A few days in Dublin

DUBLIN - I always look forward to the annual Airfinance Journal Conference. It’s the chance to catch up with all my aviation colleagues in Dublin, look back at 2012, and look ahead to 2013.

I heard from the airlines, leasing companies and banks—and I have to tell you that everyone was very optimistic for what the future holds.

I was on a panel regarding airplane economic life, airplane residual value and the secondary market—and also got the chance to make a presentation on the market, our forecast, our new products and our product strategy.

Obviously, the 787 was top of mind. We’ve received incredible support from our 787 customers—many represented in Dublin— and we can’t thank them enough. We deeply regret the impact that recent events have had on their operating schedules, as well as the inconvenience to their passengers. We have hundreds of experts from around The Boeing Company, from all of our divisions, working together around the clock to resolve the issue.

Boeing welcomes the progress being made in the 787 investigation discussed today by the NTSB. We’re eager to see the investigative groups continue their efforts and determine the cause of these events, and we’ll be there every step of the way to support them. The safety of passengers and crew members who fly aboard Boeing airplanes will always be at the top of our list.

Hopefully the problems with the 787s battery will be resolved soon and the 787 back in the air with confidence from all sides of the business and passenger equation.
