Boeing selling spree continues, Hainan orders 38 jets including 32 787s

Boeing won an order for 30 787-9, 2 787-8 BBJ and 6 777F in an order announcement that came at the Asian Aerospace 2011 show. These aircraft were ordered by Hong Kong Airlines and are an MoU (subject to being finalized. Hainan Airlines Co. Ltd. ownes Hong Kong Airlines. This is a big day for Boeing widebody offferings as earlier they had announced another MoU with Air China for 5 747-8I.

This is the first significant order for the 787 since United Airlines placed an order for 25 787s in 2010. A delivery date has not been announced but I suspect it will be in 2015 or so.

Good to hear! Any idea why ZA002 has not flown for such a long time? (102 as well, but that's a production plane)

larmeyers,
Looks like ZA002 is back in the air. Made a short flight yesterday, and shows another planned for today.

john777, Where can we get a look at that flight schedule?

dannyboy: just go to flightaware.com. Find the Flight tracker in the left side, enter BOE in the airline field, and 1 , 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 in the flight number field.
