What now remains to be seen is the confirmation of the two(?) leased frames from GECAS, if those are to follow in 2010 - a year after the direct orders.

What a GIANT coup for Boeing!!! A good friend who was once on the Board of PAL said that the airline was headed to an all Airbus fleet only 2-4 years ago. I guess things have really changed.
