Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 4): The site also lists 1 unidentified B-767 order for 2005. Anyone know who this airplane is going too? Do we know which type of B-767 this is? B-767-300F? B-767-300ER? KC-767? E-767?
You seem to get a rush of blood and sooo excited by this 1 unidentified order~ It's only a B763. It's not life or death. And it's not sex. Or maybe it is.

I wonder if some of the unidentified 777 orders are ILFC orders for AM. Originally, there were 2 firm orders with several options. At some point in the recent past it seems that an option was firmed thus making 3 firm orders. There has been talk that AM wants more than just 3 772ER's.
That is a 767-200 with GE Engines, booked June 14th. IIRC it's the last frame for the Italian Air Force Tankers.
So no, Cloudyapple it's not a 763. That you get a "rush of blood" to post such infantile drivel without contributing to the discussion, now that's what's sad sir.
Quoting HR001 (Reply 10): From Justplanes.com:
Boeing has confirmed that Japan Airlines has ordered 1 B767-300F as well as 5 B777-300ERs. These were shown as unidentified orders on the manufacturer's website.
Why use Justplanes, when, if you check this site it had the information before that site and ATWOnline
The Unidentified situation will become clearer once we have the December update so we can see which models have been booked this month. It could be the previous 772ERs which were booked were transferred over to KLM and that 4 new 777 orders were booked UFO, perhaps ILFCs 4 773ERs to meet their CX requirement. Check reply #35 & 43 in this A.net thread for some thoughts on that idea. Good thoughts. Similarly the 737NG order could be for 20, in which case I'd say it maybe DBA who ordered them.
Not long to wait and we'll have all the models, then we'll start guessing again next year.
