Sorry may be a little misleading. It is the order tallly total for 380, still shows 139. Airbus don't seem to do so many unidentified orders these days, so the UPS, CZ and one other? orders have not been added, at least I don't think so.

Airbus only adds orders to the tally once the final contracts are signed. So far the UPS and CZ orders are 'just' commitments. The final paperwork is still being done. For example, the Etihad and thai orders were only added to the books in December, even though they had been announced months before that.

777ER, I too am cheering seeing ANY aircraft orders. It does look like we're finally exiting the post 9/11 travel recession.
CORULEZ05, alas, I'm afraid the USA airlines are going to have yet another tough year. With estimates of 8% growth in revenue passenger miles but a decrease in revenue for 2004... ugh... 2005 will be a tough year. With most USA airlines having negative enterprise values, I'm not sure when the recovery will be.
Congratulations to Airbus for a good month. and Boeing... it looks like there is light ahead. Now to see Embraer win a few more orders and Bombardier launch the C series.
