CHICAGO (AP) - Boeing Co. says Lufthansa Cargo will buy five of its 777s, and LAN Airlines of Chile is buying five more 767s.
Both planes are among Boeing's larger aircraft. The freighter version of the 777 has a list price of $269 million, making the order from Lufthansa Cargo of Germany worth roughly $1.3 billion.
The 767s ordered by LAN would be worth almost $822 million. Discounts from Boeing's list prices are common.
LAN ordered three 767s in February. Orders for the passenger version of the 767 have been winding down, but it will be the basis for the new tanker that Boeing is making for the U.S. Air Force.
