Boeing's Order Summary For 8/30/05

Sat Sep 03, 2005 4:42 am

Boeing updated it's order page for 8/30/05:
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm

787 for Air China (15) and Shanghai Airlines (9) but I'm not sure about the others. Also more UFO orders for the 747.

Unidentified 747 are probably All Nippon Cargo

Quoting Keesje (Reply 1):

Nippon Cargo have 3 undelivered 744Fs on order. FI recently reported that they have ordered 4 more and are likely to order more to replace their "classic" fleet shortly. A GE press release seems to support this with the following;

EVENDALE, OHIO-September 1, 2005 - Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) has selected GE CF6-80C2 engines to power four Boeing 747-400F aircraft. The engine deal is valued at more than $150 million. Aircraft delivery will begin in 2007.

So it may well be that the 6 UFO 744s listed are in fact the 6 for Jade. 3 via a German bank and 3 direct purchase. Next week we should know as Boeing will list the model with their monthly update. It would appear that NCA have more to book.

Only 6 unidentified 787's. I guess that means TAP hasn't made the decision yet  Smile
