Hi,

as per daily business newspaper „Puls Biznesu” special internal committee checked the correctness of LOT board of directors recommendation regarding long haul fleet.
That means that the recommendation will be presented to the supervisory board for approval, most likely on August 2nd session.

The daily says that the recommendation is to purchase Boeing 787 aircrafts.

They talk about six planes.

LOT has currently 4 767-300ER (the fourth one is just being leased) and 2 767-200ER.

LOT are interested in about 6.

Are the 6x UFO B787 orders for LOT or another airline?

I remember on the boeing web-site a 6x order but with no airline mentioned for it. Would this be LOTs order

Although French air giant Airbus had been lobbying LOT hard to pick its A350 or A330 model, LOT's deputy president, Edouard Ullmo, said that the Polish firm ceased negotiations with the French company as far back as April.

LOT's spokesman, Leszek Chorzewski, refused to provide any information confirming the news, claiming that "the company will comment on the choice of the fleet after the final decision is made," which will take place at the beginning of August at the earliest. The value of the six airplanes is about $500 (z³.1,702) million.


http://www.wbj.pl/?command=article&id=27578

$500/6 =$83 mil. The list price as I remember is $120 mil.

I'm not saying Boeing is dumping the 787 but this price after >200 orders being placed seems a significant investment for Boeing.

I doubt those are for LOT since there is no final decision yet.

Who the hell knows... First they were going to announce it at the end of 2004, then they moved it to February 2005, then to June, now August... I'm wondering if Boeing is still holding those 2008 delivery slots for LOT...

Now when August comes, look for board to vote no! Remember, there are board members from gov, and ex swissair.... Hell I bet they will not make it official untill december, or maybe next year.

The article says ABOUT $500 million. And unless you've personally seen a signed contract, you have nothing to talk about.



Keepin' it real.

After all those pressures from both sides LOT management seems to be affraid to take any decision so they just postpone it by month, month, another month etc. Whichever way but make any decision LOT!

On the subject of 787 orders, does anyone know why Boeing shows the CO order as 5? I thought they ordered 10 firm?

Oh no, Airbus is barking (again) that LOT is allegedly in the wrong for not evaluating its offers...

Puls Biznesu quoted Edouard Ullmo, Airbus deputy CEO, as saying: 'LOT management in its letter dated April 26 told us it would not take into consideration Airbus' offer any longer and recommend the supervisory board choose the Boeing 787.

'We corrected our offer several times but the airline declined to view it... We are surprised that no independent specialist has been asked to evaluate proposals,' Ullmo said.

>> On the subject of 787 orders, does anyone know why Boeing shows the CO order as 5? I thought they ordered 10 firm?

An order is not firm until it appears on the Orders section of Boeing.com. Anything prior to this stage is a commitment or MoU/LoI. At the end of 2004, CO stated an intention to place 10 firm aircraft, but now that the order has actually been firmed, they decided to only order five.

Perhaps financial considerations are playing a roll, though I would expect CO to have atleast 5 options on stand-by...

EK (looking at it but will probably go A350)
Finnair
LH
possible CX

That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

27 Cancidas : anyone here have a pic of what the 787 would look like in our livery?
28 Dutchjet : I hope that LOT can finalize its order for the 787, simply because the 787 is the aircraft that LOT wants for its future longhaul needs. A couple of m
