International Lease Finance Corp. on Tuesday announced its first aircraft orders in three years, including 100 Airbus A320 jets and 33 737-800s built by Boeing. The planes have a value of more than $11 billion at list prices. The order marks a turnaround for the world's second-largest aircraft lessor, which has been sidelined since parent company American International Group was pushed to the brink of insolvency by the financial crisis and forced to accept a federal bailout.
