Why orders slump wont hurt Paris air show

09 JUNE, 2017 If Airbus’s outspoken chief salesman John Leahy is to be believed, the Paris air show might not bring the expected rush of mega-deals that we have become used to during a bumper era for commercial aircraft orders. But with record backlogs in hand, such a slowdown would not be a proble

This year’s industry gathering at Le Bourget may well see combined orders for the “big two” fall short of the 902 aircraft, worth just shy of $60 billion, recorded at its showcase event in 2015.

However, what it will be remarkable for is the wide array of new “metal” which will be on display.

In a literal sense, the biggest noise will be around the debut Paris appearance for Lockheed Martin’s F-35A, with the US Air Force to showcase the stealthy type in the air and also on static display. But other first-time Le Bourget appearances will be made by types including the Airbus A350-1000, Boeing 737 Max 8 and Mitsubishi MRJ, all of which will be seeking further buyers. Lockheed’s LM-100J commercial freighter will also be on view, with Embraer’s KC-390 and the Kawasaki P-1.

Strong indications suggest that Seattle will also use the event to officially launch its doubled-stretched 737 Max 10X, and perhaps lift first orders for the type.

Bumper sales make for great headlines, but after a period of huge backlog build-up, sometimes it’s good to just step back and admire a new breed of aircraft.
