It has been reported by the Thai government/aviation board that Thai received a 32% discount on the A340-500/600s they ordered. Discounts are commonplace in almost every order.

Discounts are common in all orders but I do find this one a little large as it is not a launch customer and the plane is already in service. 25% is what I would call normal etc. Source??? My sources  Wink/being sarcastic

Well, both Boeing and Airbus have given up to around ~40% discounts in the past, so this is really nothing new. No airline buys at "sticker price".
