Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- International Lease Finance Corp., the
biggest aircraft lessor, may buy as many as 20 Boeing Co. 7E7
airplanes, said the leasing company's chairman Mr Steven Udvar-Hazy.
``We're in active discussions with Boeing,'' he said. ``They
are coming in with a new offer, and we hope it will progress as
the weeks go by.''
Udvar-Hazy said in the interview that he is also in talks with
Airbus to purchase 20 A350 planes.
All out there now, he also speaks of Options for both models in the interview. Given the conservative stance of ILFC & GECAS towards ordering without having placed the airplanes since 9/11 It'd be interesting to see if they announce who they'll be Leasing to when they order.
