FedEx reloads on 777s
FedEx Express has decided to exercise its option to purchase an additional 15 777 freighters, Boeing announced Monday.
The Memphis, Tenn., courier recently postponed delivery of its first tranche of 15 777s for a year or more because of a downturn in business. The planes are scheduled for delivery over the course of three years, beginning in 2010.
FedEx is the largest customer so far for the new 777 freighter.
