Moroccan flagship carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) said on Monday it would soon start talks with Boeing for the purchase of up to five long-haul 787 aircraft, in a deal estimated at USD$790 million.

"RAM's board decided to start talks with Boeing soon after the withdrawal of Airbus from our tender," a RAM senior official said.
"We expect to reach an agreement in September. The talks will be for four long-haul aircraft with the possibility of buying a fifth plane."

"We are looking at the 787 Dreamliner which offers major advantages to our company," he added, citing lower fuel consumption and the long experience of RAM's technical staff with Boeing aircraft.

Airbus failed to make a bid by the July 15 deadline, which RAM had postponed twice upon demand from the European plane maker, RAM has said.

I guess Airbus is picking its battles right now. Boeing seems to be racking up a fair amount of these smaller orders with the 787. This falls right into Boeing's point-to-point marketing scheme, with lots of smaller carriers building new fleets of mid-size long range aircraft.
