 BOEING CONFIRMS ADDITIONAL JETLINER ORDERS
 SEATTLE, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing Commercial Airplane Group


today confirmed that five airlines have placed 34 more jetliners on firm Order with a total value of about $3.1 billion.
 Some of these announcements are options that have been converted in past months. Others have been under contract for some time, but not publicly announced by the airline, while still others reflect recent contract signing of earlier announced intentions. EUROPE
 British Airways earlier this year added eight more 747-400s, with a value of about $1.1 billion, through option conversions and new firm orders. This brings the airline's order total for the 747-400 to 50, making it the largest customer for the type. In addition, British Airways has confirmed three more 767-300s with extended-range capability. Value of these three is about $240 million. The airline now has announced orders for a total of 25 Boeing 767-300s, all with extended range capability.
 Aer Lingus of Ireland has added another 737-400 and three more 737-500s, for about $140 million. This brings the airline's announced new-generation 737 orders to 16. UNITED STATES
 During 1991, United Airlines exercised orders for 10 optioned Boeing 767-300ERs from its original 1989 order of 16 firm and 16 options. The 10 are valued at about $800 million. The airline now has 26 of the long-range twinjets on firm order.
 Delta Air Lines, one of Boeing's largest customers for the twinjet 757, converted options for four more, valued at more than $200 million. The airline now has ordered 88 of the fuel-efficient twinjets. ASIA-PACIFIC
 Boeing also confirmed that Qantas of Australia has added four more 747-400s, in addition to one that was delivered and already counted as an announced order in November. The airline now has announced orders for 18 747-400s. In addition, another Qantas 767-300ER was confirmed, bringing the airline's total 767-300 orders to 13. Value of these five aircraft is about $630 million.
 These additions bring the Boeing confirmed order total for 1991 to 252 jetliners, with an estimated value of about $20.26 billion. By type the announced orders include 72 737s, 38 747s, 43 757s, 72 767s and 27 777s.
