787 Firing Order Updated

I've updated the spreadsheets to reflect the firing order up to LN 742.  Surprise, surprise, it looks like Biman Bangladesh will take the 4 787-8 they have on order.  Their first 787-8 is ZA954 (LN 726).  I estimate that this aircraft should be delivered in about 14 months from now.

Also it appears that United will receive the first GE GEnx-1B powered 787-10 next year.  This aircraft is ZC037 (LN 731).  Eva Airlines will take it's first 787 (a 787-9) on lease from Air Lease Corp.  This is ZB771 (LN 722).  China Southern Airlines' first leased 787-9 will come from AerCap, they have ZB934 (LN 737).

Uresh any idea if info on when airlines have to exercise options is public or available? I assume we are far enough into the backlog that some options need to be exercised at some point soon no?

That information is up to the airlines to release if they choose to. I don't know of any place to get that information though.

Uresh and Terek; Follow the link to Leeham news as they did a pretty good lob of recounting the option, LOI and MOU status, definition and its history on the subject.

Uresh said...
