White House Announces Largest Boeing Deal Ever

Only one week ago, Boeing gushed that it had landed its biggest aircraft order ever. The order came from Dubai’s Emirates which ordered 50 Boeing 777s, with a total value of $18 billion.

Now, just one week later, Boeing is already crushing that record, as an order just came in from private carrier Lion Air of Indonesia. They have ordered 230 planes including 201 Boeing 737 “MAX” and 29 extended-range 737s. The order was actually announced by the White House during President Barack Obama’s recent trip to Bali, Indonesia.
