Boeing And Etihad Airways Close Deal For Five 777-

Sat Dec 18, 2004 4:39 am

This must be the 5 773ERs that was posted on Boeing's order sheet a couple of weeks ago

Maybe not....

When Boeing made their statement on SQ's order they said that total 773ER sales were now 104. They have 81 booked already (including the 5 UFO) add SQ's 18 and it's 99. If Etihad is the UFO order then there are another 5 which Boeing know of and we don't. Maybe the UFO order is actually for another carrier but I guess we'll need to wait until the next update of Boeing's order site to see whether it remains and another 5 are added for Etihad. Hope that makes sense and feel free to correct me but I feel the UFO aren't actually Etihad.

"Hope that makes sense and feel free to correct me but I feel the UFO aren't actually Etihad."

As you say, we'll have to wait until Thurs. However, I tend to agree with you. Normally, when a carrier signs a contract which is then listed by Boeing as being UFO, then later announces the order publically, Boeing's press release usually has a disclaimer stating something along the lines of "this order has previously been accounted for under an unidentified buyer," or some other similar statement. There is no such disclaimer in today's press release.

Therefore, the Nov. 30th UFO could be AF's rumored add-on order.

Thank you, when I first saw 104 mentioned I was stumped, wasn't aware AF were considering a follow on and was convinced the UFO were Etihad and that I couldn't count! 2 more 772ER from KLM was a pleasant surprise too.  Smile

There are 6 unidentified B777 orders on Boeing's website, maybe Thai's order ?
The Etihad order is new then.
Flanders + Wallonnia + Brussels = the UNITED STATES of BELGIUM

Very nice to see this order finally being firmed up!

We are still waiting for the Thai order for 6 777-200ER to be signed; hopefully before the end year ?

The Unidentified Order for 6 777s are all for 777-300ERs.

The number maybe 31 if EY's order is actually new. You need to add 2 more for KLM and 6 more for Thai assuming both orders are signed and booked this year.
