Boeing sees strong interest in potential new 737 model

"The 737 MAX 10 will provide TUI with the lowest seat costs of any single-aisle airplane in operation today", said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Global Sales & Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

CDB Aviation Lease Finance DAC ("CDB Aviation"), a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing Co., Limited ("CDB Leasing"), announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with Boeing for forty-two 737 MAX 8s, ten 737 MAX 10s and eight 787-9 Dreamliners during the 2017 Paris Air Show.

Industry sources also said Airbus would soon announce an order for 10 of its A350-900 wide-body jets, while sources said on Sunday it was close to clinching a deal worth about $5 billion with low-priced carrier Viva Air Peru.

Big single-aisle planes have become a sweet-spot for buyers.

Airbus also announced that it's studying a more fuel-efficient version of the superjumbo A380, which has struggled to win a big customer base. That's about equal to last year's new orders taken at the Farnborough Airshow, where Airbus wound up with 197 new orders and commitments to 182 for Boeing.

By comparison, the Boeiong 737-800 jets of Qantas and Virgin Australia carry around 174-176 passengers across both business and economy class.

Macron, who wants France to become more tech-savvy and comes off a big electoral win, tried on a virtual reality headset, and checked out Airbus satellites, a drone created to inspect planes and a turbo-generator for hybrid-energy jets.

Even with the A380plus and A350-1000, most are expecting Airbus' narrow body aircraft to steal the show.

London fire: Death toll climbs to 79
May said after the meeting Saturday that there have been "huge frustrations" in the community as people tried to get information. The death toll from the Grenfell Tower block fire in west London has reached 79, the Metropolitan Police confirmed Monday.

With the earlier order for 55 planes and additional 100 new 737-8 MAX aircraft, the no-frills carrier firmed up order for a total of 155 planes along with the rights to purchase 50 more aircraft comprising B737-8 MAX and wide- bodied ones, taking the total number of planes to 205.

Boeing has around 3,700 orders for the whole Max family.

GE Capital Aviation Services ordered 20, converting 20 of its current Max orders into the larger variant.

The entire 737 MAX family has been created to offer customers exceptional performance, flexibility and efficiency, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range that will open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. As always, Boeing and Airbus will duke it out for orders and attention by bringing their latest hardware.

French President Emmanuel Macron is opening the Paris Air Show from the skies.

Boeing is increasing 737 production from 42 to 47 planes a month by the end of this year and will reach 57 annually by 2020 to meet demand, Mr Muilenburg says.

Thousands are expected at the biennial aviation and defence industry gathering this week.
