Travel News Asia Tuesday, 20 February 2007

LOT Polish Airlines has increased its Boeing 787 Dreamliner order by one additional aircraft, bringing its total 787 order to eight airplanes. In 2005, LOT placed an order for seven 787s, with delivery positions beginning in 2008.

This new order, valued at $153 million at list prices, was booked previously on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website, attributed to an unidentified customer.

"We are delighted with the steady progress we're witnessing on the 787 Program and are eager to see the first 787 this year," said Marek Mazur, chief executive officer of LOT Polish Airlines. "Furthermore, we are making excellent progress in preparing for the arrival of the first 787 in our fleet in 2008."

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with first delivery scheduled for 2008, aims to provide passengers with a better flying experience and operators with a more efficient commercial jetliner. Including this order by LOT, 37 customers have logged 468 orders and commitments worth more than $73 billion at current list prices since the 787 launch in April 2004.
