Boe­ing plane deal sealed at half price

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Iran said on Sun­day it had ne­go­ti­ated to pay only about half the an­nounced price for 80 new Boe­ing air­lin­ers in an or­der that the US plane­maker had said was worth $16.6 bil­lion. Boe­ing and its Euro­pean ri­val Air­bus have both signed huge con­tracts this month to sup­ply air­lin­ers to Iran, the first such deals since West­ern sanc­tions were lifted un­der a deal to curb Te­heran’s nu­clear pro­gram.
