I read in the WSJ this morning that Continental Airlines has tentatively agreed to purchase 40 Boeing aircraft, including 10 777s and 30 767-400ERs. I don't know the model of 777 that they have agreed upon. I want to give a hand to H. Andrew Chuang, who I believe pointed out that the deal was not yet in Airbus' hands. I was sure, after reading Continental's statements about the A330-200, that they would choose the European consortium to replace the DC-10s. The WSJ also mentioned that the board of Continental would be presented with two different agreements to vote on: one containing firm orders for 40 aircraft, and one containing firm orders for 40 aircraft, plus an exclusive- supplier agreement. Any comments? Think Van Miert will blow a gasket?
