Emirates and Qatar Airways the two fast-growing Gulf-based carriers are set to announce a number of firm orders that could add up to somewhere between 100 to 120 aircraft.
Qatar Airways would make the biggest shift as all-Airbus fleet operator. Qatar Airways would prerare an order for 50 (fifty) B787s.
Emirates has decided on A350, not the B787, but it could split its firm orders.

Here is a little more info - -
PARIS: Airbus is poised to announce around 100 orders for its new A350 plane — its response to the Boeing 787 — at the Paris air show in mid-June, La Tribune newspaper said. The daily said that among the companies which were placing orders for the A350 were Qatar Airways, which is expected to order around 60 planes. Airbus is hoping to clock up some 200 firm orders by the end of the year for its A350 plane, which is a more sophisticated version of its A330, but with modifications to improve range. Boeing has so far registered 261 orders for its 787, which is to be in service in 2008. Airbus currently only has 10 firm orders for the A350, which is expected to be in service by 2010.

Contrary to previous speculations that they would go for the B787 (including articles on respected news sources), now it looks that Qatar is leaning towards A350, at least based on the rumors propagated by Airbus and French newspapers. Airbus better get this order, or they will make big fools of themselves. Looks like the suspense will continue for few days.

What I don't understand is why these carriers are the ones expanding, when they have no population base of their own. In theory, the nations with burgeoning population growth; Pakistan, India, Egypt, Turkey, etc., should be the ones ordering these aircraft, no?

These two gateways, Doha and Dubai are strategically located between the east and the west so it could cater to traffic between these two sides of the globe.

Dubai is making every effort and to become a viable and growing tourist destination. It is already a duty-free port and is making strides in offering many tourist related attractions.

SQ was the same way decades ago when they started operations. Look at them today.

It was my thread. I'm still not sure why from the deletion notification. They called it house keeping.

So many damn rumors about who is ordering what. I wish we had some more concrete info, I guess I have to wait a week or too.

It appears so! News reports over the past couple of days, we have heard that Qatar is going with the A350 or the 787. Both Boeing & Airbus are rumoured to have won the order.

I guess time will tell.

This could be a new theory by me unless someone else has said it earlier, and that is that the two carriers which obviously have a lot of money will buy these A/Cs as launch customers and use it for a while as much as they want, and later when the type hopefully proves itself good and efficient, they sell it at reasonably good price compared to what they payed for it in the beginning. This could explain why emirates bought all these A380s. Do you all agree?

The contract normally forbids that.

"The contract normally forbids that."

Where did you get this from? Once the airline has acquired an airplace it can re-sell it for whatever price they want, as long as they can find a buyer who is willing to pay the price. The original seller can not prevent the new owner from setting the price of assets he now legally owns.

I'm also getting very impatient about this, who will order which aircraft. I do think it's risky if Airbus would rely on a few airlines for the success of the A350, just like how EK has ordered 43 A380. I really hope we will see more airlines order the A350 to spread the risk of being dependant on a handful of airlines. Good to both Boeing and Airbus!!!  angel
