Boeing Nabs Wide-Body Orders, Airbus Close to A380 Deal

According to Reuters, Boeing pulled in seven orders over the last week for its 767 and 777 aircraft bringing the company’s orders sheet to nine planes on the year after subtracting cancellations.

The three 767s were ordered by Chilean airline LAN and the four 777 orders were from an undisclosed customer.

Airbus COO John Leahy also announced yesterday that the European plane maker was close to finalizing a four-plane deal for the double-decker A380 from Japanese carrier Skymark Airlines, according to a separate Reuters report on Wednesday.

  1. I think it is great that the B767 legacy continues! It is the right bird for the right missions.

      The 767 was the first wide-body I ever flew on (Raleigh to London in the mid 1990s. I think they use 777s on that route now). I’m curious to see how Boeing pitches the aircraft once the 787 is out considering their similar size.
