Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 6): My definition of a Vaporware order is an order from an airline that is either very small or brand new that orders a s-load of planes, and then you never hear from them again.

Lion Air headquarter is in Jakarta. Presently. Lion Air holds fifty domestic routes including all of the high volume routes which have been confirmed by the Indonesian government and has the destinations to and from the Asia Pacific region.

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- PT Lion Mentari Airlines, Indonesia's biggest budget carrier, has obtained $3.7 billion in loans to fund the purchase of 60 planes from Boeing Co., Bisnis Indonesia reported, citing a company official.
For full financing details I suggest you place a call to the Export-Import Bank, the one owned and operated by the Government of the USA. I've no doubt they would be more than willing to provide you with the financing they have arranged for Lion Air. What? With you being a Federal Taxpayer and all, surely you deserve an answer, no?
Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 9): JetBlue had major investors and came together rather quickly
The U.S. Governments money is more highly rated than that of Mr George Soros whom was one of the seed investors in JetBlue
Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 2): Anyone have any details on when the first 900ER will role out?
The caveats in those loans indicate that Lion Air will take delivery of their first 739ER in May 2007. If not a 739ER it will be a 738.
Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 12): No, because a Google search for LionAir Investors brings back very little information
When it comes to financing a Credit Risk such as that of said operator. There is a whole lot more to the world than Google, I suggest you use it. Here's a starter, The International Finance Review. Good hunting.
That's a bit rich isn't it? You've been mocking Lion Air this whole thread despite admitting you know little about them. Oh and a Google search is yet to be the definitive in information gathering...yet.

I dont know where I mocked them but whatever you say. If I was going to mock it would look something like "Isn't New Zealand an Australian state?"
See the difference?
I am glad that LionAir is going to be getting these planes, and I can't wait to photograph them @ BFI.
I find it odd that so many small airlines are planning such explosive growth. Another example os the head of Air Asia saying he wants to have 400 planes (in what seems like a very short period of time).
: YES, you are so absolutely right... There was an article in the news recently about their interest... Glad you retain these details...
: You are most welcome Respectfully, that could be construed as a two-way street sir. Besides, if my tax $$$ were going to that country, which they are
: I like the Daily Show's description: It's Australia's Canada...
: I think that if you had left the "Vaporware" comment out and simply asked for the help of others in determining whether or not the financing was arra
: If Lion Air takes up all the options from the 739ER order , their fleet of those aircraft alone will be as large as Garuda's all together (mid 50's).
