LE BOURGET, France (AP) — Airbus is jockeying with rival Boeing for new orders at the aviation industry's premier event — and the European planemaker is hoping it doesn't see any more glitches.
Low-cost Nordic carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle announced an order at the Paris Air Show on Tuesday for 15 Boeing 737-800 planes in a deal worth $1.2 billion at list prices. Carriers often negotiate discounts on big orders.
Airbus began the day officializing a deal with Rolls Royce to supply new, more powerful engines for a revamped version of the A350-1000.
Airbus and Boeing announced a total of $25 billion in orders, options and commitments as the show opened on Monday. But Airbus also suffered a clipped wing on its superjumbo A380 and announced delays to the A350-1000.
