Boeing sells 10 jets to Ethiopian Airlines

Ethiopian Airlines has placed an order for 10 737-800s, Boeing said Friday.

The deal is worth $767 million at list prices, but after discounts, it’s more likely the airline paid closer to $535 million.

The airline has been expanding, notes Flight International. It’s got 45 planes on order right now, including five 777-200LRs and 10 787s, along with today’s 737s.

The deal appears to be Boeing’s first of the year. The company previously had said it had won an order for 10 737s from an unnamed customer.

The 737 is Boeing’s best-selling jet, built by District 751 Members in Renton. More Union labor goes into the 737 than any other Boeing airplane, and the ability of those Union workers to deliver at a rate of more than one plane a day is said by many analysts to be key to Boeing’s cash flow
