FI: FJ Close To 789 Order

Mon Mar 13, 2006 9:36 pm

From this week's electronic version so not available yet. However, the article said FJ was close to ordering 5 firm and 3 purchase rights for 789/359. It is believed the 789 is heavily favoured, which wouldn't surprise, as 47% owner of FJ is QF. Delivery from 2011.

Nice to see orders for the 789, but who is FJ? Is that Australian Airlines?

Mouse-over does the trick. Air Pacific, Fiji islands.

Sorry.. I'm at school and mouse-over doesn't work here... I'm surprised to see Air Pacific. Good for them, though-- I've heard good things about them and it's nice to see them in a place where they can order new airplanes.

That would be great news for Boeing. Although the number is small, every order counts!

Ok...I won't count my chicks until they're hatched.

Quoting Dalecary (Thread starter):
47% owner of FJ is QF

So FJ won't choose an engine till QF does?

Would be great. Any idea when they might announce a winner?
