Go East, Young Man
In searching for a market to sell its Dreamliner,
Boeing executives see a great potential in Japan.
"We think we have a real winner in this product," Boeing
director Randy Tinseth, who is in charge of marketing, said during
a visit to Tokyo.
Boeing predicts airplane demand will stay strong over the next
20 years, adding more than 24,000 planes, 18,000 of them in growth
and nearly 6,000 in replacement planes. Tinseth said Boeing does
not have a market share forecast.
Boeing hopes to sell up to 2,000 of its 7E7s over the next two
decades. Each Dreamliner can carry up to 250 passengers,
with wider aisles and better fuel efficiency.
