Seems that we have the first airlines which intends to place an order at the Singapore Air Show:

- Go Air, India, apparently for the A32S

Obviously we should also expect the medium-range decision from SIA and the A350/787 announcement from Emirates. Possibly the Aeroflot order as well

Yep, seems Go Air will be making this year's first large double digit narrow body announcement.... For the A320 family of course, if there would still be any doubt left as to what is the preferred plane in this category.

Wonder what the time frame for delivery will be, because manufacturing slots are getting tight in TLS and XFW. Maybe Airbus will need to up the production rate once more and hire even more than the planned 5,500 new workers this year alone to keep more or less pace with demand? Or is this one of those Asian orders that could be assembled in the new Chinese Airbus factory? Would be nice to announce it on an Asian airshow then, just to make sure to hit the headlines in the press allover the continent.

I went to the Aerodrome India Expo 2005 in BLR in Dec 05 and Boeing were there. The Chief of Manufacturing hinted the Boeing will be investing heavily in India. I wonder if Airbus will follow suit and create a plant there in the near future. I posted the same question to the lady who does the Airbus factory guide in Toulouse (again in Dec 05 - day trip) and she was like "watch this space"....we might be getting a big announcement from Airbus instead of the airlines....you never know

Now thats some deal, i just hope the new players dont rap up quickly. I know for sure Indian, Air India, Jet, Kingfisher and Air deccan are here to stay.

We will have to wait and watch about the new comers.

Thanks for the info.

Some day i should be flying on one of the carriers.

I wouldn't expect to see QF or EK make announcements. I think SQ will be the main one and that's going to be 787/772LR/748-IF (not 100% sure about the last one).

Should be a good show and of course, there'll be a fair few smaller orders.

Do not expect EK A350/787 decisions so early at the Singapore Air Show.
Airbus will freeze the definitive version of the A350 not before March , and Boeing didn't yet launch the 787-10 version.
Are we sure SIA will announce their order at the show ?
Seems too early for QR to announce anything about their 777/A346 contest , as probably Airbus didn't yet take any definitive decision about a new A346E model.

Nope, the honour of the first double digit narrow body announcement has already gone to Airbus, twice in fact.  Wink

1: 9 x A320s & 5 x A321s for an Undisclosed Customer as announced by Airbus last week and booked on January 2nd

http://www.airbus.com/en/corporate/orders_and_deliveries/#

2: 14 + 6 A319 for Hamburg International, granted they were booked last year but Airbus only confirmed it on Feb 13th

http://www.airbus.com/en/presscentre...319_hamburg_international_eng.html

Back on topic. It will be an interesting show, the more so given this will be the last time the event will be held in Singapore. SQ could well be the main focus though given the complexity and size of their order they may not, yet, be in a position to announce anything.

Here are a couple that are from the region but no-one seems to have mentioned which we may see "firmed" up.

Viva Macau, 12 x A350 or B787-8

CR Airways, Details of the LoI for 737s & 787s announced in December

Jagson Airlines, May finalise their order and Lease requirements for 13 + 6 A321s which their CEO recently stated they were in final negotiations for.

Philippine Airlines, they are apparently deciding between 4-6 A340/B777 so maybe an announcement from them.

EVA, they had an RFP for 10-12 A320s or 737NG to replace MD-90s, last heard no final decision had been made.

We may also see S.A.L.E. announce placement of some of their outstanding orders with some carriers on the Leasing front too.

Looks like many of us have forgotten about the smaller players out their. This Airshow also promises to be very interesting.

Are SQ evaluating the 787-8 & 9, or will they wait until the -10 is availible? I would have thought they are only interested in aircfaft larger than the 787-9.

The B787-8 would allow SQ to increase 3x/4x weekly service to some European cities to daily which would increase yields.

PanAm_DC10

Always great informations from you.Very appreciated Sir !!!!

I have some comments about what you wrote

Viva Macau is already supposed to have chosen the 787.Firmed up at the show ?

If PR purchase A340s or 777s , do they have in sight to reopen European routes ? Will be nice to see them again at CDG.
Despite surely they will not place any A380 order at the show , do they still are interested in this plane , as the CEO declared some months ago.Would be ideal for their Californian routes.

The A320 order that Eva is planning to announce (at the show ?) is not for them , but for their affiliate Uni Air.


Perhaps some surprises at the show , despite Singapore traditionnally is not the place where many orders are announced.

Thank you Wings & FCKC always nice talking orders with you  Smile

Quoting FCKC (Reply 9):
With Aeroflot we never know

So true, a report today carried by Reuters quoting a Russian publication states that Airbus have re-tendered their proposal. So the RFP is still open. Interestingly, it states 22 firm plus 12 options so it appears they increased the RFP. Anyway, I doubt we'll see that order announced.

Quoting Tifoso (Reply 12):
Garuda's 787s have not been firmed up either. Let's hope it happens.

Garuda have their financial problems. In fact, they may well Lease their 787s in which case we may find out whom ILFC or LCaL have placed some of their frames with**. Again, I'm not so sure we'll see this one announced.

Quoting FCKC (Reply 17):
Viva Macau is already supposed to have chosen the 787.Firmed up at the show

Their decision does appear to favour the 787-8 though we've all learnt it's not over until it's signed. Just look at QRs "LoI" for the 777s and the status of it now.

Quoting FCKC (Reply 17):
If PR purchase A340s or 777s , do they have in sight to reopen European routes ? Will be nice to see them again at CDG.

The question here is, what becomes of the deposits that Boeing retain for the 4 x 744 PAX that are deferred? That is the issue which will resolve this order, in my opinion anyway.

Quoting FCKC (Reply 17):
The A320 order that Eva is planning to announce (at the show ?) is not for them , but for their affiliate Uni Air.

You are correct and I thank you for the clarification. Please note I did not say that the order would be announced at the show, rather, it's a regional RFP which is yet to be announced and may be announced at the show.

**There is a possibility that another carrier from the region may do that instead, just a hunch and I could well be wrong  Wink

http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/060216/s....v=40

Thank you PhilSquares for the link. From that link I shall take the following text;

Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president, Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will provide an overview of South and Southeast Asia's commercial aviation industry and the company's products and services that are supporting this growth market.

Here is my "wildcard" call. Spicejet, finally, confirm their 10 737 Options Conversions with Boeing on a formal basis. 738s & 739ERs and further Options and some Leases too.

Quoting FCKC (Reply 17):

Again, you raise a valid point. I mean don't Boeing let their customer's announce their orders when it suits the customer and not them? That said, last year seemed to see them take a slightly different stance to that policy in response to the unprecedented year that 2005 was. Let's hope that we see some order announcements so we can see the ensuing discussion's on certain carriers and their fleet plans.

Many thanks again PanAm_DC10 for all these clarifications.
I totally forgot the deposits PR has made with Boeing for these 4 744s.
Is it an indication they will go 777 ? Can Airbus pay for these deposits to win the order ? In fact the key is : how much money did PR already give to Boeing ?

Yes Airbus has proposed (as already mentionned in a new topic) a 100M$ discount to Aeroflot.Certainly Boeing will react , and then Airbus , then Boeing , till one of them will say :"We can't go further" , thus we will know the name of the winner.I also do not forget the compensations Russia will have , as Airbus and Boeing are ready to invest in this country , especially for the A350 and 787 programms.

Boeing vs. Airbus: The next bout

Quote:
All Nippon, Japan's second-largest carrier, is poised to place a firm order this month for 53 long-range planes estimated at $13 billion from Boeing. The Tokyo-based airline wants to use the 365-seat 777-300ERs to replace its fleet of Boeing 747 and 777 planes, passing over the Airbus A380.

This is the stunner which was first discussed last summer. Firm orders!

Please note, I answered your question with that information before the other thread was posted  Wink

As an aside, TAM today announced they will take 4 extra A320s in 2006

We should also take in account what Mr Forgeard of EADS has stated about the Airshow, the following is a fair use excerpt from a Bloomberg;

By Sandrine Rastello: Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) --
Airbus is unlikely to announce any ``major'' contract during the Singapore air show next week, Forgeard also said, according to Les Echos.


I guess we'll find out his definition of major next week!

Lumberton Thank you for the report, it is very interesting to see talk emanate for that order again, the more so given ANA are undertaking a Capital raising to fund new aircraft purchases.
