I got a few more details about EVA's upcoming aircraft order.  It will
be for around 20 medium- to long-range planes worth at least US$1b.
No Airbus aircraft will be involved.

Also, EVA will convert its three all-passenger MD-11s to freighters.
(FedEx is converting AA's, Korean Air is also converting theirs,
now EVA ...)
