AO PAULO (MarketWatch) -- Brazil's no-frills airline Gol Linhas Aereas (GOL) placed a firm order for 20 Boeing (BA) 737-800NG jets, raising the total number of firm orders to 87, the company said in a press release Monday.

Congrats to GOL and Boeing!

I think this is probably one of the UFO orders but that will be confirmed by Boeing (probably today).


That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

That's what I was thinking--previously reported as a UFO.

Amazing growing, one will replace PR-GTD lost last month, but the other 19 aircrafts are just because the market will need more.

My big question is that Brazilian Airports (despite some few options) and Air space, keep space for such growing (Tam expect 127 planes, Gol 121, Varig 60, WebJet 20, Ocean Air, 35, BRA 20....)... for sure we will have pax!

And we will see very soon Lan Brazil !
