US lessor Aviation Capital Group (ACG) ordered 17 Boeing 737NGs in a deal valued at more than $1 billion at current list prices.

Previously, Boeing had attributed the order to an unidentified customer on its web site.

Including the latest aircraft, ACG has ordered a total of 81 Boeing aircraft: 76 737s and five 787s. That total includes 15 Next Generation 737 delivery positions that ACG acquired from Delta Air Lines in 2006.
