    Boeing's Next Generation 737 with Gol logo Brazilian airline Gol has ordered 40 Boeing's Next-Generation 737 passenger aircraft. The announcement of the new acquisition was made this Wednesday, January 2. The airplanes will be included in Boeing's 2007 order total.

    The order brings to 127 the number of Next-Generation airplanes Gol has ordered since beginning operations in Brazil in January of 2001. Gol has also confirmed the purchase rights for an additional 40 737s, for a total of 167 737s in the company's projected fleet.

    According to its manufacturer, the Next-Generation 737 series is the most technologically advanced airplane family in the single-aisle market.

    The airplane's market success is confirmed by air finance investors, who consistently rank it as the most preferred airplane due to its wide market base, superior efficiency and lowest operating costs in its class.

    To this day, 110 customers have already placed orders for more than 4,400 Next- Generation 737s. Unfilled orders for the Next-Generation 737, says Boeing, exceed 1,900 airplanes, worth over US$ 140 billion at list prices.

    "Gol has garnered international attention by consistently posting profits since beginning operations, and the 737 has been a large part of that success," said John Wojick, Boeing's vice president of Sales for Latin America and the Caribbean.

    "The Next-Generation 737 enables Gol to continue providing passengers reliable, on-time performance while benefiting from the airplane's reliability and fast airport turnaround times."

    "This new contract will help to further reduce our costs and allow us to continue to modernize our fleet with owned aircraft while offering our passengers the lowest fares in the market," said Fernando Rockert de Magalhães, Gol's technical vice president.

      Here you make better sense. You should stick to promoting U.S. technology and avoid getting involved in religious discussions.

      If the A380 is the Jab
      The A350 is the next punch, that may well put Airbus on the mat. A blend of the old and the new, a potentially dangerous mixing of technologies resulting from a hurry-up program to compete with the 787, which they didnÀ‚´t think was going to be a problem for them until it was too late.

      Thanks for not buying Airbus
      Airbus sucks with it’s A380 superjumbo gamble. The plane was 3 years behind delivery schedule and most airports around the world are not going to retrofit to be able to handle this plane (jetways, terminal expansion to handle over 500 passenger congestion, landing strips, etc). Airbus’ are sold in US dollars and with the “weak” U.S. dollar, U.S. made Boeing superior high-tech airplanes are more attractive to buyers, and Airbus will not see a profit on it’s white elephant A380 for at least 12~15 years. The Europeans have not learned from the money losing Concorde. Google “A380 white elephant” for more info.

      Thank you GOL for buying Boeing.
