Airbus, Boeing duel over single-aisle jets in Dubai

Airbus and Boeing duelled over single-aisle jets at the Dubai Airshow on Tuesday, with the U.S. firm hoping a flurry of orders will revive faith in its grounded 737 MAX.

Julian Satterthwaite reports.

The Dubai Airshow is known for giant orders for giant jets.

In past years local airline Emirates made a habit of blockbuster commitments for planes like Airbus's A380.

On day three (November 19) of this year's show, the focus turned to smaller aircraft though.

Not least, Boeing's troubled 737 MAX.

It's still grounded worldwide after two fatal crashes.

But the U.S. planemaker hopes a flurry of orders will help restore faith.

Tuesday saw airlines commit to as many as 50 of the type, worth around 6 billion dollars at list prices.

Kazakh flag carrier Air Astana was among those to sign on the dotted line.

It said it was confident Boeing would soon have the MAX back in the air.

Airbus too was busy signing up customers for its single-aisle jets.

It struck deals with carriers including Saudi budget brand Flynas and Air Senegal.

That a day after it sold 120 narrowbodies to Air Arabia in a deal valued at up to 14 billion dollars.

As for bigger planes, Tuesday largely looked like a story of orders on hold.

There were no signs that Emirates was about to firm up a provisional contract for 40 of Boeing's 787 Dreamliners.

That may hang on the fate of a deal for the larger 777X, for which Emirates is the biggest customer.

The airline says it may want to adjust that order, and Reuters sources say it could use the Dreamliners as leverage.
