Excellent - and particularly long awaited - news. I wonder will political considerations now mean Air India will go for Boeing.

When do we expect the AI order to be announced?

Air India

Will Air India be loyal to Boeing or will it also follow IA, it all depends on the qouatations put forward. The lower bidder wins as was in the case of IA, Airbus offerd qoutations which were 4% lower than Boeing. The same is expected with AI probably by the min 2002. Its B777 vs the A330 ?
