Countdown to Paris

The Paris Air Show is just around the corner. And today, we unveiled our plans for Le Bourget.

We’re proud to once again be flying a 787-9 at the show. This time, it’s a gorgeous bird for Vietnam Airlines.


This 787-9 for Vietnam Airlines will take part in the flying display at Paris.

Our pilots have been practicing their routine over in Moses Lake, Wash. You’ll definitely remember this amazing rehearsal for last year’s show at Farnborough that racked up more than 4 million views on YouTube. We’ll be giving you a look at this year’s practice during the week of the show.

Also at Paris, we’ll be displaying a 777-300ER for China Airlines. The airplane will be on static display so that visitors can check out its innovative interior.

Qatar Airways will also have a 787-8 on static display.

Before I head over to Paris late next week, I’ll be unveiling this year’s Current Market Outlook on June 11. I won’t give anything away except to say that the forecast for new airplane demand isn’t slowing down.

And here’s another thing that isn’t slowing down—our delivery pace. Through the end of May, we’ve delivered 310 airplanes. That’s up from 271 during the same period last year. Congratulations to our entire team for executing on our production rate increases.

The Paris Air Show is like no other air show for the airline industry. I really hope to see orders for the 777X, the 787 as well as the 737 MAX.
