No News From Boeing Still! Does Anyone Know Why?

Tue Apr 24, 2001 8:12 pm

Boeing supposed to have announced the name of the customer who ordered the unidentified B 747-400s. However, we haven't heard anything from Boeing yet up to now. Does anyone know why?

Does anyone have any idea WHEN they are going to announce it?

My sources at Boeing say that the customer wants to keep the order under wraps for a while until they get the financing sorted out. Looking at the customer's record, I can see why.

Patience, young man, patience.

Do you think it is going to be an American or Canadian Firm like Air Canada, UAL or American?

Financing problems? Then it might be Thai or Korean Air. The Thai government agreed on ordering some new 744s recently so the order is due soon.
