Boeing (BA +1.2%) is poised to win orders from two jet-leasing companies for narrow- and wide-body planes valued at as much as $9.2B, with the deals announced at the Farnborough Air Show possibly as soon as tomorrow, Bloomberg reports.

Air Lease (AL +2.4%) reportedly may buy 20 of Boeing’s 737 Max single-aisle jet and six 777 wide-bodies, while BOC Aviation may commit to at least 50 of the Max jets.

Even so, Airbus (EADSF, EADSY) grabbed more than $21B in firm orders and sales deals on the opening day of the Farnborough forum, nearly triple the tally for Boeing.
