Jetrader - September/October 2011 - 25

Boeing’s 747-8F was a key player in Boeing’s strong lineup at the air show.

Together with the 747-8 Freighter, the “pride of the fleet” 787, a Qatar 777200LR and a 737700 in Air Berlin livery, Boeing had the strongest lineup in many years.
777 orders from Qatar and 737s from ALC. Probably the biggest success for Boeing were the orders for 17 of the poor-selling 747-8Is from undisclosed customers. Fifteen of these were rumored to be for Hong Kong Airlines, who was also expected to announce an A380 order, which was apparently blocked by the Chinese government in protest against the European Emission Trading Scheme. Embraer once more kept a low profile at the show and announced E-Jets for Sriwijaja Air, Kenya Airways and a few others. Bombardier added 10 CSeries for another undisclosed customer. ATR and Mitsubishi completed the festivities on the first day and brought the order total to an estimated $30 billion. Arriving only on Tuesday afternoon meant having missed the ISTAT Reception, always one of the highlights of the air show week. On the other hand,

traveling midday from Charles de Gaulle airport to the (€250 per night) one-star hotel and subsequently to Le Bourget had the benefi t of not getting stuck in rush hour traffic. The unusually friendly Parisian taxi driver, however, complained that morning traffic on Tuesday had been horrible, even by local standards. The weather had been poor and on top of it all, parts of the local public transport system, notably the RER train drivers, had decided to go on strike. As always, local authorities

believe the best solution to any traffic situation is to throw more and more police officers at the problem. So every crossroad, roundabout or show entrance had at least five local “gendarmes” to utterly confuse air show visitors and create the ultimate gridlock. To get to Le Bourget from downtown Paris by car took about two hours. Due to the strike, public transport was even worse, and fellow show-goers reported transit times of more than three hours during the morning.

ISTAT Directors Douglas Runte and Jep Thornton try out the new Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental at Le Bourget.
