Is this a new order or finalization of an earlier announcement?
Fair Use Excerpt: Boeing Co (BA) said it received an order from China Southern Airlines 1055.HK 600029.SS, China's largest carrier by fleet size, for 55 additional next-generation 737-700s and 737-800s.
The order is worth $3.8 billion at catalogue prices, Boeing said in a statement.
The 55 airplanes will add to the 129 737s already in China Southern's fleet and the 14 more 737s yet to be delivered from previous orders, Boeing said.
