Boeing Sales Impress


  • Boeing could add 600 orders in the near future coming from order announcements during the air show.
  • Value orders and commitments including service contracts is $82B.
  • Boeing managed to sell 50 Boeing 787 and 6 Boeing 777, showing some satisfying wide body order inflow.

The Paris Air Show took place from the 19th of June until the 25th of June and the first four days have been used to announce orders. In the days after, I have been splitting and verifying the data, and if we include everything, we get a total of 1,483 orders, customer reveals, options, and conversions valued $137.9B at list prices. After discounts, the market value of all these orders is likely closer to $63-69B for Boeing (NYSE:NYSE:BA), Airbus (OTCPK:EADSF), Embraer (NYSE:ERJ), ATR, and Bombardier (OTCQX:BDRAF). There are a lot of splits that can be made, and in this article, I want to focus on what the air show meant for Boeing.

The conversions have also been valued on their added value from sizing up the order, instead of the full aircraft catalog value. So, that is going to be quite a substantial difference. In the order and commitment tallies, customer reveals, 35 in total, will not be accounted for as an order or commitment nor will their value be added. The reason is that these order reveals do not materially change the order books of jet makers or add value. Type conversions for options, 10 in total, are counted in the separate tallies since they do add potential value from sizing up or down from one aircraft type to the other.

The first split we make is by taking out the customer reveals, which
