I thought it might be Gulf Air. Don't they do some aircraft leasing from ILFC?

First Major Leasing Company to Announce 787 Order Cites Broad Airline Demand


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Boeing
Company (NYSE: BA) and International Lease Finance Corp. (ILFC) today
announced a firm order for 20 787 Dreamliners with four additional options.
The order is valued at approximately $2.7 billion at list prices. Deliveries
are scheduled to begin in January 2010.

ILFC is the first leasing company to be announced as a 787 customer. The
airplanes were previously acknowledged on the Boeing Web site, attributed to
an unidentified customer.

"The 787 will meet the demand we expect from our airline customers for the
breakthrough passenger comforts and operating efficiencies of the Dreamliner,"
said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, chairman and chief executive officer - ILFC. "This
also adds the newest member of the Boeing product line to our fleet, building
on our nearly 30-year partnership with Boeing as the largest lessor of Boeing
airplanes."


Note, they didn't get 2008 delivery slots which hd previously been reported
