Don't see any other post on this so. . .

From the Boeing news webpage:

SYDNEY, Aug. 13, 2002 - Australian flag-carrier Qantas Airways has ordered four additional Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes to join its initial 737-800 fleet of 15. The four new twinjets, due for delivery between May and July of next year, are worth approximately $US240 million at list prices.

Since January, Qantas has introduced the 15 winglet-equipped Next-Generation 737-800s to Australian domestic routes alongside its existing fleet of 38 Classic 737s.

First deliveries of the Qantas 737-800s were achieved only 100 days after contract signature. These early airplanes already were in production as part of an order placed by Qantas oneworld alliance partner American Airlines. At the time, Qantas also took purchase rights on another 60 Boeing 737s of unspecified models.

"We have been very pleased with the integration of the Boeing 737-800 into our fleet," said David Forsythe, Qantas executive general manager - Aircraft Operations. "It has been one of the smoothest introductions of a new type, undoubtedly helped by high levels of commonality with our existing Boeing 737s."

Good news for the folks at Boeing in what has been a bad year for commercial aviation.

Yes, I completely agree with you LMP737. It's also good news for the winglet people, I forget their name.

Hawker DeHavelland Australia (a subsidiary of Boeing) is the manufacturer of the winglets, I believe.

Aviation Partners of Seattle makes the blended winglet for the 737.

Does anyone know if these four new orders will be taken from AA's delivery slots like QF's current fleet of 15 738s were? I look at the Boeing website today, and it shows AA having 118 orders for the 738. So, if my math is correct, it should read 103 orders after those 15 were delivered to Qantas, then reduced it again another 4 to 99 after these new orders are fulfilled. Does this make sense? Maybe AA doesn't want those 19 airframes/delivery slots anymore after today's news. Just speculating here. Regards.

LMP737 - I know aviation partners designed it, but I was sure that they were manufactured by HdH in Australia - I remember reading at the time that that was part of the reason Qantas purchased the winglets. Perhaps I misread something or (more likely) the media misrepresented it? I can't find anything at either Boeing's or Aviation Partners' respective sites, and I can't even find a website for HdH.
