No idea, can't find a reason anywhere.

How does an airline miss something like this so badly? 

"Uh, yeah, we'll take 70 of those $300 million planes.  Yes, 70 of them.  What's that?  Oh, yeah, include the undercoating.  And an extra key." 

7 years later . . . .

"Never mind, we won't need those 70 planes.  Right, seventy.  Yes, all $21 billion worth.  Yes, "billion" with a 'b'."

How in the world do they underestimate their equipment needs by $21 billion?  Very strange, unless they're going to replace the capacity provided by these planes with ones from another manufacturer.

Didn't they build some kind of real estate project call "The Palms" which went bust, too?

This article is pretty good, about the wild projections of tourism, investment, travel etc.

I think 9-11-2001 changed the world's ideas about travel to exotic arab muslim lands.

They did.  It was a monstrous project to vanity and ego where they built a whole series of manmade islands.

The plane orders were perhaps derived mostly in relation to expected travel to the islands, and other grandiose development projections.

The world sort of said that was a direct contradiction, of the al Qaeda end of the muslim-arab spectrum.
