Boeing made more planes than any other manufacturer for five years in a row. Bruce Whitfield interviews Boeing's J Miguel Santos.

Our goal is to remain ahead of the competition… We are the number one commercial producer… by the number of airplanes delivered in a year…

J Miguel Santos, Boeing International

Airliner design is redesigning.

They must of course be bigger, stronger and faster, but also more efficient and comfortable.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Boeing International Managing Director for Sub-Saharan Africa J Miguel Santos about the science of airliners.

Did you know?

  • Boeing delivered an industry record 763 commercial airplanes in the past financial year. It has produced more airplanes than any other manufacturer for five years in a row.

  • The company has an order backlog of 5864 airplanes (it’ll take seven years to catch up).

  • Boeing’s 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in its history. It has 4300 orders from 92 customers.

  • It estimates the commercial airplane market will grow to around US$2.8 trillion over next 10 years.

  • Boeing expects an airplane market of 42 700 units over the next two decades.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

J Miguel Santos, Boeing International

Our philosophy is that the pilot is ultimately in control of the aircraft…

J Miguel Santos, Boeing International

If the plane is maintained properly, it can last for a long time. The US Navy has airplanes still in operation that are 45 years old…

J Miguel Santos, Boeing International

We recently started a competition for autonomous vehicles… We also have an internship programme… applications close tomorrow… This year we have a couple of interns from Wits… We’re constantly look for new talent… We’re not an American company, we’re a global company…

J Miguel Santos, Boeing International

If we start taking out a lot of seats, the fares will have to go up…
