Qatar tipped to strike key Boeing deal

US aircraft maker Boeing is expected to announce a major deal to supply Qatar Airways with widebody jetliners.

The sale could be worth as much as $18bn (£14.5bn), the BBC understands.

If finalised, it would give Boeing a boost in a year when orders for widebody planes have slumped.

The deal comes as Qatar has been frustrated over prolonged delivery problems from European Boeing rival Airbus.

The large American Airlines' aircraft order signed a couple of years ago includes Airbus products. I don't know the reason for the split order. Perhaps Boeing couldn't deliver 737s fast enough to meet our replacement schedule or management thought it unwise to have just one aircraft supply company. Whatever the reason, I prefer Boeing aircraft.
