Seattle: Aircraft maker Boeing Co. confirmed Monday that 10 planes ordered in the first quarter were listed in an unidentified category on its web site.
The company said Indian airliner Air Sahara had ordered 10 next-generation 737-800 airplanes. The planes are valued at more than $700 million at list prices, and deliveries are scheduled to begin in mid-2009.
