Boeing, Singapore Airlines Announce Massive Order For 39 Aircraft



MIAMI — Previously earmarked as an unidentified customer, Singapore Airlines has announced alongside aircraft manufacturing giant Boeing a deal for 20 Boeing 777-9Xs and 19 787-10 aircraft.

The announcement took place at a ceremony at the White House. This order is currently valued at around U.S. $13.8 billion and is said by Boeing that it will “sustain thousands of U.S. suppliers and more than 70,000 direct and indirect U.S. jobs during the delivery period of this contract”.

On top of this order for the 39 aircraft, Singapore has additional purchasing rights for 12 additional aircraft, with it being six of each type.

Goh Choon Phong, Singapore Airlines CEO said that “SIA has been a Boeing customer for many decades and we are pleased to have finalized this major order for widebody aircraft, which will enable us to continue operating a modern and fuel-efficient fleet.”

The airline’s executive, who was at the ceremony alongside President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, also said that “these new aircraft will also provide the SIA Group with new growth opportunities, allowing us to expand our network and offer even more travel options for our customers.”

Boeing’s CEO of Commercial Airplanes Kevin McAllister also commented that “Boeing and Singapore Airlines have been strong partners since the airline’s first operations 70 years ago and we are thrilled to finalize their purchase of 20 777Xs and 19 additional 787-10 Dreamliners. Singapore Airlines’ order is a testament to the market-leading capabilities of Boeing’s widebody airplanes, and we look forward to delivering the very first 787-10 to them next year,” he noted.

This is another significant commitment to the Boeing 777 family, especially from Singapore, who already have over 50 Boeing 777 aircraft.

With a prior order for 30 787-10 aircraft, they will now have 49 on order as well as being the launch customer for the aircraft type which is due to take place between Q118 and Q218.

Singapore’s subsidiaries SilkAir, Scoot, and SIA Cargo also operate the 737MAX8, 737-800, 787-8/9 and 747-400F aircraft as a whole collective, which highlights the significance of the relationship between the SIA Group and Boeing.

The 777-9X will be a great move for Singapore Airlines as they could start to implement more of a low-cost model as the aircraft can carry 400-425 passengers with a range of 7,600 nautical miles which means they could become more of an affordable long-haul carrier.

I've flown both a couple of times and I prefer QF's seat in terms of privacy (you're not forced to face towards the passenger next to you when the privacy divider is required to be lowered during takeoff and landing) however there really is not much difference between the two.

CX's seat has higher walls so it feels much more private. So you can't see your neighbour even though the inside 2 seats face each other.

Also, the way CX's seats are slanted means the horizontal distance between your head and your neighbour's head is longer than the QF 787 config.

Qantas almost certainly won't order all 45 Boeing 787s

Qantas is unlikely to pull the trigger on its full set of 45 orders and options for the Boeing 787, but the airline is open to adding the new Boeing 787-10 into the mix.
Qantas Group Alan Joyce has previously said he’d like to take all 45, enthusing "I'd like to order all of them if I can make a good return out of them, but now sees a different path ahead – one which means fewer Dreamliners in the fleet.
The size of the initial order, which stretches back to 2005, reflected Qantas’ intention to have the Boeing 787 replace the Airbus A330 on domestic routes.
But Joyce no longer plans to put the Boeing 787 onto domestic routes, he told Australian Business Traveller on the sidelines of the delivery of the first Qantas Dreamliner in Seattle last week.
"Our thinking has evolved... while the 787 as with the A330 are pretty powerful they are over-spec'd" for domestic flights, "so the economics do not work."
Instead, Qantas will revamp its domestic fleet from the mid-2020s with either the advanced Boeing 737 MAX or the Airbus A320neo and the yet-to-be-built mid-sized Boeing 797, which would also pick up some flights into south-east Asia.

So where does that leave Qantas' 45-strong order book for the Boeing 787?

“These are going to be great aircraft and we're going to want to take quite a lot of them over time (but) I don't think we're going to need (all 45),” says Qantas International CEO Gareth Evans, the former Qantas Group CFO who, after 2½ years heading the airline’s international arm, moves into the orange hot-seat at Jetstar next week.
“We’ve got eight for Qantas plus 11 already in Jetstar, plus another 45 which is more than enough,” Evans told Australian Business Traveller in Seattle. "I don't think we're going to need that many.”

Qantas will consider a second tranche of Boeing 787-9 deliveries from late 2019 or early 2020, with Paris and Germany already pencilled in as likely European destinations.
“Because of their size and flexibility there’s also great potential for Asia as well,” Evans said.

Evans said that Qantas could also sign up for the Boeing 787-10, which launches in early 2018 and can carry more passenger than the 787-9 over a slightly shorter range – although one that’s still sufficient for high-demand routes such as Sydney and Melbourne to Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

“We've got a very flexible order stream so we can decide what we take and when (with) the ability to flick between 787-8’s for Jetstar and -9s or even -10s for Qantas,” Evans allowed.
“It's obviously all got to be balanced and the business case has got to stack up, but with Boeing there's lots of flexibility to move those things around.”

Very interesting, not a single airframe for Qatar Airways until December 2018.
I thought Qatar was to start getting deliveries of -9s by the third quarter of 2018...

Boeing, CDB Aviation Finalize Order for 52 737 MAXs and Eight 787 Dreamliners
Quote:
$7.4 billion deal first announced at 2017 Paris Air Show

Puts 737 MAX program over 4,000 orders

SEATTLE, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE:BA] and CDB Aviation today finalized an order for 42 737 MAX 8s, 10 737 MAX 10s and eight 787-9 Dreamliners.

Boeing [NYSE:BA] and CDB Aviation today finalized an order for 42 737 MAX 8s, 10 737 MAX 10s and eight 787-9 Dreamliners. The order puts the 737 MAX program over 4,000 orders total.

The order, valued at $7.4 billion at current list prices, was announced as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the 2017 Paris Air Show. The order includes a conversion of six 737 MAX 8 orders, to the 737 MAX 10.

CDB Aviation, one of the largest and most influential Chinese-owned aviation leasing companies, is part of the launch customer group for the 737 MAX 10, the newest member of Boeing's 737 MAX family.

"The 737 MAX and the 787 Dreamliner are some of the most advanced, most fuel-efficient airplanes in the world today," said CDB Aviation President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Chang. "We're confident that the reliability, efficiency and superior economics of the MAX and Dreamliner families will be very appealing to our customers."

Last week Boeing also booked a new order for 5 787s by an unidentified customer.

Boeing, Emirates Announce Commitment for 40 787-10 Dreamliners

Quote:
One of the world's largest airlines picks the ultra-efficient 787 to optimize its future fleet Airplane deal to sustain tens of thousands U.S. jobs

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Emirates, one of the world's largest airlines, announced a commitment to purchase 40 787-10 Dreamliners at the 2017 Dubai Airshow. The deal, including airplanes and related equipment, is valued at $15.1 billion at current list prices.

Emirates is the world's largest Boeing 777 operator and will be the first to receive the new 777X in 2020. In selecting the 787-10, Emirates complements their 777 fleet with a medium twin-aisle airplane that offers 25 percent better fuel efficiency per seat and emissions than the airplanes it replaces.

"Emirates' orders today will be delivered from 2022, taking the airline well into the 2030s. Some of these will be replacements so that we maintain a young and efficient fleet, and others will power our future network growth. We see the 787 as a great complement to our 777 and A380 fleet, providing us with more flexibility to serve a range of destinations as we develop our global route network," said His Highness Sheik Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline and Group. "It has always been Emirates' strategy to invest in the most advanced and efficient aircraft, and today's orders reflect that. Today's announcement also speaks to our confidence in the future of aviation in the UAE and the region."

"We are excited that Emirates has selected the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner to power its fleet expansion and future growth. This is an airplane that will set a new benchmark for operating economics in the commercial aviation industry when it enters service next year," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Kevin McAllister. "Emirates' endorsement of the 787 Dreamliner extends our long-standing partnership and will sustain many jobs in the United States."

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce formula, a deal of this size would support more than 75,000 direct and indirect US jobs.

The 787-10 is the largest member of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family, which is the fastest-selling twin-aisle airplane in history. More than 65 customers have ordered more than 1,275 Dreamliners to date thanks to the family's ultra-fuel efficiency and passenger-preferred experience. Emirates' commitment pushes the total number of new 787 orders and commitments this year to more than 180; and more than 210 orders and commitments for the 787-10 overall.

Boeing has delivered more than 600 787s since deliveries began in 2011. The 787 fleet has flown more than 200 million passengers while saving over 19 billion pounds of fuel, enabling airlines to open more than 170 new nonstop routes around the world.

The 787-10 Dreamliner is 5.5 meters (18 ft) longer than the 787-9 yet shares more than 95% commonality with its smaller sibling. With its unprecedented low fuel use and operating costs, the 787-10 is the most efficient replacement for older twin-aisle jets such as the A330-300.
Boeing press release:
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/2017-11-...10-Dreamliners


Emirates says firm order:

"Our firm order for 40 @Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners takes our total wide-body orders with Boeing to 204 aircraft. #DAS17"

5 more 787-8s for Azerbaijan Airlines


Boeing, Azerbaijan Airlines Announce Deal for 787 Dreamliners, Freighters, 787 Landing Gear Exchange Program

Quote:
Azerbaijan Airlines grows its 787 Dreamliner fleet from two to seven

The airline will be the launch customer for the 787 landing gear exchange program

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE:BA] and Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) announced an order for five more 787-8 Dreamliners and a commitment to purchase two large freighters. The agreement, announced at the 2017 Dubai Air Show, is valued at about $1.9 billion at current list prices.

The freighter commitment will be finalized at a later time.

Azerbaijan Airlines also announced it will be the launch customer for the 787 Landing Gear Exchange Program whereby Boeing Global Services will provide the carrier with a lower-cost solution for overhauled and certified landing gears for its Dreamliner fleet, which now grows to seven airplanes.

"Ordering additional 787 Dreamliner airplanes will greatly expand our airline's capabilities, allowing us to serve new destinations and carry more passengers," said AZAL President Jahangir Askerov. "We are delighted to expand our partnership with The Boeing Company, which has been a reliable partner in supplying modern airplanes, and helping us operate and maintain the jets."

"We appreciate Azerbaijan Airlines' growing confidence in the Boeing 787 and the airplane's market-leading fuel efficiency and passenger-pleasing features," said Kevin McAllister, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 787 Dreamliner will play a key role in Azerbaijan's fleet modernization plan, help them open new routes, and contribute to their long-term success."

"Boeing is excited to launch the 787 landing gear exchange program with Azerbaijan Airlines," said Stan Deal, President and CEO of Boeing Global Services. "This program will keep the airline's 787s flying while providing a cost-effective and reliable alternative to buying new landing gear and performing equipment overhaul."

The 787-10's for Emirates will be for one purpose: regional routes out of DXB, possibly as far as India.

Yup, 40 787-10s ordered today by Emirates, with options for 787-9s should they need it. Finally some great news, I'm honestly tired of flying on EK's 777s. I guess they'll mostly be used in regional routes as well as Asian and European routes.
