IN THE SHADOWS: Airbus got more orders in what has been a subdued performance at the Farnborough Airshow, ahead of a big deal between Boeing and United Airlines.
TAKING OFF: The European aircraft manufacturer booked a potential $6.35 billion worth of orders. The four deals, if completed, take Airbus' total by the fourth day of the U.K. airshow to $16.9 billion for a total of 115 aircraft.
FLYING HIGH: United Airlines is buying 150 Boeing 737s to replace older planes. The order would be worth more than $14 billion at list prices, although airlines like United don't pay list prices.
