"FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW – July 18, 2008 – Uzbekistan Airways has selected Pratt & Whitney PW4000-94” engines to power an order for new Boeing 767 aircraft"

"The agreement, which is subject to approval of the Uzbekistan government, includes installed engines for four firm Boeing 767 aircraft."

"Deliveries for the new PW4000-94” engines are planned to begin in 2013."

The Boeing website says that Uzbekistan Airways have ordered 6 x 767-300ER and all have been delivered. There's no reference to a new order for four more.

Questions:

1. Is this in part compensation for the late delivery of 787s? (But Uzbekistan Airways have only 2 787s on order. Four 767s seems a lot by way of compensation.)

2. Deliveries from 2013?! So the 767 will still be in production five years from now? Interesting.

With the pending USAF tanker deal, the 767 could very well be in production for another decade.

I did wonder if this order was an expression of confidence on the part of Boeing!  Wink

They may just feel that four more 767s are a good fit for their fleet and the two 787s would be for either new longer-range routes or for one route that has seen passenger traffic growth.

With the current backlog and production rate, they have about four to five years worth of orders. Even with the production rate rising, Boeing may have a number of new 767 orders in negotiation that, when consummated, would push the backlog even later.

I hadn't realised that. Weren't Boeing mulling the closure of the 767 line back in about 2006? Who'd have thought it would still be going in 2013 - and beyond?  Big grin

Suits me. My current tally of just 18 767 flights (on Piedmont, Delta, Air New Zealand, USAir, Ansett, KLM, British Airways, Kenya Airways and All Nippon) needs to be worked on. (Though I'm not sure how soon I'll be flying to Tashkent...  Wink)

It was a UTC (P&W) press release!

Correct. But if PW announce that they'll be hanging PW4000s on a new 767 wing in 2013 we assume that Boeing has undertaken to build them!  Wink
