Lion Air is very close to a 60 aircraft order, most probably the B737-800/900 or A320. Lion Air expects to make the decision by the end of May.

Cheers, Konstantin G.

Interesting they had signed an MOU for 737-900 and then Airbus made a counter offer AFTER the deal was "done". I think they will stick with Boeing.

It was reported in this week's Flight International that the MOU was of the "loose, non-binding" variety, and was for 737-900X (if such a beast really exists).

They have received bids from both Airbus and Boeing and are currently negotiating on price. A winner may be selected by the end of the month.

A few thousand orders?? I think you'll find that both manufacturers have sold roughly equal numbers in the same time period.

I think Lion will stick with boeing unless the airbus price was very good.

and...

It was reported in this week's Flight International that the MOU was of the "loose, non-binding" variety, and was for 737-900X (if such a beast really exists)

They actually initially announced that they've ordered 40 of them or so, valued at a ridiculous price... It was in the newspapers here.

It was only after "someone" raised the improbability of such orders being signed that quickly that they then conceded that "Airbus was still revising their offer"...

Then someone mentioned that it couldn't be an order if Airbus is still offering...
Lo-and-behold... Lion then announced that the original order was actually an MOU...

So, where did ATW get the news from? Boeing? Airbus? Or "Antara" news agency or the local newspapers in Indonesia?

This is an airline that announced that GECAS is a Boeing subsidiary and CIT leasing is a McDD subsidiary, and CIT leased them MD90s (and guess what, CIT said "We do not have any MD90s in our portfolio") and that the 734 and MD90 deal is a sign of not only the financial community's confidence in them, but also the manufacturers... *yea rite*

Then you got the "Fly in our 1996 built planes" advert when their youngest plane was 1994 and the average fleet was 1985 and their sole 1996 MD80 had gone to another airline the year before...

Earlier this month, they had another incident in WAAA/Makassar where a tyre burst occured... and guess what, they accused the airport of "putting sharp objects" on the runway!

Pax numbers down, crew leaving, MX nightmare (overhauled planes impounded for not being paid), hotels demanding cash payments (no more hotel credits for JT in a lot of places), incidents about once a month... Do they really have the money to cover even the lease downpayments/deposits for such an order?

"To replace their MD80"????? Well MD80s going to "subsidiary" Wings Air (5 already there), and Lion is increasing their 734 fleet... Wings will also shut down their Dash8 ops due to falling loads, falling reliability.

We hear too many A Vs. B wars on here taking place between the resident pre-schoolers but I am yet to read WHY people prefer one to the other.

I'm an Airbus fan myself. I find the aircraft (particularly the narrow-bodies) far, far more comfortable, smoother, quieter and they tend to keep looking relatively new for some time, whereas Boeings tend to age (atleast in the cabins) more quickly.

I'd agree with the quieter, as for comfort, I never notice the difference. I think the cabin interiors have more to do with the airline that installs them and less with Boeing/Airbus. Does the noise have to do with the engines? I think that B6 operates with the IAE engines while WN has CFM engines. My question is, are the IAE engines quieter than the CFM ones?

I'll have to disagree. But I have flown the A320 many of times and they sound and feel like they are going to fall apart on take off. I think the NG 737's are a much better choice. Overall Cabin comfort is better and more attractive, Quieter, maneuverability and handling is better, fuel effciency, and the body style and sleekness. Hope they stick with Boeing.

From a passengers standpoint there isn't much difference in terms of overall comfort or quietness between the two.

However, I have noticed when flying UA and HP A319/A320s (the only ones I have flown) there is a loud almost deafening buzzing sound during take off that I have never heard on any other planes.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what that sound is?

Includes, but not limited to:

- Lower OEW than respective A32X competitor. Lower landing fees and fuel burn accordingly
- More advanced wing. Faster climb and higher cruise altitude.
- Greater resale value. Lower risk investment
- Low ground access. Less ground equippement required
- More advanced navigation and avionics. Still maintains advantage over 2003 Airbus avionics update, A320 not yet available with VSD, HUD, or GPS navigation

The 737NG is an excellent airplane, and meets or exceeds the A320 in nearly all comparisons.

Entirely the responsibility of the opperator and not the manufacture.

Yeah it does. Can be in service in 18 months from the time an airline places an order, been available for about 2 years but has not reached the critical mass (about 40 aircraft) necessary for launch. It is very likely to be launched in 2005...

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/210939_boeingjal07.html

Important to note that the 739X Boeing is marketing has some significant advantages over the A321-200.

Personally, I find the A320 more comfortable than the B737. However I have only ever flown in a Classic.

Does anyone out there have sufficient experience of both types with a range of operators to make an honest accessment.

Besides when did airlines start asking passengers if they would prefer an A320 or a B737NG. Does any airline operate both types.

You are? Wonderful. Please demonstrate some responsibility with your comments by showing us all some links / reports based on dB ratings inside the craft, as well as something substantial relating to seat pitch and airline operations.

Everything that I've read by you is nothing more than an inflammatory comment towards Boeing, or a happy circle-jerk over Airbus. Coming from the Netherlands with KLM being a national, would you be happy to see the 74x disappear? They flagship that Boeing, and are quite proud of it.

Stop throwing the gas on the fire. It's obvious that you get a thrill out of it, but it gets old... fast.

A true aviation enthusiast would encourage the competition. Somehow, you are stuck sucking on the teat of Airbus.

Let me pose this queston: Why do you not like Boeing aircraft? I'm looking forward to your answer.

Wow....relax..I like the 777,hate the 737 and love the airbus 320 and 340 because they are much more quiet and more spacious. Just my opinion so I don't have proof....

I dont have any links to demonstrate, but as a passenger I much prefer the A32X. It seems far quiter than any 737 I have ever flown on (Ive been on 732, 733, 734, 735, 737, 738 and 319, 320, 321). Also, the seats seem slightly wider in cattle class (but not much wider). But anyone who tries to claim the 737 is quieter is putting up a non-sense argument.

Seat pitch can be bigger on either plane, its down to how that airline specifies.

Wukka, if you have the noise specs please post them, I am interested to know.

Well clearly seat pitch is down to the airline, subject to the size of the cabin.

As for dB ratings, these will vary according to thrust levels, insulation, engine condition among other factors. Also two people hearing the same noise level will find it more or less intrusive.

Presumably Wukka as a true aviation enthusiast would encourage Airbus.

AirbusDriver, he said cruise altitude not Mach number. I notice that you do not quote the OEW either. As for avionics, I doubt that the 732 was built with a glass cockpit. I think that he is refering to the standard fit.
