B/E Aerospace: "Based on our record backlog, our expectation of continued growth in passenger travel and higher levels of wide-body aircraft deliveries beginning in 2011, we expect strong full-year 2011 earnings per diluted share growth of approximately 25% to approximately USD1.90-USD1.95 per diluted share. Looking further ahead and taking into consideration our record backlog, the expected robust widebody delivery cycle beginning in 2011 and continued healthy demand growth for passenger travel, we expect continued strong growth in earnings per share for the next few years,” Amin Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
