This story just appeared in The News Tribune, a WA state daily. In it, the Boeing Co. boasts increasing deliveries from 290 in 2005 to 445 in 2007. The paper then continues with the rather vague notion that "The company’s new 787 Dreamliner, for instance, last year became the most popular Boeing jetliner ever, measured by precommercial service orders."
Anyway, interesting facts and analysis, even if with a bit too much pro-Boeing bravado. I wonder whether this all is sustainable. Just think about it, less than two years ago B was considered outdone by A. Can it be said that Boeing mastered the post-9/11 surge in aircraft demand?
