On the day that it celebrated the anniversary of the launch of the 787, Boeing wrapped up one of the longest sales campaigns in history as it won the widebody mandate from Air-India to supply up to 50 jets worth $6.8 billion.
Yesterday's deal includes firm orders for five GE90-110B-powered 777-200LRs, 10 GE90-115B-powered 777-300ERs and 20 787-8s, with options on three 777-200LRs, five 777-300ERs and seven 787-8s. Engine selection on the 787s was not announced, but GE valued the 777 firm engine orders at more than $700 million.
