Boeing picks 15 potential sites to build 777X

Aviation analyst Richard Aboulafia of the Teal Group expressed skepticism Saturday that Boeing would choose a greenfield site — a completely new location with no experience of airplane manufacturing. “That’s just really a bad idea,” said Aboulafia. “You are adding multiple layers of risk both in terms of workforce and infrastructure.”

777X still makes sense in Everett, analysts say

777X still makes sense in Everett, analysts say

“There’s no economic argument that I can think of for leaving Puget Sound,” said Richard Aboulafia, an aerospace analyst with Teal Group, a Fairfax, Va.-based consultant. The 777X is hugely important to Boeing’s future in the commercial airplane industry, where it faces competition now from Airbus with Russia and China looking to get more market share in the next decade, experts say.

After formally unveiling the plane on the opening day of the Dubai Air Show, Boeing announced airline orders for the 777-8X and 777-9X worth nearly $100 billion at list price. After Boeing’s experience with the 787, which saw three years of delay before the first delivery, the company’s margin of error for delivering the 777X is “between zero and none,” Aboulafia said. Everett and Puget Sound offer the least production risk, noting its trained workforce, developed infrastructure and state support, and none of that is going to change in three months, he said.

Asiana passengers look to sue airline, Boeing over crash

Aviation experts expressed surprise at the announcement of a planned lawsuit, saying it may be premature before the National Transportation Safety Board completes its investigation, which could take more than a year. “This is one of the more unusual things I’ve heard,” said Richard Aboulafia, an aerospace analyst with Teal Group Corp., a Virginia research firm. “You don’t hear of much success with cases like these, particularly involving an aircraft with such a stellar safety record.”

Dreamliner glitches giving Boeing a black eye

Dreamliner glitches giving Boeing a black eye

Electrical problems and fuel leaks have plagued the new Boeing plane model recently. On Monday, an empty Japan Airlines 787 in Boston caught fire. On Tuesday, a fuel leak forced a different Japan Airlines 787 to cancel takeoff and return to the gate before ultimately completing its trip to Tokyo. "We're getting to a tipping point, where they go from needing to rectify problems to doing major damage control to the image of the company and the plane," said Richard Aboulafia, a defense and aerospace analyst with Teal Group, a consulting firm based in Fairfax, Va. "While they delivered a large and unexpected number of 787s last year, it's possible that they should have instead focused on identifying glitches and flaws, rather than pushing ahead with volume production."

Trade Tiffs with China Heating Up

Trade Tiffs with China Heating Up

Beijing will tread carefully in punishing Boeing over sales of Patriot missiles to Taipei. Near term, it will tilt more purchases by state-controlled carriers away from the U.S. aircraft manufacturer to Airbus, but Airbus lacks the capacity to meet all of China's long-range civil aviation needs. And there's another consideration, as aerospace consultant Joel Johnson of the Teal Group Corp. explains: "A little over half their fleet is Boeing. If they retaliate against (Boeing) aircraft parts, they're only screwing their own airlines."

Missile Policy Likely Blow to Boeing, Boon to Raytheon

Missile Policy Likely Blow to Boeing, Boon to Raytheon

Boeing had been slated to manage the construction and installation of 10 ground-based interceptors in Poland that were part of the Bush administration’s original plans. “The losers are clear,” said Phil Finnegan, of the defense and aerospace research firm Teal Group. “Boeing was going to develop that site, and obviously that’s not going to happen.”

Northrop, EADS Tanker Win Sparks Controversy in U.S.

"The last bastion of the losing protectionist is to wave the bloody 'Buy America' shirt," said analyst Joel Johnson of the Teal Group. "It tells you they don't have another argument -- e.g., the (Northrop) product was newer, more capable and less risky."

At Boeing, shock — and then anger

He said the decision to have Northrop and EADS build the new tanker would be difficult to overturn if an appeal occurred. Richard Aboulafia of the Teal Group in Fairfax, Va., said the decision was not “what anyone expected” because Boeing had the home team and incumbent advantage. He said there is very little historical precedent that a protest would result in overturning an award.

Teledesic, Boeing Negotiate Details Of Satellite Network — Project Watchers Speculate Price Tag Could Skyrocket

Teledesic, Boeing Negotiate Details Of Satellite Network — Project Watchers Speculate Price Tag Could Skyrocket

If Teledesic is to one day offer competitive prices to customers of the high-speed computer network, it must keep costs down now. But Marco Caceres, a space-industry analyst with The Teal Group in McLean, Va., says industry sources have told him that Boeing is projecting the satellites could cost $35 million apiece. Teledesic wants to pay $20 million each. If Caceres’ numbers are accurate, for example, the total project cost – including launching the satellites – could jump from the $9 billion target to between $13 billion and $15 billion. Caceres said that by industry standards, Teledesic’s $9 billion goal is too ambitious. “Pricing is not an exact science, by any means,” he said. “But I cannot believe these guys are not expecting the price would eventually go up.”
