GECAS and Boeing announce commitment for 10 787-10X aircraft

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) and Boeing announced (17-Jun-2013) a commitment to order 10 787-10Xs. The aircraft will be equipped with GEnx-1B engines. GECAS president and CEO Norman CT Liu said the company has studied the capabilities Boeing is developing for the 787-10X and anticipate strong demand from customers for the aircraft. The 787-10X under consideration would add approximately 15% passenger capacity over the 787-9 with superior fuel efficiency to serve medium and long-haul markets. Once finalised, these 787s will bring the total number of aircraft GECAS has ordered from Boeing to 598 since 1995. To date, GECAS has taken delivery of 444 of the aircraft.
