This from the posted press release:

"Boeing and Aviation Capital Services will work to finalize the details of the order, valued at more than $3.5 billion at current list prices. When complete, the order will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as firm."

Not quite an order or sale, but still good news.
Thanks,  
Cary

maybe boeing will pay for the titanium with aircraft instead of cash. Everybody wins.
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Quoting Caryjack (Reply 1):

It's a commitment, so it'll fall in the same spot as the AA 737MAX order.

They also pay for the titanium by keeping an engineering office open in Moscow.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
