Airbus, Boeing commercial aircraft deals at Paris Airshow

Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Boeing Commercial Airplane, added: "The 737 family has been the foundation on which Ryanair has revolutionised low-priced travel in Europe and we are honoured that this iconic operator continues to grow in partnership with Boeing".

High interest from Asian and Iranian airlines notably boosted sales for both plane makers, dispelling some concerns of slumping demand.

The Chicago-based company said it was exiting the Paris extravaganza with 361 commitments from 16 airlines for its newest single-aisle plane, the 737 Max 10, only formally launched Monday.

Meanwhile, rival Airbus said it booked firm orders of 144 planes valued at $18.5 billion and memorandums of understanding for 182 aircraft valued at $21.2 billion.

"The 737 MAX 10 will be the most profitable single-aisle airplane offering the lowest seat costs ever, and will be a great complement to Malaysia Airlines' all single-aisle fleet of 737s as they continue to add capacity to their routes", he said. Including engines, deal worth $1.16 billion.

The A321 is larger than any previous member of the 737 family, a gap that the MAX 10 is meant to close.

Boeing reported Thursday it registered firm orders or promised orders for 571 planes this week, worth $74.8 billion at list prices.

Boeing and United Airlines announced an agreement at the 2017 Paris Air Show to convert 100 of its current 737 MAX orders into 737 MAX 10s, becoming the largest single 737 MAX 10 customer in the world. "We look forward to delivering this first 737 MAX to Mauritania later this year".

The world's third-largest lessor Avolon ordered $8.4 billion worth of Boeing models.

Romania's Blue Air announces order for six 737 MAXs.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,700 orders from 87 customers worldwide.

"The 737 MAX's promised efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort make it a very compelling airplane for us in our domestic and regional network", Ruili GM Xie Jinguo said.

Moreover, Blue Air will rent 12 other Boeing 737 airplanes from Air Lease Corporation, with whom it has begun a collaboration this year.
