Saudi order for 777X says Boeing.

Boeing sources are briefing the media that Saudi Arabian Airlines is about to make a large order for the Boeing 777X aircraft.

The unofficial briefing didn't stipulate the number of 777X jet's Saudi Arabian Airlines would order, although it is understood to be 20 confirmed frames and a few more possible options.

If the briefing is true and Boeing has secured an order for the 777X from Saudia, it is likely to be from the 80 surplice frames from the Iran Air order that the sanctions reimposed on that nation by President Trump, had halted.

There have been no comments from Saudi Arabian Airlines on the issue.
