Boeing and Air Lease Corporation announced an order Feb. 28 for 10 777-300ERs (extended range) airplanes. The order, valued at $3.2 billion at current list prices, adds to the growing portfolio of long-haul airplanes for the Los Angeles-based leasing company.

“This order for 777-300ERs will help us meet the growing airline demand for long-haul passenger airplanes,” said John L. Plueger, president and chief operating officer of Air Lease Corporation. “These 777-300ERs will enable our customers to grow and modernize their fleets. The 777 offers our clients the most economical, fuel-efficient and versatile airplane in the 300-400 seat range, suitable for a variety of profitable missions.”
