Boeing ups forecast Chinese new plane purchases over 20 years by 6.2 percent

    China is making its own planes now and as the tariff row accelerates, this forecast might be a little too rosy.

    I had openly said it a number of times before & here I would like to say it out again.
    The Chinese government should think not once, not even twice but many times before making the decision to buy Boeing planes. They should speed up their own production of commercial planes. Why?

    1) To save money.
    2) To improve & speed up their own airplane technology by gaining experiences as widely as possible.
    3) To prevent the US made planes from being remotely controlled to dive* while on domestic flight at strategic Chinese targets in case of open war between China & USA.

    NB: Readers are welcome to say this is a conspiracy theory but anyone here dares to say this is not possible*?

    Can we have more 20 year forecasts? Business rarely predicts accurately a year from now.

    Makes sense since Boeing planes are manufactured in China, and assembled in Everett, WA.

    By the time Trump is through, China will buy ALL of the jets from AirBus and Boeing will be left in the cold.

    Strange China able to build fighter jet, yet still buying commercial plane from the US?

    With trump’s illegal trade war on China , none of the forecast order will go to Boeing ..

    “BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese airlines will buy 7,690 new planes worth $1.2 trillion over the next two decades to keep pace with booming consumer and business demand for air travel, Boeing Co said on Tuesday, raising a previous forecast.”

    Mich. Farmers Nervous Over China Trade Dispute

    One Michigan soybean farmer says he and others are "very nervous" about the impact of a potential trade war with China. David Williams is afraid China will retaliate, and target U.S. exports like soybean. (March 23)

    Mad Trump’s Trade war is solely for his own political interest, not for American people , trade war hurts all ..

    Is Boeing sure about that? Right now China is stepping up its aerospace industry to be more independent and less dependent on foreign aircraft makers. The just created the C919 to compete with Boeing's 737 and Airbus' A320.

    China should stop buying airplanes from the U.S. for her part in the trade war. She can buy them from Europe or Russia or even herself, only at a slower pace..
