I thought it might be interesting to note that on the day when the A3XX finally gets a "real" customer Boeing finalizes a deal for MORE FIRM aircraft in their 777 family. The 737NGs also seem to be racking up orders at an amazing pace. So much for the theory that they are "warmed over" 1960s technology.

29 September 2000


SEATTLE - Boeing Co. on Friday posted orders for 76 new jets worth $5.7
billion at catalogue prices.

The Seattle aerospace giant declined to identify the customers for the new
orders, including 59 narrow-body 737s, which carry an average list price of
$51 million each, and 16 wide-body 777s, which list at $167 million, on

Boeing also announced a sale of a Boeing Business Jet -- a modified 737 --
which lists for about $38 million.

The orders bring Boeing's total for the year to 477, although cancellations
lower its net total to 467.

Boeing is well ahead of its sales figures for 1999, when it announced just
391 new jet orders and finished behind Airbus Industrie, with 476 new
orders, in the two-horse race for supremacy in the commercial airplane

Earlier on Friday Toulouse, France-based Airbus scored a major victory over
Boeing with an order for 10 superjumbo A3XX jets and options for 15 more
from premier Asian carrier Singapore Airlines Ltd.

With spares and services thrown in, the Singapore deal was valued at $8.6
billion, according to the airline.

Boeing has now sold 350 of its popular 737s in 2000, already the third-best
year in the 35-year history of the model, the best-selling commercial jet
ever with over 4,800 cumulative orders.

The 777 is second on the 2000 order table with 52, not including commitments
from lessors International Lease Finance Corp. and GE Capital Aviation
Services to buy a total of 48 777s unveiled at the Farnborough air show in

Boeing and Airbus together posted $32 billion in sales and commitments at

CX747: These may be the firm order of GECAS 737/777 LOI from Farnborough based on the numbers.

Yes, they are. That is why I posted it under GECAS FINALIZES 76 JET ORDER. Sometimes though this ordering business can be confusing!!!
