http://quote.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=conews&tkr=BA:US

Boeing Co. has won an order for five 777 commercial aircraft worth about $1 billion from an unidentified customer.



Doesn't say what model... Most articles are basing it on the list price of the -300ER, may be the case?

Any guesses to who the customer is? Leasing company, perhaps? If an airline, what airline?

This is pure speculation, but it could be for one of the Chinese airlines...they seem to be on a shopping spree at the moment (see recent Airbus order).

1 billion for 5? That could also be an order for 772LRs. That aircraft´s price-tag is very high as well. Although, in Euros thats becoming cheaper and cheaper now...

Boeing's website, under the orders reports, shows that the 5 unidentified 777s are 777-300ERs. The order was posted on November 30th, so Bloomberg is a little behind.

I don't think its Aeromexico either, but I would like it to be. However, if they start servicing London, Frankfurt, and maybe Barcelona; they will need more than 3 777s

N328KF,

On the orders page, click on "User Defined Reports" at the top. Then you can select the criteria for your search. For date range, I put Jan. - Dec. 2004, and for Model No. 777. It'll then give you a list of all the customers and models ordered. This list is updated at the end of each month.

I'm not sure if this is the same order, but there is an unidentified customer for 5 777-300ERs made on 30 November 2004, as Hoya mentioned...

I posted this thread, for that "official" feeling left by the media.

Check out "USER DEFINED REPORT" found on that O&D website.

The Etihad order had yet to be firmed, so this could very well indeed be it.

I'm guessing Etihad has finally firmed up their orders for their intended 5 -300ERs proposed a couple of months ago...

Is it Etihad, everyone?

They're leasing three 777-222ERs, but they're a long way off from ordering.

That, and their recommendation for an order is still the A340 and not the T7.... but doubt that'll amount to much of anything.

SQ placed an order for the 773ER earlier this year, and it was for more then 5 frames. 13-18 I believe is what the order was for which still probably has to become firm.

This is probably the Ethiad order being firmed up.

I wonder why they publish these figures. I mean in a booming economy this is good marketing but what when they get more and more behind Airbus (or vice versa)- then it would be better to keep the orders secret like most other companies (in other industries) do.
Is there a special reason why they publish the figures or has it just become customary ?
