Right, the biggest deal was announced by Brazilian aircraft maker Embraer
covering $810 million for up to 60 ERJ-135 regional jets from U.S.-based
Business Express. Note that LH announced LOI for 3 more MD11F during the show,
but not at the show.

Interesting that the A318 project was only revealed after the AA98, certainly
for not offending the Asian partners.
