This orders is between the Emirates orders and the korean orders then maybe 20 planes.
He 's speaking from Le Bourget Salon , on BFM ( business radio) a kind of Bloomberg, it's serious and not a joke.

They will probobly announce both the Mexicana order for the A318(huge and much needed boost to the A318 program I might add), and the Qatar order for the A330's, maybe A345's, and finalizing the 2A380's.

Oh no, very good news!
As for "east of Europe", I wonder did he mean this literally, or "Eastern Europe". The only Eastern European possibility that comes to mind is Czech Airlines, which is looking for a 310 replacement, more than likely 332s (as Airbus doesn't sell too many 767s!).
Qatar is, however, most likely, being "east of Europe" and that order is likely to be announced tomorrow afternoon.
