Spotted on a Boeing Electronic Bulletin Board: 12/2/92 3. AVIATION DAILY - International Lease Finance Corp. President Steven Udvar-Hazy yesterday confirmed the company will place, probably by mid-December, orders and options for at least 80 aircraft and possibly as many as 100. He said he hoped the orders, which will involve most big engine manufacturers, "will be a spark plug to give confidence back to the airline industry." The orders also should provide a big boost to Boeing and Airbus, but not Douglas. Udvar-Hazy said Douglas "made vanilla-type proposals, whereas Boeing and Airbus have been more appreciative of ILFC steadiness in keeping their production lines going." -- Stephen L Nicoud <stephen@Boeing.Com> bcstec!bcsaic!stephen Boeing Computer Services Research and Technology Bellevue, Washington USA "I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks."
