Boeing anticipates that Latin American airlines will look at the 787 or 777 family of aircraft for their future widebody needs, and not the 747-8 or A380 superjumbos, during the next 20 years.

Speaking at the forum, Randy Tinseth, vice-president of marketing at Boeing Commercial Airplanes, says that they "see no demand for really big airplanes" in the region.

Boeing expects 340 orders for 787 or 777 size widebodies from the region's carriers through 2031.
