Sat Sep 03, 2005 4:42 am

Boeing updated it's order page for 8/30/05:

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

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
