Viva Air Peru nears $5 bln Airbus airliner deal

In a phone interview from Paris, Keith Leverkuhn, Boeing vice president in charge of the MAX program, said he's very pleased with the 44 incremental orders and that the conversions reflect the importance of allowing airlines to subsitute other models as they nail down their own fleet planning needs.

Boeing says that it has attracted 240 orders for the B737 Max 10 from more than ten customers, with orders being announced throughout the week.

Many are expecting Boeing to utilize the Paris Air Show to launch the 737 MAX 10, which the manufacturer aims to use to compete with the A321neo.

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) announced an order for 20 of the new Boeing 737 MAX 10 at the Paris Air Show by converting 20 of its current MAX orders to the larger MAX 10, which was launched Monday.

Speaking ahead of the Paris Air Show, which starts tomorrow, boss Dennis Muilenburg said Boeing remained committed to long-term investment in the United Kingdom, regardless of the outcome of Brexit talks. In addition, numerous commitments announced today were conversions from existing 737 MAX orders.

In an Associated Press interview at the opening Monday of the Paris Air Show, Brigadier General Select Todd Canterbury said the displays of the new jet are to "showcase the capability to all of our European partners and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies" and "to reassure them that we are committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation 100 percent and that we have got the capability to respond to any action necessary".

SpiceJet is scheduled to take the delivery of its first 737 MAX in 2018.

The Max 10 is 66 inches longer than the Max 9 at 143ft 8in (43.8m), but its slightly bigger passenger capacity means its range is 300 nautical miles less than the 3,515 of the Max 8 and 9.

Airbus chief Fabrice Bregier said today that the company was in talks with several potential customers for the upgraded plane. Meanwhile, ALAFCO committed to twenty 737 Max 8s worth $2.2 billion at list prices. "Max 8 and Max 9 continue to be at the heart of the market".

Kevin McAllister, head of Boeing Commercial planes, told reporters Sunday that there is a gap in the middle of the market, but that the company's focus is on putting together a business plan and taking its time "to do it right".

In an Associated Press interview at the opening Monday of the Paris Air Show, a senior F-35 Air Force administrator, Brigadier General Select Todd Canterbury, said the daily displays of the new jet are to showcase its abilities and "reassure (allies) that we are committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation 100 percent and that we have got the capability to respond to any action necessary".

Mr Muilenburg said the aircraft being planned would have a range of about 5,000 nautical miles and carry in the region of 230 passengers - about 100 fewer than the biggest version of the Dreamliner.
