No mention of the type of aircrafts, but from previous reports it looked like they had short listed the A330 and the B767-400ER----

Are these aircrafts available in the Lease market--does'nt look like it

IC has made these plans several times, it will be hard to get 763s and A330s, 9W as we all know is rushing to pick up the last available quality MCLR aircraft.

Btw, what's the latest with the Terminal IB's makeover? What improvements are being made/timetable? Thanks.

Any B767 is going to be used, unless they move fast.

U can virtually rule out B 764s!!!

They havent decided as yet what aircraft they would prefer...let alone short list.

I would prefer seeing them get A 330-200s.

I think the only aircraft that are possibly available are 763s ex-UA.

There's no way for them to lease 764ERs... and as much as I love the A332, it would be incredible to finally see a foreign 764ER operator!

Are there any 763's from UA? I know there are some old 762's...ex UA



I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

I'm not so sure about that one, Air Canada has dug up 16 767 from various sources and I would imagine many of them are EX-UA metal.

Short of sounding mean ...... it's all well and good that the IC board of directors decide they want new planes...... but their hands are tied and they have no future if things stay the way they are now.

New planes great. ..... let's hope they get the opportunity to chart their own direction instead of having their arms twisted by our pals in the government.

Wouldn't it be a good idea for Boeing to make an offer of 767-400ER's so attractive that they couldn't resist? With the possibility of the Air Force tanker business still out there, maybe Boeing could make a deal that keeps the line going a little longer with the hope that they can still get the tanker business rather than just shutting it down prematurely like they did with the MD-11 and maybe 757 where there was interest in the product after the fact! I don't know their internal numbers, but seems to me that there is a demand for promptly available aircraft in the 767/A330 size range and the near-term A330 production seems to be pretty much spoken for. So, why can't Boeing get some 767 orders for prompt delivery (within 12 mos) to take advantage? I read that they only produce 8 767's a year at the moment, surely they can bump that up to 12 or 15 rather quickly and take advantage of a market opportunity. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about, but there sure seems to be an opportunity presenting itself.

Total Chaos & Confusion.
Should be completed by June 2006 though.
