After a show in which both manufacturers did brisk business under a sweltering sun, the European planemaker said on Thursday it had won 346 net new orders and commitments - including a last-minute order for 20 - while U.S. rival Boeing reached 571. "The MAX stole the show," Ihssane Mounir, vice president of sales and marketing at Boeing's commercial aircraft division, said. Combined orders were stronger than expected and edged past the total from the same show two years ago, but were well below a 2011 order blowout when Airbus alone managed a similar tally.

"The MAX stole the show," Ihssane Mounir, vice president of sales and marketing at Boeing's commercial aircraft division, told journalists. Asked if Airbus had lost momentum after years in which it often trounced Boeing at annual industry gatherings, sales chief John Leahy said the slowdown in orders had been expected.
Airbus has launched a digital services platform it says will enable airlines to fly more efficiently by crunching data to help them with maintenance, reduce fuel burn and optimise routes. The platform is powered by Silicon Valley firm Palantir and Airbus has been working with airlines such as AirAsia (Kuala Lumpur: 5099.KL - news) , Peach, easyJet and Emirates to show the benefits of the data crunching. "It's bringing together these data platforms with the knowledge of our engineers," Airbus chief operating officer Fabrice Bregier said at the Paris Airshow on Tuesday.
