    It looks like Boeing will be a bit busier over the next five years or so.

    China Eastern Airlines To Buy 20 777-300's:

    China Eastern Airlines Co. is buying 20 Boeing 777 jets worth nearly $6 billion while also selling five Airbus A340s to the U.S. plane maker because they're costlier to run, the Shanghai-based airline said Monday.

    The airline said it's selling the Airbus A340-600 airplanes worth $708 million to Boeing because they have high operating costs and "relatively weak route competitiveness." The Airbus jets are about 8.3 years old, on average, and fly long-haul routes to New York and Los Angeles.

    Philippine Airlines To Order 100 Planes:

    Philippine Airlines Inc. plans to order at least 100 new planes, resume flights to Europe and bolster U.S. services after selling a stake to San Miguel Corp. (SMC)
    The carrier’s two main owners will provide $1 billion to help fund the fleet plan, Ramon Ang, president of the airline and of San Miguel, said in an interview in Manila yesterday. San Miguel will inject $750 million in PAL and affiliate Air Philippines Corp., including a $500 million stake purchase, while billionaire Lucio Tan will deliver the rest, he said.

    ...

    The group will do more business with Boeing Co. (BA) than previously, he said, without elaboration.

    I have an ex-roommate that works for Boeing building engines.
