No Boeing at Farnborough this year

Boeing is not bringing any of its commercial jets to this year's Farnborough Airshow which starts Monday 22 July, the company has confirmed.  In Defence and hospitality it will be seen.

This is the first time that anyone can remember its non-attendance at the gathering which vies with Paris as the world's largest airshow.

The decision comes as Boeing deals with an ongoing crisis sparked by January's Alaska Airlines blowout and delivery delays.  CEO Dave Calhoun announced he will resign at the end of the year.  His attendance has still not been confirmed.

Boeing also did not display any passenger jets at February's Singapore Airshow.

Qatar Airways is set to display a 787 Dreamliner at the show with the latest QSuite offering.  New CEO Badr Mohammed Al Meer, an engineer by training, is expected to be in attendance.
