Brazil's TAM Airlines orders four Boeing 777s

Brazil's TAM Airlines orders four Boeing 777s

Aircraft maker Boeing Co. said Wednesday that Brazil's TAM airlines ordered four additional 777-300ER planes worth $1 billion (euro730 million) to $1.12 billion (euro820 million) at list prices.
Boeing said TAM was the first Latin American airline to add the long-range jetliner to its fleet when it placed an order for four planes earlier this year. Airlines typically negotiate steep discounts to published prices.
TAM Linhas Aereas SA said the new planes will help the company save fuel and increase its presence in the international market. It is set to receive its first of the planes in June 2008.
Since the launch of the widebody 777-300ER in 1990, Boeing has booked 1,003 orders for the aircraft.
