F-35 fighter show is gesture to US allies

In November 2015, Jet had announced the order for 75 737 MAX single-aisle aircraft from Boeing for United States dollars 8,250 million while IndiGo in August same year firmed up a USD 25.7 billion order for 250 A320neo aircraft.

Design changes for the 737 MAX 10 include a fuselage stretch of 66 inches compared to the 737 MAX 9 and levered main landing gear.

He said: ‘The Max 10 is essentially the same size as the A321 but has about 5 per cent better operating costs per seat so it’s a very attractive airplane.

The first customers to be announced were BOC Aviation, which has signed a memorandum of understanding with BOC Capital for 10 planes, and GE Capital, which has converted 20 orders.

Boeing is betting on the Max 10 to carve out sales and stem customer defections to Airbus’s A321neo, which has racked up a considerable sales lead since being launched three years ago and still has room for upgrades.

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 per cent and that we have got the capability to respond to any action necessary”.

This year, each company is expected to announce around 200 orders, though some may only be airlines or leasing companies firming up earlier tentative orders.

Paris: Boeing Co. will offer its first new jet in nearly four years, with the stretched Max 10 upgrade of the 50-year-old 737 countering Airbus SE’s headstart at the largest end of the single-aisle aircraft market.

SpiceJet announces commitment for 40 737 MAX airplanes worth $4.7 bln at list prices.

Numerous sources are also expecting the American manufacturer to unveil details for an entirely new aircraft, now touted as Boeing’s New Midsize Airplane, or NMA. Boeing is promising airlines a 14% decrease in fuel usage, primarily due to its two new engines and aerodynamic improvements. “Max 8 and Max 9 continue to be at the heart of the market”.

Boeing BA.N has received strong interest in a potential new member of its best-selling 737 aircraft range, the planemaker’s new commercial chief said on Sunday. The MAX 10 will be introduced in the 2020 time frame.

The company scrambled to put together the Max 10 in response to the demand from airlines for more fuel-efficient planes carrying more passengers. The Airbus plane can fit 240 passengers.
