According to this article, Pegasus could have ordered 100 A320NEO's:
http://www.tasimasektoru.com/pegasus...7-milyar-dolarlik-ucak-aliyor.html

As I don't understand the Turkish language beyond google-translations, I'd ask somebody who is able to read the article properly to bring certainty.

If you run the text of the article through Google Translate, this is what you get:

Yes, it is not firm yet, but looks like the order will be signed on the 18th. 70 firm + 20 options for A320 NEOs.

Funny thing is; they only have 737s and the owner was very enthusiastic about the 737 -> even their call center phone number is 250 0 737 !!!

I know Pegasus did a RFP with both Airbus and Boeing back in July for an order for about 40 to 50 new planes, excluding options.

Looking at it, Airbus is the winner with an order for 70 A320NEO's, with an option for 20 planes.

Pegasus is currently operating around 40 planes, mainly B737's, with still a a dozen B737-800s to be delivered. I expected Pegasus to remain loyal to Boeing, so this can be seen as a coup for Airbus.

Cheers!

No, it won't. Boeing has a year now which is more or less comparable with the year Airbus had in 2011. The NEO was the big driver of sales for Airbus then, and the MAX is the big driver for the sales success Boeing has this year. Over time it will probably (more or less) even out in the market which is owned by Airbus and Boeing together.

If confirmed the NEO order-book will stand at 1649 frames!
The MAX order-book is at the moment 969.
I expect the NEO order-book might "always" be about 500-800 frames larger than the MAX because of the difference in EIS (about 18 months).

If this changes for the benefit of either Airbus or Boeing I would call it a "lead" by that model.
Otherwise they are pretty even IMO.

Our dear flood has summarized "everything" there is to know about the NEO and Max orders here:

Thanks!!

I find it surprising that the last 3 orders (185 frames) has gone to the NEO, resulting in almost 2 of 3 planes on firm order in this battle being NEO's.
IMO this is starting to look like some domination even though the MAX is to EIS some 18 months later.

The owner/CEO has talked about his personal dreams to connect his family home town of Adana with the world, however only last week there was a news story that he clearly stated there was no place for longhaul in the Pegasus LCC business model. I know Boeing has certainly made 787 presentations to Pegasus in the past.


Might also be interesting to know that Atlasjet got very close to acquiring A340s. They even signed a LOI with ILFC for a pair of ex Virgin Atlantic aircraft. Their plans were to offer both New York and Bangkok service. Unfortunately their ownership changed just at the juncture that this was happening which changed the companies strategy away from scheduled service back into more charter and ACMI flying which killed the deal.

This is great news for Airbuss, but it must be quite a concern to those airlines currently studying both types. If you assume a production rate of about 30 a month (which it will probably take some time to reach, being a new aircraft), that's about four and a half year's production. Assuming production begins on time and the first delivery takes place in 2015 as planned, then an airline ordering now would not get its own aircraft (i.e. ordered directly) much before 2020.

Looking at the current production list, lessors account for around 360 of the orders placed.

I agree totally - up to the point that I think TK does, in many markets. TK recently announced that it serves more countries than any other airline and it has ambitious growth plans for next year, not to mention a plan to order 100 narrowbody types next year. (I realise you're talking about the country, whereas I'm talking about TK!). One of the biggest challenges facing Turkish aviation, and by implication TK, is the lack of capacity at IST and the need to get the new airport opened NE of Istanbul by 2016 - a very tall order!

With the collapse of Syria, strife in Egypt and the isolation of Iran, Turkey's geopolitical importance is going up and up and that can only help Turkey economically, and indeed its airlines.

Thankfully for the airlines, real-world production isn't 'stacked-up' like that. For instance, AirAsia only planned on taking @ 25 NEO's a year. I don't know if that has changed with last month's order, but even if it did, my hunch would be that figure only increased by 2-4 more frames a year. Otherwise, you're talking about a HUGE capital expenditure in a very short time frame, and that would be a burden on even the most profitable of company's.

In addition, there is often also a certain amount of 'jockeying for position.' Case in point: this very order. Airbus was able to win the Pegasus deal by offering the airline Virgin America's 2015/16 slots.

I'm sure they're still studying it for the future. But the final decision will likely have to do with: a) their confidence in the supply chain being able to support it. And: b) what Boeing (and their respective supply chain) does as well.

As it stands, both Boeing and Airbus will be producing at 42/month very soon, which to my knowledge is unprecedented. Both in the number produced, as well as the fact they'll be producing at equal rates. Which is why we're seeing near-perfect parity in terms of orders.

In this specific case, availability seems to have been a significant factor. It's been suggested that Airbus was able to offer earlier slots thanks to the deferral of early neo deliveries by VX.

Despite what both OEMs claim with regard to their product vs the other, overall buying patterns suggest there's very little between them. So it looks as though earlier availability for neos swung it sufficiently for Pegasus to jump to Airbus.

Even before the order was placed the CEO of Pegasus had made public comments some 6-months ago that delivery of the 737 delivery would be 2-years later compared to Airbus.

Imo this order was Boeing's to lose, which they did. I'm sure the combination of earlier delivery slots, and competitive pricing was enough to push Pegasus into the Airbus camp.

Many carriers these days seems agnostic in the A vs B debate when the products are so comparative.

Congradulations to Airbus on this order. That is a sizeable conquest.
