Airbus and Boeing Bag Orders in Paris

Planemakers Airbus and Boeing ended the first day of the Paris Air Show with more than 200 combined orders.
The biggest single deal was placed by Indonesia's Garuda, with an order worth $20billion at list prices for 60 Boeing and 30 Airbus aircraft.
But one of the most significant Airbus announcements involved satellites rather than aircraft.
It will build the world's largest satellite constellation, making 900 for OneWeb, to expand internet access.
Garuda president Ari Wibowo said his company's order for both long and short-haul aircraft, including 30 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, was to expand the carrier's domestic and international route network, including to the US.
