There is some conflicting info about L/N 1437, but all indicated delivery dates are in November.


Contract delivery date is November 30th, with paint completion at October 27th.

AZAL Azerbaijan orders five more B787s; eyes freighters

In tandem to the B787 order, the Azeri national carrier has also committed to "two large freighters" said to be either B747-8(F)s or B777-Fs. Their purchase will be finalized "at a later time", Boeing said.
