Boeing says disappointed with rejection on India fighter deal


Boeing Co said it was disappointed by India’s rejection of its bid for a $11 billion fighter jet deal, adding that it would mull its options after reviewing details.

“We are obviously disappointed with this outcome. Our next step is to request and receive a debrief from the Indian Air Force,” the world’s largest aerospace and defence company said in a statement on Thursday.
“Once we have reviewed the details, we will make a decision concerning our possible options,” it added, Reuters reports.

India has rejected bids from Boeing and fellow U.S. firm Lockheed Martin , shortlisting European firms instead, in a move that could sour its relationship with the United States while broadening its strategic ties with other regions.
