Boeing loses 787 orders

DESPITE Boeing forecasting that the worldwide air cargo market will grow about 14 per cent this year, the manufacturer had more cancellations last week.

Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) ordered 15 787 Deamliners and 10 777-300ERs in 2008 but has now cancelled them following the emirate deciding to focus on the Emirates airline and new airport instead.

DAE still has 116 unfilled orders with Boeing, but even some of these are rumoured to be softening.

So far this year, Boeing has won orders for 28 787s but lost 32; a total of four lost.
