Updated: QR Finalizing Order for Five 777F

Tue Jul 09, 2019 4:29 pm

The President of the United States, Mr. Trump, along with the Emir of Qatar are signing an agreement today 'for a large number of Boeing planes'.

Don't get political. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Does anyone know exactly what the order will be? The breakdown?

Thanks

Probably a rehash of existing orders.

The signing of these supposedly big orders is becoming more and more like China - done at a state level.

I guess all of us here at airliners.net agree that QR have over ordered from both Airbus and Boeing.

Probably this - QR firming some previously announced MOU/LOI - most likely the 5 77F's from Paris and maybe some additional.

Without getting in to the usual "Trump's usual full of hot air" remarks, could this just be the Firming of the 5 x 777F announced at Paris and not yet added to last months tally?

This is political, but not directly "Trump good/Trump bad", rather : isn't the US supporting a Saudi/UAE embargo on Qatar ?

I can't see how this is happening at the same time, I must be missing some info.

Not at all.
U.S quite opposes the situation and has called on it to end. Qatar quite important ally especially with it being the host nation of US military Central Command.

They won't take all the ones they already have on order.. Some more 787s and maybe a Max order? AAB has voiced displeasure with the engine situation with the NEO.. Boeing will be offering Max's at Rock bottom prices, seems like a match..

But they're stealing American jobs! The unfair subsidies!

In all seriousness, can someone actually explain to me what the order actually is because I'm kinda confused as to what ''rehash'' means

Rehash:

verb (used with object)
1. to work up (old material) in a new form.

Ref: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/rehash

So (if the posts above are true) it's not a new order, it's just working up the old orders in a new form.
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

If past experience is anything to go by, the quality of the carpets may be an item which risks a breakdown in the order...

They have enough on order already. New stuff would be suspect as vapor.

Heck, the biggest headline might be the 777X order is still intact.
Read a few threads on A.net saying that order was in jeopardy in the recent past

You're likely thinking of Etihad Airlines of the UAE, who have cancelled a significant number of Airbus orders and are widely rumored to eventually do the same with a significant portion of their currently outstanding Boeing orders.

It means even less than that. The order is only safe as long as the cameras are running. As soon as the lights are off and the attention is elsewhere, anything still goes.

Well, no: Trump doesn't negotiate nor accept orders on behalf of Boeing. Nor do U.S. carriers need permission from a state agency before executing purchase transactions. This can be nothing more than ANNOUNCING an order (perhaps in no way new) to flatter Trump.

At least the 787-9s are indeed on the way, I feel like we have been waiting quite a long time for those.

Is it possible for hot air to exist in higher concentration than in a room with both U-Turn-Al and DJT in it? :scratchchin:

This happened many times earlier, and the future presidents will continue this tradition. The signature of the President is of course just for show, he can't sign deals for any private company right now.

Yes, CENTCOM is headquardered at MacDill, but CENTCOM Forward headquarters is based in Qatar, as are substantial warfighting forces.
