DUBAI — the 2017 Dubai Air Show is in the books, and despite the tens of billions of dollars of purchase activity, the biggest story from the show may well be a purchase that didn’t happen.
In years to come, we may well look back at Dubai 2017 as the moment the Airbus A380 program truly became ‘a dead man walking’ after Emirates declined to order the superjumbo without a massive, 10-year production commitment from Airbus.
Beyond that, Airbus and Boeing each received more than $40 billion of orders and commitments, and even secondary manufacturers like Bombardier and Sukhoi found success in Dubai, which is not necessarily a common occurrence.
