Mates telling me an EK order of either 60x772LR or 30X772LR + 30X773ER next week at the DXB airshow.

Anyone confirm ?

I'd count on EK announcing a big order at the Dubai Airshow, especially in the 787/A350 category. A350 is rumored to be the favorite. This could easily be a deal for 50 too.

Of those, the 2 A340-500s, about five 777-300ERs and one of the A310F have meanwhile been delivered.

That would be an amazing order for the 772LR, but it isn't going to happen. It will 99% most likely be going to Airbus for probably 50 A350s. The EK order will guarantee that Airbus will reach the 200 mark for the A350 this year. I'm going to guess that they'll order 10 772LRs and maybe some more 773ERs.

There have been rumors that they might cancel the A346HGW, but probably not since they seem to have an insatiable demand for aircraft.

The only way Boeing can win the 787 vs A350 battle with EK is to offer the 787-10. Not going to happen seeing how Airbus recently said 200 orders again by years end.

Airbus is close enough to the 200 mark to be able to get there without the EK order.

I still fail to see where EK will ever be able to turn a profit so rapidly with such an aggressive fleet build-up. Things along the magnitude of such an order backlog as what EK has usually happen less gradually - I think EK may be biting more than they can chew.

Don't forget once those A350-900s or B787-10s start coming online, EK will get rid of their 777-200ERs... so it's more like one for one swap rather than adding more planes to the fleet...

EK will probably emerge as a player in leasing when they cascade earlier fleet models, such as the A332, 772ER etc.

Their operation is being built and expanded constantly. The early aircraft could even go forward to become freighters as EK Cargo is a major ongoing project with the new DXB facility designed for large volumes of freight.

If that's the case (meaning >260 with EK), then the 787 is a bit of a disappointment. The A350 will have sold at twice the rate in that case. What is wrong with Boeing's sales team? Supposedly, the 787 has the edge because of its new Yellowstone technology.

Maybe, - but the 787-10 would probably cannibalize the 772ER orderbook, - all Boing's talk about the 787-10 is just to keep Airbus busy, - and they even have to discount the A359 further because of that - very smart I may say.

Have a look at justplanes.com

Numbers for the A350 orders/ commitments:
Air Europa 10
ALAFCO 12
CIT 5
Eurofly 3
GECAS 10
Kingfisher Airlines 5
Qatar Airways 60
TAM 8

Total:113

I am not sure it is updated (US Airways orders do not appear). 200 a/c by year end looks difficult but not impossible.

Regarding the huge EK orders, if their strategy fails they can always set up an a/c leasing company  Smile

add US airways for 20 and an undisclosed customer (still) for 10. That's 143.

My 2 cents:

Cancel A340-600s and use the deposits for A350s.
Order 777-200LRs and lease out/sell A340-500s.
Order more 777-300ERs.

But Leahy is only saying 200, and it isn't quite so firm an assertion. I'm just saying that they could be predicting 200 without it. Anyway Boeing's delivery slots are almost filled for the first few years through beyond EIS for the A350, which one has to admit is a rather long time away for the airline industry. It's hard to imagine that aircraft orders for delivery 5 to 8 years from now won't have escape clauses so that the airline doesn't jeopardize its future if unforseen circumstances arise.

The order book for the older generation 777s is less than that for the 777LRs, which is growing at a fast rate. Moreover the delivery rate for the older 777s greatly exceeds the order rate, with only 8 firm net orders+2 commitments versus 18 delivered. The order book is decreasing, and Boeing will have to respond. Morever, Boeing has never had a strong A333 competitor in the 772A, and the 787-10X would be just as much an A333/772A replacement as a 772ER/A343 replacement. That is something that favors the 787-10 introductions. I would argue it is only a matter of time, but that time is likely going to be determined by factors such ending of surge deliveries for 787-8s and 787-9s, engineering resources being available, and higher thrust engine availability.

The only alternative Boeing has is a 777 fuselage upgrade, which will involve greater R&D expenditures. On the otherhand, Boeing's peak delivery ability will be greater with both the 787 and 777 lines.
