Hot off the press!!!
SIA has awarded the US$12.7 billion order to Boeing for 77 Boeing 777s.
34 are are firm orders while the rest remain options. Of this order, 6
firm orders and 10 options are for Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise
(Alitalia 767-300 leases?). The most amazing part of thr order is that
this predominantly Pratt and Whitney operator has finally opted for Rolls
Royce engines. The report has also stated that SIA is keen on the Boeing
777-100s for non-stop services to Los Angeles.It was not stated as to when
deliveries were to begin. I cannot wait to travel on one of these
aircraft!
