(Reuters) – Airbus’ sales chief when asked about rival Boeing announcing orders at the Farnborough Airshow said it was time for the U.S. planemaker to regain some ground.

“I prefer to speak about Airbus than Boeing. I do want to say it was about time for Boeing to pick up some steam. And that’s all I’ll say to that,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus’ chief commercial officer.
