Here you go.....737-800

By Douglas Wong
March 7 (Bloomberg) -- Xiamen Airlines will buy 15 737-800
planes from Boeing Co. for $615 million, the Asian Wall Street
Journal reported, citing company President Wu Rongnan.
Xiamen, 60 percent owned by China Southern Airlines Co., the
country's largest carrier by fleet size, expects to take delivery
of the planes in 2006 and 2007, Wu said in the report today.
Boeing spokesman Mark Hooper couldn't confirm the sale but
said that the $41 million price tag for each plane, a discount of
37 percent, wasn't unusual, the newspaper said.
Xiamen has approval from China's Civil Aviation
Administration for the purchase, the newspaper said, citing Wu.
