Boeing wins Paris order race after launching new model
After a show in which both manufacturers did brisk business under a sweltering sun, the European planemaker said on Thursday it had won 346 net new orders and commitments - including a last-minute order for 20 - while U.S. rival Boeing reached 571. "The MAX stole the show," Ihssane Mounir, vice president of sales and marketing at Boeing's commercial aircraft division, said. Combined orders were stronger than expected and edged past the total from the same show two years ago, but were well below a 2011 order blowout when Airbus alone managed a similar tally.
