SEATTLE, May 29, 2007 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Russia's S7 Group today announced an order for 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and purchase rights for 10 additional 787s. S7 Group subsidiary S7 Airlines will operate the advanced-technology Dreamliners. The 787s will replace S7's fleet of aging twin-aisle airplanes and provide capacity for growth. The order is valued at $2.4 billion at catalog prices.
Rollout and first flight of the 787 are scheduled for later this year, followed by entry into service in May 2008. Forty-five customers worldwide have placed 584 orders for the 787 since its launch in April 2004, making the Dreamliner the world's fastest-selling commercial airplane in history.
