That order is more then 10 years old. Garuda also committed to the 787, they announced their intention to purchase 10 of them, 1,5 years ago. In addition they also said they would purchase 18 738 aircraft.

Back in 2005 Garuda announced that they were going to order 18 737s. Does this represent an additional 7, or an entirely new order for 25?

The numbers are getting confusing! They have taken delivery of at least 2 738's over the last year so presumably those came from the 2005 bid(?)

I think you're confusing yourself! Garuda has NEVER taken delivery of any brand new NG aircraft.

and it's getting even more confusing after this statement from Garuda's CEO TODAY on Reuters:

Satar said delivery of the lightweight Boeing 787 Dreamliner it ordered two years ago would begin in 2011. In September 2005, Garuda signed a $2 billion deal with Boeing for 28 passenger aircraft, comprising 18 narrow body 737-800s and 10 787-800s.

As far as I know the 787 order has never been inked and it's not on Boeing books...... there's only an order of 18 73G and 6 777.

After the crash I'm not surprised that GA are ordering many 738's. Here in Australia the news is advising people to keep out of Indonesia and not to transit there as their safety standards are way lower than they should be.

That is right. There are 2 B738 frames in the Garuda fleet right now (PK-GEE and PK-GEF) both of which are leased in and used to fly with some Turkish charter company. Two more leased 738 frames are expected to join the GA fleet later this year, one of which should arrive imminently.

CV747F

Yo're right. Boeing hasn't booked any 787 order from Garuda, however there is a unidentified order for 10 787-8 on Boeing's web site which is the number that Garuda says they bought.

It is entirely possible that that unidentified order is for Garuda.

I don't think the 73G order will ever get filled but they might transfer those deposits into the 738. The same with the 772ERs....they'll be rolled over into the 788 order.

That is if GA get's their act together.

Another question..how does the 25 x 738 order impact on the 18 x 738 order they said they made in 2005? Is this an addition of 7 738s to that original order or is this a whole new order of 738s (to be a total of 43 738s)?

Boeing does not have an unidentified order for 18 738s on it's web site.

well Garuda's CEO speaks of an 2005 order for 787, the above 10 UFO's are from 2006
regarding the outstanding order of 18 738 I think that are the 18 73G Boeing has on it's books
so in my opionion there this is a new order of 25 738 which has not yet been booked by Boeing in addition to the 18 alraedy ordered.

Well I hope that Boeing at elast says something now that GA CEO has let the cat out of the bag. There has been a lot of speculation about those UFO orders and who they're for (the large ones).

So that means a B738 is safer than a B734, right? - even if it is maintained by the same company??

I hate to bring this argument up (again) but I really don't think this can have anything to do with safety. Unless you are a minister in Indonesia of course.... (planes over 10 years old are unsafe and all that crap!)

Still, good luck to Garuda with the B738s - it is always nice to see the B737's success continuing.

They probably signed an LoI or a MoU in 05 but signed the final purchase agreement in 2006.

Obviously we don't klnow all the details until Boeing officially says something.

Garuda is one of those airlines where its nearly impossible to keep track of orders, and even once you have figured out what the airline exactly has on order with a manufacturer, the actual number of airplanes and the variants of a type actually delivered rarely agrees with what was ordered in the first place. (Phillippine Airlines is another one of those carrires where its very difficult to track orders and fleet.) Its unclear exactly why this is the case - financial issues, governmental issues, political climate and the like seem to effect orders and delivery of new aircarft. AIrcraft orders at Garuda seem to be announced, finalized, then revised, deferred, renegotiated and frequently cancelled so often.

Unless and until Boeing makes some type of announcement about a new Garuda order or a revision of existing Garuda orders, we really dont know what it going on. Garuda currently has outstanding orders for 777s (ordered but deferred...at some point this order must be addressed), 787s (was the order ever finalized?....I am not convinced that the UFO order for ten 787s on Boeings books is for Garuda), 73Gs (18 airframes...but Boeing has been using the 73G category for 737NGs that are ordered but the variant selection has not yet finalized....think CO, for example, so the 18 73Gs could end up being 18 738s), and now 738s (25 new orders or does the 25 now announced by GA incorporate the 18 airplanes announced a while ago?) There is a lot going on here, and we are talking about a lot of airframes.....up to 53 airplanes not including the 777s....its unlikely that Garuda is in the position to acquire so many new airplanes.

My guess.....and its only a guess:

Garuda is ordering 25 738s in total and will order 10 787s in total...making 35 new airplanes. Everything else that was previously announced will be incorporated into this one order and Boeing will then clean up its books and records. If the 35 airplanes actually get delivered to Garuda is a whole other story.

Isn't it possible for Garuda having B787's on order via a lessor? I mean, it is possible that they didn't order them themselves.

According to this Bloomberg article, you may be right.

Quote:
Garuda, which in September 2005 agreed to lease 10 Boeing 787-800s and 18 Boeing 737s, said it has since decided to purchase the aircraft. The company has paid $23 million to Boeing, Satar said.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...=conews&tkr=BA:US&sid=a1jJ8qAO2OEw

So it seems that this is a new order.

yet no mention of a 10x788 order though.....simply an increase from 18x738 leased to 25x738 bought direct.

That is a direct result of the ever changing management teams in charge of the airline. As it goes, the current CEO has been at the helm relatively long for recent Garuda standards, but a change of management has been rumored already. Every management team likes to think of itself that it has to reinvent the hot water and hence this wishy washy situation, not only in terms of orders but in terms of just about every corporate policy. Whatever happens to the current management, there is surely gonna be a management shake up in 2 years from now, as there will be general elections that will see a new government and thus a new management team for every government owned company.

HB-IWC,
Would the timing of theses B738s have anything to do with the proposed ban in Indonesia of aircraft
more than 10years old? GA would stand to lose quite a few B733 and B734 if that is enforced.
With the B738 having a longer range, does this mean GA will now reinstitute some of their Intl
destinations that were cancelled??

Hi,

Good to finally here some news about Garuda. Actually, to tell you the truth I've been kind of wondering what happened to them. They axed a lot of their European destinations and haven't heard anything about their fleet. Last I heard they were going to get rid of their 747's. Is that still the case? It's good to hear good news out of Indonesia for a change!  Smile After the accident a few weeks back and all the negative press Indonesia's been getting.

Cheers,
Imad
