Boeing and Air Lease Corporation announce commitment for 30 787-10Xs and three 787-9s

Boeing and Air Lease Corporation (ALC) signed (18-Jun-2013) a MoU covering the purchase of 33 aircraft, covering three 787-9 and 30 787-10X aircraft. Boeing stated it looks forward to working with ALC to finalise the details of the agreement, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order. ALC expects to begin taking 787-10X deliveries in 2019. ALC chairman and CEO Steven F Udvar-Hazy said he believes the performance characteristics of the 787-10X "will build on the 787 family’s success in the marketplace.” Once the order is finalised, these 787-10Xs and 787-9s will add to the more than 180 aircraft that ALC already has on order. It also will mark more than 1000 Boeing airplanes that Mr Udvar-Hazy and his management team have ordered over the past 35 years. [more - original PR]
