10 Airplanes Worth About $2 Billion At List Prices
Boeing's order book continues to grow on the international
side of the ledger, with the announcement of an order for five
777-200ER (Extended Range) and five 767-300ER jetliners from All
Nippon Airways (ANA). The order is valued at approximately $2
billion at list prices.
"ANA is a great partner, flying all classes of Boeing airplanes
to meet its fleet needs, achieve financial objectives and provide
passengers superior comfort," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of
Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "With this order ANA has
reaffirmed its confidence in Boeing products."
The 777's operational efficiency, range and large payload
capability help airlines make the most of their airplane
investment, Boeing says. The Boeing 767 is valued by airlines for
its proven range, reliability and profitability. The 767-300ER
seats 218 passengers in a typical three-class configuration and has
a range of nearly 6,000 nautical miles.
