up from 326

After big moves were made on Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3, let's see what happened on Day 4 of the airshow.

AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes left Farnborough in suspense over flying in from Malaysia to confirm an Airbus A330neo order or defecting to the Boeing 787.

Seacons Trading has ordered a 737 MAX 7 from Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), the 20th MAX order for BBJ.

The firm order for 10 787s will be added to Boeing's order backlog, while the 10 purchase rights will remain as commitments.

But the list was heavily overshadowed by deals where the names of the buyers were undisclosed - an unusual phenomenon at a high profile event specifically created to attract publicity.

Two unnamed customers have placed orders for a combined 15 787-9 Dreamliners.


Airbus listed orders for 80 A320neo narrowbody jets from an unidentified leasing company, another for 100 similar narrowbody aircraft, plus 14 wide-body jets: eight A350-900 and six A330neo - an anonymous haul worth $24bn at list prices.

The agreements will be reflected on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website when they have been finalized, a statement said.

Airbus said it racked up $62 billion of sales from 431 planes, meaning the hoped-for order for A321neo narrow-body planes from AirAsia Group would have given it victory by a margin of just three jets.

Also earlier in the week Boeing and Qatar Airways finalised an order for five 777 Freighters at a current value of $1.7 billion, an arrangement first set out in April. After considering not taking any A330s at all, the airline has committed to taking a total of 100 A330 aircraft. Boeing may also report at least one undisclosed order this week.

The world's top two airplane builders declined to name the buyers on approximately 400 deals, with Airbus citing growing trade tensions leaving certain companies nervous to side with the US, according to Reuters. The manufacturer calls it "an advanced analytics solution enabled my multi-source surveillance data".
