Boeing Co. escaped Airbus Group NV's shadow on the third day of the Farnborough Airshow as an agreement to sell new 777X jets to Qatar Airways Ltd. drove a $46 billion haul of orders and options.After dominating Boeing on the first two days of the event, Airbus reported one deal Wednesday valued at $1.2 billion at list prices, according to data compiled by Bloomberg Industries. Boeing's accord with Qatar Airways, which isn't a completed order, is for 50 of the -9X version along with 50 options.Boeing's backlog was 5,197 planes through June, compared with 5,546 for Toulouse, France-based Airbus, according to data compiled by Bloomberg Industries.Only one buyer formally expressed interest in Airbus' competing A350 this week: Air Mauritius Ltd. took options on four planes.
