Boeing knew the Paris Air Show would be slow, but this may have been worse than they expected. On day one of the show, Boeing did not announce a single new order for any of its airplanes, while Airbus recorded orders and options for 123 planes, according to the aviation consulting firm IBA.iQ.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg admitted to CNBC that this air show would not be about orders, but instead be an opportunity for his company to reassure customers and suppliers that Boeing is making progress getting the grounded 737 Max back in the air.

"We'll get it back in the air when it's safe — that is the most important thing here," Muilenburg told CNBC.

Boeing did announce General Electric's aircraft leasing division, GECAS, will convert a previous order of 10 737-900 planes into freighter models.
