Boeing will continue to struggle

Boeing will continue to struggle 18 September, 2016

Boeing is to take legal action against Denmark’s decision of fighter jets. In June, Denmark decided to replace its ageing fleet of F-16s with 27 Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II fighters in a deal valued at $3.02 billion. Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and Eurofighter’s Typhoon model were also in the running for the order. Upon Denmark’s final decision, Boeing had submitted a request for the Danish Defence Ministry to provide all materials related to the fighter procurement evaluation and decision announced in June. The company claims that the ministry’s evaluation of the competitors was fundamentally flawed and inaccurately assessed the cost and capability of the F/A-18 Super Hornet.
