You probably mean "retail price". And where does one buy an airliner, "retail", anyway? Someone like ILFC? So Boeing has never discounted an airliner to make a sale? The issue is simply this: if the normal "deal" on a 120 unit order involves pricing at X% off "list price", how does the approx. 45% in this order compare with that X%? Care to comment on pricing for some of Boeings "launch" orders? Malc.
