Deliveries before the end of April, I'm guessing it is already announced but i can't find anything about leasing from BOC for AC? The Article implies that the contract was just signed this week so maybe it IS new, very cool if so, those 77Ws look great in minty fresh.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

If this is new it will mean 20 777's in service by October of this year and one more leased version coming next April from ILFC. I would imagine that AC won't be exercising as many of the 18 options they have left with Boeing for the 777. The other option is that the company is purchasing two of the 777's already owned by AC and leasing them back to AC.
