Boeing Expands Widebody Dominance

With over half the total of 2017’s widebody orders already amassed in the first quarter of this year (pending deals to be firmed), Boeing’s dominance of the twin-aisle, widebody segment is poised for further expansion.

Boeing’s VP Marketing, Randy Tinseth recently teased that more widebody success was in the pipeline.

And we are working to add to the total with a number of campaigns, including finalizing an order for 40 787-10s from Emirates.

Given the embarrassing cancellation of the handful of A330-800neo’s, Airbus is struggling with its widebody products. The A330-900neo is already almost a year late, relying on junk credit-rated customers to prop up its thin backlog.

With no direct competitive offering against 777-8, 777-9, 777F, 787-9 or 787-10, Airbus’ limited success has come at the other end of the spectrum with low yield narrowbodies – albeit plagued by the seemingly never-ending GTF issues.
