Thanks 777ER good to see confirmation from Boeing after the initial reports from Morocco seemed to indicate that the option had been exercised. So 4 + 1 for RAM, which is what they origiinally stated, is what they've firmed. As an aside, AI should sign for their 20 this week or next.

This order was officially on Boeing's site last week. Wonder why the official announcement was delayed till today. Just curious. Great news nonetheless.

I think CX might have had something to do with it last week, after all, they did steal the headlines!

On AI, no problem, just remember that it is India we're talking about here so I may yet be wrong.

Could it be that this news was release today to make up for possible bad news from Australia?  Yeah sure
