Exclusive - Boeing to buy directly from new 737 aircraft seat maker | Reuters

NEW YORK Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Monday it had picked a new aircraft seat supplier for its most popular jet, the 737, a move that industry experts said adds competition to dominant seat makers Zodiac Aerospace of France (ZODC.PA) and B/E Aerospace (BEAV.O).

In response to questions from Reuters, Boeing said it will buy seats directly from the new supplier, LIFT by EnCore of Huntington Beach, California - a break from the past practice of allowing airlines to purchase seats that led to some costly delays in finishing aircraft because seats did not always arrive on time.
