Interesting indeed. I would suspect IB placing an A350 order(?). About the 40 A32X order speculation, I have no idea but indeed MH is evaluating its narrowbody requirements. What an interesting event this year's Paris Air Show has been so far. Despite Boeing not having announced a 787 order, they already have a very healthy orderbook for the 787 and the 737 orders give a nice finishing touch to the Boeing orderbook. On Airbus's side, well, we all know which orders have been placed during the show. All in all, both Boeing and Airbus have a healthy orderbook and the aviation appears to be rising again

Quoting A388 (Reply 2): All in all, both Boeing and Airbus have a healthy orderboo
Thank you A388! Wise words coming from simply observation. Why is it that a lot of B fans thought A was dead until last week and A fans think B is dead right now? Two healthy companies being competitive against each other and both having a full order book. I hope they will keep pushing each other to great achievements!
There's still a long way to go before all the alliances deserve a star...

Does anybody know when will be announcements done today, usually it is on Airbus website, but they announce just live flying display at 14:00 today. If I remember well they said that morning announcement is not 100% sure, but morning is not over yet....
