ANA Orders 45 Boeing Jets

Mon Jun 30, 2003 1:33 pm

URL: http://biz.yahoo.com/djus/030630/0015000010_2.html


TOKYO -(Dow Jones)- All Nippon Airways Co. (J.ANA or 9202) said Monday it has placed an order with Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA - News) for 45 small-sized jets.

All Nippon Airways, or ANA, said the order is for the single-aisle, 142-seat B737-700 aircraft, with delivery starting in December 2005.

The move is in line with ANA's aircraft purchase plan announced in early April. The company said it selected the B737-series jets for replacing its small aircraft from 2005.

ANA will discontinue use of its B737-400, B737-500 and Airbus-made A320 jets, and begin use of B737-700 and B737 next-generation models from the fiscal year starting April 2005. The company expects to post annual savings of around Y6 billion by using the B737-700 and newer models. Boeing will deliver seven jets annually.

ANA currently operates twenty-six A320s, twenty-five B737-500s and two B737- 400s. Japanese carriers have been using far more Boeing jets than Airbus aircraft, even though Airbus has stepped up its marketing efforts in Japan.

Congratulations to both Boeing and All Nippon.

Soon... there will not be a single Airbus registered in Japan.

Boeing must be happy to net a decent order like this. This more than doubles the net size of their order book to 87 aircraft for the year, 82 (or 94%) of which are 737s.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Airbus working hard to get an order in Japan - I doubt very much we will see there being not a single Airbus registered there.

Those won't be around for long. Besides for those and the ANA A320/321's, there are no other Airbus aircraft registered in Japan. JAL has already said no to the A380 (for now) and ANA probably will too. Japan is more Boeing country then the US.

JAL777 - given the delivery schedule outlined above, it will be 2009 at the earliest before all the A320s are gone (and thats working on an assumption they are the first type to leave the fleet).Presumably the larger A321s won't be going anywhere just yet (notice they aren't mentioned in the article). So there will likely be ANA Airbuses up until 2010 - by which stage I think either ANA or JAL, or likely both, will have A380s on the way.

I think Boeing are all finished announcing orders at the Paris Airshow. I'm sure Airbus would do the same if a new airshow started up in Seattle, at lets say, Boeing Field.

What for? I've been on plenty of domestic JAL and ANA 747SR flights and none of them have been anywhere near full. ANA's future aircraft structure is to consolidate the 777-200, 777-300, and 747-400 into a single type. I am pretty sure its not the A380. And as you can see, the A321's should be gone by 2005.

I don't think JAL or ANA will get the A380, of any model. I think they will both stick to the smaller (and better, in my opionion) Boeing line of 747's and 777's. Especially since ANA's American counter-part UA has no intentions of getting them either. (As far as I know)

In the "Medium Sized" field for "Future Structure", I wouldn't be surprised if the 7E7 found itself there.

Why would they want to get rid of their B744s and B777s? They are (almost) brand new.

The A320s aren't that old either.

I guess this just surprises me since I'm used to the US airline economy status, heh.

Why are you all so anti-Airbus, so Japan and Israel are some of the only countries that dont have Airbus aircraft, all others do. No loss for Airbus they've gained Qantas and Air New Zealand as new customers, Aeroflot are getting the A320's they already operate the A310, Emirates and Qatar Airways both shunned Boeing for huge Airbus orders, QR actually ditched the "superior" 777 for the A340, PIA only bought the 777 because of political reasons and US cooperation in helping them get the aircraft, perhaps much cheaper which will, never be disclosed. Eventaully JAL and ANA will have to go for Airbus to rpelace their 767 fleets unless the 7E7 actually comes out and succeeds, or will they opt for the flop 764?

Whow! There are some people (mostly Americans) that really hate Airbus. Its really sad to see. I never had those feelings against Boeing products.

Congratulations Boeing. Its good to see that there is still competition.

Airmale: I think people are making a big deal about this for the very reasons you described--Airbus has been gaining ground on Boeing lately. Boeing just won a major battle to keep their competitor out of an extremely important market. This is certainly big!

BTW: I'm confident that JAL and ANA will almost certainly not choose another aircraft over the 7E7. The 767's time will be over by the time they place orders, and the 7E7 will fit perfectly into their fleet structure. However, I think Airbus has a (slight) chance if they market other planes to the Japanese via an A380 order. This is the very reason why Qantas flies A330s today instead of more 767s.

Airmale

Because it flies farther, faster, higher, has a wider cabin and carries LD3s side by side.

The same reason that the proposed 7e7 will become market leader, but also include lower operating costs.

At this point at teh 7e7 development, ANA can suggest what features the aircraft would need for them to take it, and it can be designed to incoperate them.

Japan Air System (JAS), now a part of JAL flies 22 A300-600R and 12 A300B4 now. The Latter will be retired by 2006 but A300-600R are still in the fleet plan beyond 2006.

No, but the way things are going it will be fact. The user who originally stated this was just making a point. He wasn't trying to bash Airbus. Settle down.

Nobody is being anti anything here, it's just every time an American says something good about Boeing, or anything that doesn't favour Airbus they're accused of being "anti-airbus" or in the more extreme cases "anti-european"

Anything to try to go against the yanks eh?  Insane

vonRichtofen,

fyi,
your name-patron, the Red Baron, was known as "von Richthofen", not Richtofen. In German "Richthof" means the court were convicts were executed (nice origin, isn´t it?). "Richtofen" would mean something like "erecting an oven". One missing letter can make a huge difference!
I know this name is misspelled easily and there are lots of websites with this wrong spelling. But I know it because the Richthofen family is living in my parents neighbourhood!

Yeah I didn't discover this until after I started up this user name. I don't want to delete this name and start another. I have seen several different spellings all over the place. I thought this was the right one (hey, it's closer than a lot of the other variations!). But my exposure to the German language is very limited.

We all have our personal favourite airlines aircraft and manufacturers. Unwillingness to give ground in discussions like these is a bit frustrating. Its like people saying the A340 is a better aircraft than the triple seven. This is not true, though what the hell makes a plane better than another one anyway? Conversely, the A330 is supposed to be a better plane than the 767. Wouldnt know. Never flown one. And neither have the majority of you lot by the sounds of it.

This may be OT but i dont care its relevent here so i'll say it. Politics and Airliners. Linked. Its annoying, because in an ideal world airlines would order the best suited aircraft to their needs. Alas this is not the case. Irritating when you know that an airline is only buying a plane becasue of political pressure put upon them by people. It happens - accept it.

The problem is this.

The large faction here of "a certain type of person" that really annoys me. You know who i mean, though i doubt you know who you are.

* You think you know all about this industry, and certainly better then any airline CEO you care to name.

* Whats worse, you think everyone knows less than you, and when someone says something on here in error you smugly put that person well and truly in their place, just so everyone knows you are more knowlegable.

* You associate the AvsB thing to nationalism, which, while based in fact, has no place here.

* All that teenage high school angst that you have, you seem determined to take out on people here. If the Dalai Llama or Buddha himself said that he thought your favourite airline sucked in economy class you would flame him like Joan of Arc. Why? Its a discussion group!

* Since when has discussion meant "not accept any views that differ from my own and anyone who does not think im right is clearly a moron and I shall flame him in a vitriolic and wholly unecessary way in full view? It is not your patriotic duty to bash Airbus/Boeing. You will not go to Hell if you admit that you do kind of like such and such's product as it is kind of nice, despite being from across the Atlantic.

* There are few women on here, and those that are are for the most part not even slightly interested in you, so leave the teenage testosterone in your sock drawer, and try listening to people for a change instead of flaming them cos you like look like such a tough guy to use big words and clever insinuations....

* A wiser man than I once said that "When your mouth is open and you speak, you cannot learn anything".

* I am a Brit who likes America, is engaged to an Alaskan, and love flying Airbusses. And Boeings. And Lockheeds. And McDonnell Douglas. And Embraer. And Canadair. And Fokkers. What does this tell you about my political orientation??

NOTHING!!! ITS NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!!!

So...

To make my point,

Lets leave the nationalism at home please? You are not impressing anyone and remember, National Socialism was founded on the belief that Germans were superior and everyone else was wrong. In a spooky little microcosm, (and im not suggesting you go out and burn A320 flight manuals here) but the principle is the same. Quit trying to appear superior cos "your airline" (???) ordered the plane you like best because of where its made. Nobody is impressed. You should be happy people are ordering planes full stop. After recent events thats something good isnt it?

...Just my two dollars/euros worth.

Regards,

CHRIS MORGAN

You stated a ridiculous nonfact. There are going to be Airbusen registered in Japan for at least the next 10 years, and JAL has not announced plans to retire their A300B4-600Rs at all.

Therefore, you were clearly trying to slant the truth.

I love how the Airbus supporters have turned a 737-700 order from ANA into an Airbus post. Just to let you know, in more adult forums, the same statement was made about Airbus aircraft not being on the Japanese register in a few years. Fortunately, the Airbus fans in that forum are more mature and realize that the overall TRUTH is that Boeing has cornered the Japanese market and it doesn't look like it is going to change anytime soon.

No more than whenever Airbus signs a deal, all the Boeing supporters immediately wonder what foul play is afoot or what illegal dealings MUST have been necessary for someone to ever want to sign a deal with those evil French.

Gigneil, I couldn't agree more.
It's often impossible to discuss B (or A) without the A (or B) fans immediately jumping in.

This Boeing thread certainly wasn't hijacked by Airbus fans first. Who was the first person to mention the A word after the thread opener? JAL777.

Anyway... I'm glad to see ANA's order. The 737 must be a cash cow for Boeing.

I don't think we need to worry about ANA getting or using Airbus jets any longer, read this, as quoted from MSNBC:

"...The airline expects annual savings of about $50 million by switching to the new models because the jets are more fuel-efficient. ANA can also hope to cut costs of buying parts and training pilots with an all-Boeing fleet, ANA spokesman Yasuo Taki said."

There was a reason for the Boeing. Big grin

Right back at you...I like your posts as well.

I was answering Gigneil's question about why some of us are often times suspicious (not all the time) whenever Airbus gets some key orders. Given that company's history, I think it is more than justified and I stand by it. Hey, he brought it up.

Good for Boeing and ANA. The 737NGs are a fine choice for the ANA route structure and economics.

Regarding the winglets. . .I would think if Boeing has them pictured as part of the a/c, then ANA has probably already stated somewhere in the proposal that they will aquire "wingleted" 737NGs.

This was a huge order for Boeing, just for the simple fact, it might just be the first time that an Airline has changed an entire fleet (qty 26) of A320s to 737NGs. I personally didn't think Boeing stood a chance on this order.

Maybe Airbus didn't have the delivery positions  Smile

Actually, I think Boeing has a lot of pull in Japan. They subcontract a signficant amount of work directly to Japanese firms and GE also subs and risk shares heavily in the country. Given that the rest of the ANA fleet is all Boeing, they probably saw the B737 as a better fit. Although the Boeings require different type ratings, it is still traditional stick and rudder flying across the types.

Was ANA leasing those airplanes or will they be sold? To Boeing perhaps?

I don't think the switch has anything to do with delivery positions. Airbus was caught off guard when ANA announced their choice about three months ago. Rumor has it that ANA expedited the announcement without giving Airbus a chance to counter offer Boeing's last best offer. Airbus had once made a lot of progress in getting ANA buying Airbus planes. But ANA canceled the 343 order, quickly phased out the 321, and now is replacing the 320. I guess Airbus must be very frustrated with ANA. Airbus still has a chance to have a coup if they can get JAL order the 320 for their upcoming narrowbody order.

Good to see Boeing writing up a huge order like this one, afterall, Boeing made Airbus what it is today, thanks to the competition, without orders no Boein, without Boeing no competition, without competition no...

As mich as I like airbus, the picture posted in this thread from the 737-700 in ANA livery with winglets is so much better looking than the current A320.

BTW, Whenever JAS replaces the A300, the A330 might well be her succesor, likewise for ANA's huge 767 fleet. I'm also pretty sure that the A380 will find its' way to both, ANA and JAL's fleet. Anyone who travelled on domestic flights in Japan must have seen the huge number of flights, many many with widebodies and multiple times an hour between the same city pairs, and they dont fly empty...
