Boeing claimed victory after outselling rival Airbus at this week's Farnborough Airshow, where the world's largest plane-makers repeated last year's comparable haul of around 900 orders with the help of leasing industry demand. The world's biggest plane-maker said it won 528 orders and commitments at the event in southern England, while Airbus reported 431 new deals, or 371 excluding the recently acquired Bombardier CSeries, now rebranded A220 .In another key battleground, Airbus hit back by grabbing an order for 50 A321neo jets from Vietnam's VietJet, 24 hours after the fast-growing budget carrier placed an order for 100 737 MAX aircraft across the tarmac at Boeing. The A321neo has been far outselling Boeing in that 220-seat niche. Airbus sold 60 A220 and Embraer sold 300 jets, including many too small to compete with the A220, worth $15 billion.
