The Boeing Company announced at the Dubai Air Show an order for six 787-8 Dreamliners, Boeing’s all-new advanced-technology airplane.
The order was placed last May, thereby making LCAL the first leasing company to commit to the 787. LCAL was not identified as the customer for that order until today.
The order is valued at approximately $780 million at list prices. Deliveries are to begin in September 2009.
LCAL, registered last year as a corporation, will base its leasing business entirely around the 787.
