My column July 22 entitled Embraer counts on Boeing heft for E2 sales boost raised a few hackles in Sao Jose dos Campos, headquarters of Embraer.
It wasn't meant to. Rather, slow sales of the E-Jet E2 this year caught the attention of more than a few in the market, so I thought putting some perspective on the issue was worthwhile.
After all, sales of the Bombardier C Series were slow between the announcement of selling 50.01% of the program and consummation of the deal nearly a year later.
Such is the case with E2 sales pending consummation of the Boeing-Embraer joint venture, which has a target date of closing by year end, I wrote.
Slattery takes issue
John Slattery, CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation and CEO-designate of the JV Boeing Brasil-Commercial, said last week in an interview that E-Jet sales in the last 12 months were outstanding.
They were good. But mostly, they were for the E1.
