Seems weird for Boeing to wait for 6 weeks to make announcement publicly

Quoting DfwRevolution (Reply 9):
Can they break 500 before first flight?
|Quoting AA1818 (Reply 12):|
Congrats to Boeing and ANZ- I was wondering when this intention was going to be made firm!!!! Hopefully with that out of the way we can await the 773ER order with bated breath.
|Quoting XT6Wagon (Reply 29):|
Its very possible that the slots for these 4 planes came up as "next" and so they firmed the options instead of losing the slots to a firm order.
|Quoting Cchan (Reply 22):|
Will NZ least some 777-200ER to replace the 767s in the meantime?
|Quoting ZKSUJ (Reply 31):|
Norris also said the NZ were interested in the 748. It's Fyfe to my knowlege that will bring in the 77W in place of the 744s
|Quoting SunriseValley (Reply 32):|
I subscribe to the view that they might take on some 787-8's . Fyfe indicated this about a year ago.
|Quoting Kiwiandrew (Reply 21):|
also , our revered fount of knowledge , NZ1 , mentioned on another thread a couple of days ago that the 767s should all be gone within the next 3 years , as this is before EIS for the 787-9s maybe there is a leasing deal to be announced for some 787-8s to cover the withdrawal of the 767s ???
|Quoting Cchan (Reply 33):|
I gotta agree with Fyfe or whoever decided on 77W over 748s. I doesn't make sense to buy 748s for NZ when it comes to the time they need to get rid of them...
