The American aircraft maker Boeing faces a number of major blows in China. According to insiders, airlines in the Asian country would like to order up to 100 aircraft of the 787 Dreamliner type and 777X aircraft. However, the continuing trade feud between China and the US can still throw a spanner in the works.
For a single 787-9 Dreamliner, according to the Boeing catalog, just under 300 million dollars is needed. The 777-9 is the most expensive aircraft of the Americans with a price tag of more than 442 million dollars. This aircraft is scheduled to make its debut next year. Airlines usually manage to negotiate substantial discounts for large orders.
An order of this size would be a welcome move in Boeing’s back. The aircraft maker is troubled by the problems with the 737 MAX aircraft that are being grounded for safety reasons after two similar aircraft accidents in a short time. According to the sources, there is certainly no question of a deal. Parties involved did not want to respond.
