FedEx orders 4 Boeing 777s, for a total of 17

Boeing Co. says cargo hauler FedEx has ordered four more of its 777s.

The order would be worth almost $1.08 billion at list prices for the freighter version, although discounts are common.

Boeing had previously shown the orders as for an unidentified customer. FedEx now has 17 of the planes on order.

Freighters are a big part of Boeing's airplane business. Last week, Korean Air ordered two more 747-8 freighters, worth a total of $639 million at list prices.
