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?
