Boeing selling 767's to UPS, good for them. Strange thing about it is that delivery of some of those airplanes is clear out in 2012. Now the 767 line short of tanker sales is dead meat and about to be shut down. So how are planes being put in the firing order clear out in 2012 with out Boeing already getting the wink and the nod. Who says crime doesn't pay?
Jumbo does not know what he is supposed to see .
I have looked again; your post is 'hooked' to
barbara_anne_hollinsworths post, just above mine .
Note, this is different from barbara_anne_hollinGsworth
by one letter . A typical ID fag ploy .
1. Just don't get it, do you ?
Go back and read through the thread again,
your question has already been answered .
2. Arab Annie is an imposter of Barb Hollingsworth,
you are responding to the wrong one, pull
your head out .
3. No mystery, plot, conspirousy, ect. Just something a
little too complicated for the average liberal pin-head to understand .
My boss says the orders determine the production rate and subsequent slot order. Spodesclam is right about the tanker, as well.
2007 looks like another record year for BA stockholders!
Looks like you and the boss are full of it. The line was advertized to be shut down soon without the tanker deal.
>>>"The new airplanes are slated for delivery beginning in 2009, extending into 2012, the company said in a statement."<<<
Boeing has reserved the slots for the tanker pending USAF tanker decision. If the USAF decides against BA, then the slots likely will close and the UPS production moved up. This is one reason why keeping the line open is expensive.
See, you can learn something new about how BA works on this message board!
Not strange at all. Boeing website shows 767 with 30 orders (before UPS 27). At 10-12 per year, it's good thru end of 2009. Then UPS orders kick in and if tanker is won, it would be easy to slightly increase rate (more efficient) and intersperse the UPS and AF planes. AF will only be buying about 12 a year anyway.
