Boeing and Air France Announce 747-400 Special Freighter Order :

Boeing and Air France have penned an agreement to convert three Boeing 747-400 airplanes into freighters as part of the Boeing 747-400 Special Freighter program. Boeing originally delivered the three airplanes as Combi models. The airline later converted the airplanes to full passenger configuration.

This illustration depicts the converted airplane in Air France livery.

Seven customers have announced 33 firm orders and 29 options.

SEATTLE, May 24, 2005

Boeing [NYSE:BA] today officially launched the Boeing 777 Freighter, the world's largest and most capable twin-engine freighter, following the completion of a launch order from Air France.

Air France ordered five 777 Freighters, with options for three additional airplanes, to replace its 747-200F fleet. The first 777 Freighter is scheduled for delivery to Air France in the fourth quarter of 2008.

"The acquisition of the Boeing 777F will enable us to take advantage of the 'family effects' and technical uniformity found in the 777-200ER and the -300ER fleet which has already proved its capacity for on-time performance and fuel-saving," said Jean-Cyril Spinetta, chairman and chief executive officer of Air France. "This aircraft will considerably increase flown tonne revenues and will therefore heighten the profitability of our cargo division."

Air Canada also announced in April the inclusion of the 777 Freighter as part of its selection of 777s and 787s to renew its long-haul fleet. Upon completion of that agreement, Air Canada will join the 777 Freighter launch team.

"The world wants the 777 Freighter and we're going to build it," said Alan Mulally, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Air cargo is the fastest-growing segment of commercial aviation and a critical enabler in our global economy. The 777 Freighter will deliver tremendous value to owners and operators, and we are delighted to have Air France and Air Canada leading our launch team."

Launch of the new freighter brings Boeing's 777 family to six models. Working with cargo operators worldwide, Boeing selected the 777-200LR Worldliner as the platform for the 777 Freighter because it offers the range and payload capability operators want. The first 777-200LR Worldliner will enter passenger service in January 2006.

The 777 Freighter will be capable of flying 4,965 nautical miles (9,195 kilometers) with a full payload and market-preferred cargo load density, making it the world's longest-range freighter. With the lowest trip cost of any large freighter and excellent ton-mile economics, the 777 Freighter will build on the 777 family's demonstrated success in delivering lower fuel consumption, maintenance costs, and operating costs than other airplanes in its class.

The new airplane will feature capacity never seen before on a twin-engine freighter. With a maximum takeoff weight of 766,000 pounds (347,450 kilograms), the 777 Freighter will have a revenue payload capability of 229,000 pounds (103 metric tons).

The 777 Freighter will be powered exclusively by the world's most powerful commercial jet engine, General Electric's GE90-110B1L. The 777 Freighter will meet QC2 noise standards for maximum accessibility to noise-sensitive airports.

The 777 Freighter complements the Boeing 747-400 Freighter family, which is the air-cargo industry's standard. Both the 777 and 747 Freighters accommodate 10-foot-high (3.1 meter) pallets, providing operators with maximum flexibility.

The Boeing 747 Freighter family currently constitutes more than half of the world's total freighter capacity. Boeing freighters of all models comprise more than 90 percent of the total worldwide freighter lift. Boeing forecasts that large widebody freighters (65 metric tons and above in capacity) will comprise 31 percent of the market by 2023.

A NEW FREIGHTER!!!!

Boeing gets Singapore leasing firm order worth up to US$1.1 billion

CHICAGO : US aerospace maker Boeing said it signed deal to sell 20 of its "next-generation" 737 planes to Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise (SALE).

The agreement also calls for options for 20 additional airplanes and could be worth up to 1.1 billion dollars at list prices.

It is the first direct order of 737s from Boeing from the Singapore group. Deliveries are to begin in late 2006 and extend through late 2009.

It also is the largest jetliner purchase announced by a leasing company since the September 11, 2001, attacks, according to Boeing.

"This is clearly a milestone in our relationship with Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise, a world-class lessor," said Mike Cave, vice president and general manager of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"The 737 is a favourite among both full-service and low-cost carriers -- an important attribute in the leasing business."

The 737 has long been Boeing's best selling airliner and is the smallest of its commercial jets following the end of production of the 717.- AFP /ct

Lion Air to Buy Jets, Make Regional Push
Deal for 60 Boeing Planes By Budget Carrier Signals Turning Point in Indonesia
By Timothy Mapes
26 May 2005
The Asian Wall Street Journal

JAKARTA -- Indonesian low-cost carrier Lion Mentari Airlines intends to spend $3.9 billion to buy 60 new Boeing Co. 737 aircraft as part of an ambitious plan to transform itself into a major player in Southeast Asia's increasingly crowded market for regional budget air travel, a spokesman for the Indonesian airline said.

The deal -- expected to be signed in Washington today during a state visit by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono -- marks an important turning point for Indonesia's airline industry, which is finally starting to rebound after years of financial problems caused by currency volatility and declining tourist arrivals.

The deal is the first large order for new jets from an Indonesian airline since the country's 1997-98 financial crisis, industry executives say. Lion spokesman Hasyim Arsal Alhabsi said the order is for firm deliveries beginning early next year and extending through 2007.

Closely held Lion Air has grown rapidly since it began operations in 2000 amid a broad deregulation of Indonesia's airline industry. Lion is now the country's second-largest airline in terms of passengers carried, after the debt-strapped state-run flag carrier, Garuda Indonesia. Neither airline releases financial data, however, making it difficult for analysts to directly compare their business operations.

Lion operates a fleet of 34 planes, made up mostly of older McDonnell Douglas jets. The airline serves 17 destinations around the Indonesian archipelago, and offers flights to Singapore and the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Last November, 26 people were killed when one of Lion's MD-82 jets skidded off a runway in Solo, central Java province.

Mr. Alhabsi said Lion would use the new planes -- 30 737-800s and 30 737-900s -- to replace some of its existing aircraft, which may be transferred to Lion's aircraft-leasing operation based in Singapore. The 737-900 model was designed specifically for low-cost carriers, the Lion spokesman said, and offers greater fuel efficiency, lower running costs and greater ease in reconfiguring passenger seating.

The fleet expansion also will allow Lion to begin flights to several new destinations around the Asian-Pacific region, such as India, Australia and China including Hong Kong. That will bring Lion into direct competition with AirAsia, a successful three-year-old Malaysian airline, and several other airlines that have sprouted around the region in recent months.

Although new planes are expensive, industry experts say they can be much cheaper to operate for a low-cost carrier like Lion, which needs to operate its planes at maximum efficiency in order to make a profit. By contrast, older planes are often cheaper to lease or buy, but are less fuel-efficient, need more frequent repairs, and can spend less time in the air each day.

Mr. Alhabsi said Lion would be receiving substantial amounts of foreign financing for the deal, but declined to spell out specific plans.

The deal's value of $3.9 billion breaks down to about $65 million per plane, or right in the middle of Boeing's list prices for its 737 models. Mr. Alhabsi said Lion officials also reviewed a competing offer from Airbus -- owned by European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co. and BAE Systems PLC -- but decided to go with Boeing because Lion already flies several Boeing models, and a unified fleet makes sense for maintenance and other purposes.

A Boeing spokesman confirmed that the company has been in discussions with Lion, but he declined to comment further until after the deal has been officially announced.

Egyptair says to buy 12 Boeing 737/800s

CAIRO, May 27 (Reuters) - Egyptian national carrier EgyptAir will buy 12 new Boeing 737/800 planes for $850 million, EgyptAir chief executive Sherif Galal said on Friday.

Galal told reporters that a contract for the planes will be signed next week. "The Boeing offer has been chosen because EgyptAir was given numerous advantages," he added.

"They will start to join the fleet in the middle of 2006 and until the end of 2007," he added.

The new planes have capacity for 159 passengers each and EgyptAir will use them on its routes to European cities and the Middle East, Galal said.

EgyptAir, which is wholly state owned, will also buy a flight simulator for $12 million to train pilots on the new planes, he said.

U.S. Reopens WTO Case Against EU Support For Airbus

Monday May 30, 2005 06:09 PM EST
By John Chalmers


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The United States reactivated its World Trade Organisation (WTO) case against European subsidies for aircraft maker Airbus on Monday after fresh efforts to reach a negotiated settlement with Brussels failed.

The legal action at the Geneva-based trade body over billions of dollars in aid is likely to be the largest commercial dispute in history and will put a severe strain on transatlantic business relations.

The two sides said in a joint statement they would not let their aviation spat spill into other trade areas, including negotiations with developing nations for a global free trade blueprint that are due to reach a climax in December.

The breakdown in talks came after the European Union announced that, in a bid to avert a WTO showdown, it had offered to cut "launch investment" loans for Airbus's planned A350 airliner by around 30 percent.

That was not enough for Washington, which -- worried that soft loans from EU states for the A350 could challenge Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner -- wants such aid to stop altogether.

"We would rather not have to go back to the WTO. But the EU's insistence on moving forward with new launch aid is forcing our hand," U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman said.

"Unfortunately, at this point, the EU is no longer willing to hold off on launch aid, and has only proposed to reduce subsidies, not end them," he said in a statement.

The EU lodged a case of its own with the WTO last year, arguing that Boeing is effectively subsidised by tax breaks in Washington State, federal contracts for military and space research and support from Tokyo for building wings in Japan.

It expressed disappointment at the turn of events on Monday but stopped short of announcing that it would reactivate its own case, saying it would make public its next steps on Tuesday.

"SPINNING TO THE PRESS"

The two sides had agreed in January to put their cases on ice and hammer out an agreement that would eliminate subsidies.

But negotiations broke down two months later because the EU refused to contemplate a cut in "launch aid" for Airbus without a balanced reduction in benefits for its rival.

Washington says that Airbus, owned by Franco-German-Spanish aerospace firm EADS and Britain's BAE Systems, no longer needs government support since snatching the crown as the world's largest commercial aircraft maker from Boeing in 2003.

Airbus has estimated it will cost 3 billion euros ($3.76 billion) to develop the mid-size A350. Chief Executive Noel Forgeard has said Airbus is likely to ask for up to 1 billion euros in repayable state loans from European governments.

EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson offered during a telephone call to Portman last Friday to reduce that aid by 30 percent providing this is balanced by cuts in support to Boeing.

"What we are suggesting is a balanced solution ... whereby a cut on one side would be matched by a commensurate cut on the other side," said Mandelson's spokeswoman, Claude Veron-Reville. "There is no question of Airbus disarming on its own."

But news of the EU proposal only served to stoke tensions.

"We're extremely disappointed that they've begun spinning to the press -- this does not help our relations or the management of the U.S.-EU relationship," U.S. Trade Representative spokesman Richard Mills said in a statement earlier.

His comment was a barely disguised personal snub to Mandelson, whose former political career in Britain was marked by charges of media manipulation.

Airbus and its shareholders said Washington's response cast serious doubt on its commitment to a negotiated outcome.

"Such a negotiation should also address the short-term issue of the two competing new aircraft, the Airbus A350 and the Boeing 787," they said in a statement. "This latter has become the world's most subsidised airliner ever."

Pakistan would start manufacturing parts of Boeing aircraft from June this year, thus, formally joining the club of aviation parts manufacturers. During a visit of media persons to Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC), Kamra, on Monday, it was stated by PAC chief Air Marshal Aurangzeb that Boeing aircraft Co, have set up parts manufacturing unit at the PAC. "At this factory through Boeing offset programme, we shall be manufacturing aviation parts for Boeing 747, 767 and 777 aircraft," Air Marshal Aurangzeb said. He said know-how thus gained through this venture will certainly help in establishing JF-17 (Thunder) aircraft production line.

He said parts of Boeing would be manufactured here and sent to the company for their onward sale and supply.

Technicians of Boeing are working on the installation of the plant which would be completed by the end of this month and would start production from next month, he added.

MUSHAK DELIVERY: Air Marshal Aurengzeb said the delivery of 20 Super Mushak trainer aircraft to Saudi Arabia would successfully complete by September this year.

"We have already handed over a lot of seven aircraft to Saudi Arabia while a batch of another eight aircraft would be handed then over by end of this month," he told a questioner.

The rest five aircraft, making the total to 20, would be handed them over during September, he added.

This supply of the aircraft has not only earned the country a sizeable amount in foreign exchange but also would help build the image of PAC for production of quality and reliable lot.

JF-17 PRODUCTION: Chief Project Director at JF-17 Project, Air Vice Marshal Shahid Lateef said the series production of JF-17 (Thunder) aircraft being manufactured by Pakistan and China would start from March 2007.

He said the annual production of the aircraft would be adjusted to clear for timely replacement of old aircraft retiring from the Pakistan Air Force inventory.

Answering a question, he said Pakistan needs to have around 150 aircraft while the co-partner in the project China would require around 250 fighter aircraft.

He said the Prototype 4 is being manufactured and is likely to be completed by the end of the year. This aircraft is designed to house the complete avionics package.

The fifth Prototype would again be a ground testing model used for fatigue testing to determine the operational life of the aircraft, he said adding, this prototype would be manufactured after qualification of fourth one.

In reply to a question, he rejected all the rumours about the non-availability of the engine of the aircraft by Russia saying there was no substance in the news, which was merely based on the press statement of Russian Defence Minister prior to his departure for India.

He said the engine supply contract of Russia with China is well intact and there is no ambiguity in it. The Air Vice Marshal said this aircraft would be capable of carrying short range, beyond visual rake (BVR), anti ship as well as anti radiation missiles.

Additionally, the carriage of high and low drag bombs, laser guided, runway penetration, and cluster bombs has been catered for.

PAC chief Air Marshal Aurangzeb gave detailed briefing about the different projects being undertaken at the complex like manufacturing of Mashaak, Super Mashaak, and K8 aircraft.

He also briefed about the overhauling projects of F-16, F-7, F-7 PG, Mirage, C-130 and other aircraft in PAF inventory.

He said in the case of JF-17 aircraft Pakistan would be having manufacturing share of around 50 percent of the airframe and at later stage this would be enhanced to 100 percent.

Later, the media persons were taken to various installations of the PAC.
OMG, scary. I will never use boeing again........ever....

Boeing to Highlight 787 Dreamliner, 777-200LR Worldliner and KC-767A Tanker Transport Aircraft at Paris Air Show 2005

CHICAGO, June 3, 2005 – The world’s longest-range passenger jet, the most advanced and capable tanker aircraft, and the aviation industry’s best-selling new airplane will be among the products featured by The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] at this year’s Paris Air Show, beginning June 13 at Le Bourget airfield outside Paris.

“Boeing is entering the air show with tremendous momentum,” said Tod Hullin, Boeing senior vice president, Communications. “This is a company that’s on the move. Our financial performance has been strong, and the operating engine of the company is running on all cylinders,” he said. “The market recovery in the commercial airplane business is taking hold, and orders for Boeing airplanes are up significantly. At the same time, program performance across our defense and space businesses has been excellent as we add to our industry-leading backlog.”

Hullin issued a reminder that Boeing does not artificially store up commercial orders to be announced at air shows. “Our customers determine the time and place for order announcements, and we support their decisions,” he said.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be showcased in a dedicated exhibit space adjacent to the static aircraft displays, which feature the Boeing 777-200LR (long range), 747-400 Freighter and the new KC-767A tanker aircraft. The 777-200LR, which will be capable of providing direct, non-stop service between cities as far as 17,446 km apart when it enters service in 2006, is currently scheduled to arrive at Le Bourget on Friday, June 10 at about 0830. The KC-767A for the Italian Air Force will arrive later in the day at around 1700. Accredited media are invited to coordinate with the show staff regarding photographing the aircrafts’ arrivals.

Boeing’s schedule begins on Monday, June 13, with briefings by the President and CEO of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems Jim Albaugh at 1300, followed by 787 Dreamliner Vice President and General Manager Mike Bair at 1330. Alan Mulally, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will conduct a briefing on Tuesday, June 14, at 1300. These executive briefings will take place in the Salon Press Centre. Connexion by Boeing President Laurette Koellner also will attend to discuss the first year of in-flight connectivity service for commercial airlines and their passengers.

In addition to the 777-200LR Worldliner, 747-400 Freighter and the Italian KC-767A Tanker, several Boeing-built military products are scheduled to be on display, including the C-17 Globemaster III, F-15E Strike Eagle, AH-64D Apache Longbow, and the SLAM-ER and Harpoon missiles. The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, flown by Boeing F/A-18 Chief Test Pilot Ricardo Traven, will take part in the daily flying display.

Accredited journalists are invited to the Boeing Press Chalet (A406-7), directly opposite the main Boeing chalet, throughout the week. Boeing will hold a series of briefings on key programs and issues. Each day, media should check the briefing schedule at the Boeing Press Chalet, Boeing Exhibit and the Salon Press Centre for updates.

Boeing hopes for 700 new orders for 787

NAGOYA, Japan -- The Boeing Co. has proposals outstanding to airlines and leasing companies for 700 or more additional 787s, the company's jetliner sales chief disclosed.

That's considerably more potential sales than Boeing has previously stated were in the works.

In April, Mike Bair, vice president and general manager of the 787 program, said Boeing was in serious discussion with another 26 airlines for 429 more 787s. Most had placed refundable deposits to save a place in a very full production line, Bair said.

This week, in an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in Japan, Boeing sales chief Scott Carson described the Bair figure as a "subset" of the 700-plus proposal number.

The bigger figure includes airlines that have not made deposits, Carson said, and he acknowledged that he does not expect all to became firm orders or even commitments.

"Not every one of those will be picked up," he said of the outstanding proposals representing more than 700 planes.

At least one announced 787 customer could soon order more planes, even though the first 787s will not be delivered until 2008.

"We are looking to convert some of our options into firm orders for the 787," Ralph Norris, chief executive of Air New Zealand, said in an interview.

Air New Zealand was one of the early launch customers for the 787, but ordered only two planes as part of a bigger 777 order. Norris said the airline has options to take 18 more 787s. They would be the bigger 787-9, he said.



Air New Zealand is a member of the Star Alliance, and Norris and the chief executives of the other 15 airlines that make up the alliance formed in 1997 met yesterday at the newly opened Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya.

The chief executives voted in a new member, Swiss International Air Lines.

In addition to Air New Zealand, two other Star members, All Nippon and Air Canada, have placed 787 orders.

Kanok Abhiradee, president of Star member Thai airlines, said in an interview that he is interested in the 787 and he noted that it could become the plane of choice for many Star members.

The alliance already is working to develop common specifications for the 787, much as it did a few years ago when considering a group purchase of regional jets.

Singapore Airlines, a Star Alliance member, is expected eventually to order the 787. And Star member Lufthansa is considering the Boeing plane as well as the Airbus A350.

The only Star airline that has so far said it plans to order the competing A350 is US Airways.
