Boeing executives met with Bamboo Airways on Friday to discuss terms on the Vietnamese airline buying 777-9 aircraft.
Currently their is no direct service from Vietnam to the US and Bamboo wants to start one as soon as 2021.
It already has 787’s but doesn’t feel they’re sufficient for its planned services.
If such a deal were to happen, it would be the first new order for the type in several years, which other than its initial handful of customers hasn’t sold particularly well. More than half those ordered are from Emirates
