Garuda Indonesia and Hainan Airlines of China have both announced Boeing buys, including orders for 18 Boeing 787s.
Garuda says it will add 10 Boeing 787-8s and 18 Boeing 737s, the latter for delivery starting next year with the 787s coming online starting in 2011. The order reflects changes to a previously announced order for six Boeing 777-200ERs, none of which have been delivered.
