What LOIs Really Mean

Thu Jul 06, 2000 12:58 pm

Last month we were discussing LOIs and what they really mean. While I understand that they do legally show a carriers interest in an airframe, it does not mean tthat they will order it. Here are two posts from dealing with ILFC ordering A3XXs.

"Thank you, thats all I was saying. While ILFC is interested in the A3XX, there have been no orders by the company. Currently I am interested in buying an Audi A4 this fall but that doesn't mean I have already purchased it. You never know what could happen!"

"Good choice, the A4 is a nice car... (I'll add you to the order totals) got one myself"

So after signing an LOI with Audi and being counted to the orders total it is a done deal. Just as some people and the media are portraying recently.

I thought you would all like to know that on delivery day (Friday July 7th) the new car in my garage will be a 2000 Mercedes C230 Kompressor.
