Boeing Back In The Game?

On December 13, 2022, United Airlines announced the finalization of the largest order of Boeing 787 Dreamliners in Boeing’s history. What makes the purchase even more momentous, is that United Airlines also bought 100 Boeing 737 MAX.

Boeing has faced serious challenges since 2018 with the crash of two of its Boeing 737 MAX in 2018 and 2019. This came on the heels of the global pandemic which crippled the aviation industry for a while. However, this order could very well mean that Boeing is back in the game and is on track to reclaim its global dominance in manufacturing airliners.
