Seattle Times preview of the Farnborough Air Show 2014

From today’s Seattle Times front page:

When the Farnborough Air Show opens Monday, “The eyes of the aviation world are on Airbus,” said Richard Aboulafia.

The European jetmaker is building airplanes at record rates and has been executing its new programs brilliantly. Unlike the 787, its A350 is on schedule. And it just rolled out its first narrowbody A320neo, at least a year ahead of Boeing’s 737 MAX.

Still, in London its executives face nagging decisions about their future widebody jet strategy.
Whether to launch an A330neo? What to do to compete against the 777-9X? How to revamp the A380 superjumbo?

Boeing’s course is firmly set. At the Air Show, the aviation industry will look for clues to Airbus’s possible direction.

“There isn’t the same level of existential dilemma for Boeing at this Air Show,” said Aboulafia, longtime aerospace analyst with the Teal Group.
