     Boullioun, one of the world's premier leasing companies, leases aircraft
 worldwide to airlines for itself and in collaboration with its affiliate,
 Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise (S.A.L.E.), in which it holds a
 35.5 percent stake.  Since 1994, the two companies have ordered 64 Boeing
 airplanes, plus options.  Boullioun, founded in 1986 by aviation industry
 veteran E.H. "Tex" Boullioun, is owned by Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale
 (WestLB) of Dusseldorf/Munster, Germany.
     "Boullioun recognizes the value of the 737 family," said Boullioun
 President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Genise.  "We are delighted to
 place our first Boeing 737-800 with City Bird, a valued and long-standing
 customer."
     The 737-800, which can fly up to 2,905 nautical miles (5,380 kilometers)
 in a one-class configuration, features an all-new, spacious Boeing 777-style
 interior.  It has the most advanced-design technology in the single-aisle
 market, such as an all-new wing and updated liquid-crystal displays in the
 flight deck.
     "The 737 continues to be the best-selling airplane in its class," said
 Nicole Piasecki, vice president, Sales, Leasing for Boeing Commercial
 Airplanes.  "Boullioun has recognized its workhorse qualities and has made it
 one of the mainstays of the company's leasing strategy."
     The 737-800 offers higher capacity than competing models, presenting
 airlines with the opportunity to achieve better value for their customers.
 The higher cruising altitude and significantly better range of the 737-800 are
 added advantages.
