Today’s key stories focus on the supply chain, and the fears and aspirations associated with doing business with Boeing.  While rising anxiety is reported in Wichita, Indonesia and Turkey are trying to enter the Boeing supply chain, and Boeing is opening a new engineering facility for its defense and services group in Florida.

The narrow-body ramp-up continues to be slow, with few deliveries in May and no MAX orders, which will change with El Al this month and their order for 30 MAX aircraft.  Other stories focus on Qatar Airways and sustainability with their 787 fleet, Singapore Airlines compensation for passengers on the recent  turbulent flight in which one passenger died and several were critically injured.  Bahrain’s Gulf Air is joining the carriers looking at a potential Farnborough order for wide-body aircraft.  

Finally, despite Boeing’s inability to ramp-up production, Airbus is having supply chain problems and cannot take full advantage of Boeing’s weakness, missing its own ramp-up targets.  While Airbus is certainly going to out-deliver Boeing again in 2024, with a full ramp-up the differential would be significantly worse.
