A Few Questions About LY Fleet

Mon Sep 04, 2006 9:24 pm

El Al was about to order some Airbus or Boeing widebodies not so long ago, but now, we did not hear anything new.Will LY postpone again its order?Is it due to the war?
When will they receive their 3rd 763?
When will their 1st 763 EAJ leave the fleet?

Hi LY777,
In a press release 2 months ago ELAL said that they would put the new order on hold while continue talking to both airbus and Boeing.
EAJ contract was signed for 3 years.., the aircraft arrived in march 2004 I believe the contract will be renewed as ELAL is pleased with the 763.
EAP has been leased for 5 years and EAR will arrive in October (don't know for how long).
The 767 (both 200 and 300) will remain with ELAL until new generation aircraft will be bought (787 or 350).
BTW, ELAL paid Boeing for 787's options.

regards,
4X-ELD

It means that ELAL paid Boeing some money in advance in order to secure deliveries of the 787 deramliners in the future.
These options may or may not turn into actual orders.

They secured slot for 2010 if I am not mistaken.
