Air Canada B-777 / B-787 Order

Sun Nov 20, 2005 8:36 am

The AC orders for the B777s and 787 -- are they going to be leased or is Air Canada going to own the planes themselves?

Boeing has the order listed, so I guess they're going to own them.

From what I've heard in conference calls etc, AC will own them, however they have yet to decide how they will finance them. From what I understand it will be a mix of debt financing and capital leasing (which is different from a lease from ILFC et al).
