Winning business from Walsh also gives Boeing the satisfaction of converting a loyal Airbus customer. While IAG has a mixed fleet on long-haul routes — consisting of Boeing Dreamliners, Airbus As and some A double-deckers — it uses no Boeing models on short-haul flights, having built that operation entirely around Airbus and some smaller Embraer aircraft. IAG ordered a mix of the Max 8, which seats as many as passengers in a two-class configuration, and the larger Max 10, with room for about passengers. It will use the aircraft predominantly for its Vueling and Level low-cost operations, as well as its British Airways fleet serving London Gatwick Airport.
Low-cost specialist Ryanair Holdings was previously the biggest Max buyer in Europe, with a commitment for units.

The shutdown, along with a scheduled pay freeze, plans to automate some federal jobs and a proposed downsizing of the workforce comes at a time when the government needs younger workers, especially in tech.
According to the Partnership for Public Service, about 6 percent of federal employees are under 30 years old, and five times as many full-time federal technology workers are over 60 as are under Today's students aren't necessarily turned off to careers in public service. A survey of more than 80, college students conducted by the market research firm Universum found that 14 percent of respondents preferred a career in the public sector -- the third most popular choice after healthcare and entertainment.
But collegiate aspirations and the cold, hard reality of shutdowns and furloughs are two different things. Don Kettl, professor and academic director of the University of Texas' LBJ Washington Center and former dean of School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, said in addition to "deeply" damaging the current workforce's morale, "there are lots of down-the-line effects that flow from shutdowns.
