Boeing has predicted a 41% increase in the market for jetliners in North America over the next couple of decades as airlines replace older planes with more fuel-efficient models. "The region's airline industry is poised for long-term, moderate growth," said Randy Tinseth, vice president of marketing at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Airlines are expected to continue focusing on capacity discipline and improving financial performance." Boeing expects demand will concentrate on single-aisle planes.
