Air Lease Corporation would be interested in new Boeing mid-sized aircraft at right price: CEO

    Air Lease Corporation CEO John Plueger commented on expectations for Boeing to launch a “new mid-sized airplane” (NMA), stating “I think… [Boeing] feel they have momentum from the customers and that they are building momentum internally for the business case” (Reuters, 23-Jan-2018). The aircraft would be configured with between 220 and 260 seats. “I think that they… are feeling better about the NMA, so I wouldn’t be surprised if some time this year we saw a decision about a launch or not a launch”, Mr Plueger said, adding Air Lease would be interested in the product for the right price.
