Boeing Looking To Japan, Other Markets For 7E7

Sat Sep 20, 2003 1:06 am

Boeing has about 100% market share with JAL/ANA.

Japanese governement own JAL and is heavily involved in 7E7 support

Japanese government is always in discussion with US on the trade balance.

I don't see JAl as a 7e7 launch customer as a sign of strenght.

Nor would I see Emirates, Quatar or SQ as such.

To much governement / oil / status involved.

Don't JAL and ANA both have all boeing fleets? I know ANA ordered 737s to replace the A320s and older 737s, JAL has an entirely boeing fleet, if you consider the DC10s and MD11s Boeings. I definitely see both of these carriers as launch customers, along with possibly DL and CO

Then what do you say about the 380? 80 of the 116 380s on firm orders are from airlines in your classification: Emirates (43), Singapore (12), Air France (10), and Lufthansa (15).

FWIW, JAL is a fully privatized airline. See http://www.japanair.com/e/aboutjal/history.php#4. Government owned does not always mean the government is heavily involved. SQ has been quite profitable that they really don't need any hand-out from their government.
