The corrected release reads:


International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), a wholly owned subsidiary of
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG), announced today that it has
expanded its order for CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines to power an
additional 20 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft, bringing the total of its
LEAP-powered A320neo Family aircraft to 60. The aircraft are scheduled for
delivery beginning in 2016. This newest engine order is valued at $510 million
U.S. at list price.

“Expanding our order for the LEAP engines to power more of ILFC’s Airbus
A320neo Family aircraft is a reflection of our company’s long-standing
commitment to providing our global customers with a choice of the industry’s
most technologically advanced products,” said ILFC Chief Executive Officer
Henri Courpron. “CFM is our largest aircraft engine supplier, and we continue
to look to the manufacturer’s future engine generation for advancements in new
technologies that offer operational and economic efficiencies for our
customers’ fleets.”

“This order is a continuation of what has already been a phenomenally good
relationship,” said Kevin McAllister, Vice President of Sales for CFM parent
company GE Aviation. “We are excited to bring all of the benefits of LEAP
technology ─ double-digit improvements in fuel burn, noise, and carbon and NOx
emissions with CFM reliability ─ to ILFC and its customers.”

“We believe these engines will prove to be real assets for ILFC and its
lessees,” said President and Chief Executive Officer of CFM International
Jean-Paul Ebanga. “The more testing we do, the more confident we become that
the LEAP family is a more than worthy successor to the CFM56 engines and will
become a critical part of airline fleets around the globe.”

CFM International (CFM) has set aggressive technical targets for the LEAP
program and testing to date confirms that the engine is meeting those goals.
Compared to today’s best engines, LEAP engines are expected to provide ILFC
customers with 15 percent better fuel efficiency, which equates to an equal
reduction in CO[2] emissions; a 50 percent margin compared to today’s oxides
of nitrogen (NOx) requirements; and meet the newly announced 2018 ICAO noise
requirements with significant margin, all with CFM’s legendary reliability and
comparable maintenance costs.
