Aeroflot has cancelled its order for 22 Boeing 787s, the carrier's deputy general director for strategy and alliances Giorgio Callegari confirms.

They finally figured out that they have no passengers on long thin routes. Any given day more people want to go to Timbuktu than Moscow.

Putin's aggression into the affairs of former Soviet Republics will only increase sanctions against Russia, and many see increased sanctions that will cripple their ability to trade internationally.

Boeing will have no problem selling the planes to those who can make money with them. I would venture engineers are relieved that they will not have to support planes in Moscow. I remember a raffle where the top prize was one week in Moscow, and second prize was two weeks in Moscow.

I'm kinda like the other post down here. Don't Airlines usually order at Air Shows? Maybe Putin wanted to make a point.

Sanctions go both ways :(

I guess they want to continue the Russian tradition of using the least fuel efficient aircraft possible. The A350's is a far better fit for them to carry on this tradition than the 787!!!
That's what I'm thinking. The Russian/Us relationship is steadily heading down the toilet. So this last week the U.S. Says it may send heaven weapons to Poland, etc. the 787 cancelation is purely political.
