This article focuses on Boeing Co.'s aircraft order. Air Canada on April 25, 2005 reached a tentative agreement with Boeing for 18 firm orders and 18 options for new-model 777s, plus 14 firm orders and 46 options for 787s--with the aim of replenishing its aging wide-body fleet of about 65 aircraft over the next 10 years. The airline chose Boeing because of the economic efficiencies of the new-generation twin-engine aircraft. Meanwhile, the parties--the airline, the union and Canada's labor mediation board--are looking at efforts to iron out the issue that halted the order.
