    SEATTLE, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE:   BA) has delivered Lauda

 Boeing 737-700 to operate out of Austria.

     Vienna-based Lauda Air, which has ordered eight Next-Generation 737s, will
 use the airplane for scheduled service in Europe and on charter routes to
 Greece, Spain and Turkey.  The carrier already has Next-Generation 737-600s
 and 737-800s in its fleet.
     "We are very pleased with the reliability and performance of the
 Next-Generation 737," said Ferdinand Schmidt, Lauda Air chief executive
 officer.  "The 737-700 is the ideal airplane for Lauda to use in transporting
 business travelers throughout Europe."
     The airline also operates several other Boeing models, including
 767-300ERs, its flagship 777-200ERs, 737-400s and 737-300s.
     The Boeing 737-700 can fly up to 3,260 nautical miles (6,037 kilometers),
 the farthest of the three Next-Generation 737 models.  It offers the highest
 dispatch reliability and lowest operating costs in its class and features an
 all-new, spacious 777-style interior.  It also has the most advanced-design
 technology in the single-aisle market, with such features as an all-new wing
 and updated liquid-crystal displays in the flight deck.
     Building a quieter, more fuel-efficient airplane was a top priority for
 Boeing engineers designing the 737-700 and other members of the
 Next-Generation 737 family.  The new, advanced-technology wing design on the
 models helps improve fuel efficiency.  The model's new CFM56-7 engines
 produced by CFMI, a joint venture of General Electric Co. of the United States
 and Snecma of France, meet community noise restrictions well below current
 Stage 3 limits and below expected Stage 4 limits.  Emissions also are reduced
 beyond required standards.
     Lauda Air started operating in 1985, when it ordered its first Boeing
 airplane, a 737-300.
