Executive Predicts 500 Sales By First Flight
Boeing says it's talking with 30 companies worldwide about
signing on for the 7E7 Dreamliner. If things keep going like this,
says 7E7 Senior Vice President Mike Bair, Boeing could sell 500
Dreamliners before the aircraft rolls out in 2007.
As ANN has reported, Boeing has already sold both All Nippon
Airways and Air New Zealand on the Dreamliner, promising to deliver
passengers to their destinations at a 20-percent fuel savings.
The latest market under Boeing's microscope is Europe. "I'm
absolutely convinced you're going to see this airplane in the UK
and flying around with British airline colors," said Boeing
Commercial Aircraft's top salesman in Europe, Marlin Dailey. He
said Boeing is in talks with up to a dozen European airlines.
"There's no doubt we will be bringing a European launch customer
some time this year," he said at a London news conference.
