Add some A320's for Kingfisher. I believe it's 4 firm + 8 options.


Flanders + Wallonnia + Brussels = the UNITED STATES of BELGIUM

What is this? A competition?  Wink/being sarcastic

I think Turkish made an interesting decision to go with the A320-family and 738s.

Were the 744F regulars or ERF?

The Turkish order is more puzzling than interesting IMHO. With the 320 AND 321 along with the 738s, it seems me that they are purchasing the aircraft with specific destinations in mind rather than a overall fleet standardization thus the mix.

Cheers,

He said the aircraft and engines will be delivered in 2005 and 2006.

There's a novel concept - delivering the planes and engines at the same time! Or did he mean delivering planes in 2005 and engines in 2006?  Smile

Two engines wouldn't power two 747s! I think that there might be an error there somewhere. The price looks way out for two. Unless it's two additional engines on top of the eight required.

Huge Airbus order stuns Boeing
From The Times
July 22, 2004

AIRBUS, the European aircraft maker, has shown rival Boeing a clean pair of heels by announcing a massive $US7 billion ($9.6 billion) order from one of the world's fastest growing airlines.

Airbus said it would sell 24 aircraft, including four A380s, to Etihad Airways, an airline based in Abu Dhabi that made its first commercial flight only eight months ago.

Etihad's decision to buy Airbus rather than Boeing underlines the growing advantage Airbus has established over its US rival. Earlier this week Airbus said it would increase production by 50percent from just over 300 aircraft a year to 450 a year by 2006.

By contrast, Boeing expects to produce only 285 aircraft this year and the same number in 2005.

Airbus's production increase had taken industry experts at Farnborough Air Show by surprise, but the deal with Etihad goes some way to explaining its bullishness.

Airbus president and chief executive Noel Forgeard said the European group would deliver one or two aircraft a month to Etihad between January 2006 and the end of 2007. The airline has options to buy a further 12 aircraft on top of the 24 firm orders that were announced yesterday.

Dr Ahmed Bin Saif al Nahyan, of Etihad, said: "We have been in discussions for over a year now with both Boeing and Airbus."

He said the main reason for choosing Airbus over Boeing was that it offered a package of training and maintenance.

That was important because of the airline's rapid expansion, he said. Etihad, launched in November 2003, is owned by the Abu Dhabi Government.

Etihad wants to become another EK or SQ, with a hub at Abu Dhabi.

Again it's investing in the future, a future when oil revenues won't be around. The location of the Gulf is geographically kind to them as well, being at the centre of the asia-africa-europe land masses.

The Turkish order is very simple. Order Airbus aircraft to gain entry into the EU (never going to happen.) Order some Boeing aircraft so the American president continues to state publicly that you should be in the EU.

Very simple. Big grin

I find it interesting the decisions made by companies financed primarily with oil money. As the regions oil production decreases it will be interesting to see what happens with the local airlines.

Quick question. Is one of the requirements for an order be that Airbus makes a "Credit Check" on the buyer to see indeed if they have the financial backing to make such a purchase?
