Boeing looks past union squabble to focus on Dubai Airshow

Boeing (BA) isn't going to let a high profile labor contract dispute with its machinist union interfere with the launch of the 777X at the Dubai airshow, a company official says.

BA "is expected to launch [the jet] with orders from the top three Gulf carriers," Reuters notes, referring to Emirates, Etihad, and Qatar Airways.

The high profile event starts on Sunday and Airbus (EADSF) will be looking for ways to steal BA's 777X thunder.

Something to watch: Whether Airbus can successfully pitch its A380 superjumbo which, so far this year, has yet to see any orders.

    hopefully it's still safe to sell soda pop over there as well. the folks on Madison Avenue need to "bring home the bread" too. obviously it would be nice if some of this tremendous bounty being made on Wall Street made its way to Upstate as well in the form of new (private) construction, plant and equipment and jobs. we built...and are now rebuilding to an even better degree...all the infrastructure we will ever need. looking forward to seeing it all being put to good use.

    Its appear that Boeing is doing thing backward
    First get the order's and then get a new Union contact in 2016 when the existing contact run out


    Boeing did not need to replace the existing union contact with a new contact that full of loop holes which does not create 48,000 new jobs, off loading of Manufacturing , design, engineering
    Boeing is no longer is MOM and POP shop but a Multinational corporation that build 70% aircraft in 70 counties and 25 state is was 26 but in 2005 Boeing has sold off its Manufacturing Capabilities to other aerospace company
    see Manufacturing and suppliers (787)


    Everett and Renton are only completion center


    This has been smoke screen to get 27 Billions from the tax payer to pay for the 777-X aircraft and complex


    Boeing CEO has received a 27 million bonuses and Ray Conner received 60,000 share of Boeing stock


    The 777-X is not official program and nothing has been file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)


    Claiming that the deal will guarantee “tens of thousands” of jobs for the state, Washington’s legislature has approved an $8.7 billion package of incentives for The Boeing Co


    Another false and misleading statement by the press
    The high profile event starts on Sunday and Airbus (OTC:EADSF) will be looking for ways to steal BA's 777X thunder.

    or does ever employee get a parking space )
    Alone with the exiting 9 Billions to the year to 2040


    Any money to Boeing should be Bond issues this would allow the tax payer to get paid back


    The Washington state governor , the Union local 751 and Boeing management should get their own loan
    The tax payer of south Caroline has pay for the 787 site started by Vought aircraft company now Boeing, including 1100 areas of land , 480 feet wide assemble bays, Climate Control, tax break, composite equipment's, clean room auto clay and the training of the work force that up running today unlike the 27 billion that will need to be spent on new 1.5 millions square 777-X complex ,
