CO for 13 787 and 26 737s
Sky Airlines for 3 737-900ERs
CX exercise of 2 777-300ER options (can the 20 777s be QR?)

405 confirmed orders is amazing after last year

103 wide bodies, even more amazing, more than Airbuses total sales to date.

The 747 is selling at or above production rate, and the 767 even got orders from 2 airlines.

302 737s is very unexpected to say the least, but it is a very good plane.

Congratulations to CO on their order. Two of the three Texas airlines are healthy and ordering planes, and the third isn't doing too bad either -- I can't wait until they start buying the 787.

Regarding CO order.... The news released talked about 10 B787s and 24 B737s airplanes, but the orders sheet shows 13 and 26, respectively. Why the difference?

In 2004 CO ordered 10 787-800s, up until this week only 7 of those commitments were finalized. This latest CO 787 order firmed up the three remaining from their 2004 order plus an additional 10 787s.

They now have a total of 20 firm orders for 787s.

There's a bunch more 737 UFOs as well - I count 11 added. That's 72 total which is a lot of UFOs. Maybe some are set for announcements at the Farnsborough Air Show to counter any Airbus announcements.

Well, almost. Airus has 105 total orders this year. Not that remarkable compared to Boeing indeed. If they don't have something up their sleeve at Farnborough, they will most likely cede the salescrown to Boeing this year. We will just have to wait and see.

On top of all of this, every single A350 order is in flux (whether Airbus admits it or not) so that could be a potential step backwards by that many frames (though it is unlikely that they would lose all of those.)

Not entirely true. Finnair stated that they aren't bothered by this. That's from Finnair themselves, not Airbus. US Airways also stated they are not worried. From a couple others nothing has been heard in the media (like TAM and TAM), so we can only speculate about them. Main problem for Airbus is QR, especially since it has not been firmed up yet.

No, they said they don't really care what happens to the A350, not that they will take them no matter what. That's a big difference.

US doesn't really need A350s anyway (no need for the range...), and if they have to take discounted A330s instead, US would do it happily, now that their loan is repaid to Airbus.

Those A350s aren't in any real need, they were more a product of Airbus's exit finanacing for US. They are in no hurry to get new or more widebody jets anyhow.

Granted, but they aren't (openly) threatening Airbus that they cancel the order either, which was the point I was making. N328KF implied that every order was 'in flux', but that is simply not true, besides other airlines have not said anything, so there is no way for us to know what they have told Airbus about these developments.

Absolutely amazing, although the fact the A320 production line is reported to be (almost) fully packed for the coming years will also have contributed to the success of the 737NG this year. I do not want to do any dishonour to the 737 itself, but it is quite significant to see it surge of orders the year AFTER the A320 sold roughly 900 copies!

How long would you have to wait if you were to replace let's say 30 or so MD-80/737/A320 with an equal number of either 737NG or A320? Anybody has a good idea for both A and B? I think delivery dates are starting to play a big factor in deciding for the 737NG...

Again, no bashing intended, just trying to understand the reasons behind the numbers.

You're tottaly off. Take a lookat Boeing's order sheet and you'll see that the 737 sales are driven by existing customer not due to lack of delivery slots for the A320. The 737 sales are due to the fact that customers want the 737 over the A320.

Don't feel so quickly attacked, just because I dare to state the 737NG might be selling so strong because it is 'second best', with the 'best' not available within a reasonable time frame no more...

Anyway, most of the 737NG orders have in fact been follow up orders if I understand you correctly? Well, in that case it is logic to see them ordering more of what they already have, since the 737NG is a very good plane indeed.

He should consider another alternative explanation: Airbus was desperate to win the orders race last year so they sold A320s at firesale prices, as that was the only aircraft that they could sell large numbers of to meet Boeing's more balanced portfolio.  Smile

By the way, if Airbus has to cancel the current A350, should we put an asterix next to last years orders race win for a new reason, that the numbers included orders for an aircraft that apparently is not going to see the light of day.

You make a very valid point when you say that the lack of available A320 slots slows down her sales numbers. Here's just one example.

Ural Airlines wanted to purchase 2 new A320's, but because Airbus could not deliver them before 2009, they decided to lease them.

That's a claim which has been coming back for more than 2 decades now, but each year EADS post really good audited annual results, mainly thanks to Airbus SAS. Obviously, what they did last year will only be verifiable in the future, but until then I'd be reluctant to state such things, based on their continued double digit profit margins from the past.

Besides, I was just applying a general thought: in times of great imbalance between demand and availability, the 'second best' will match and possibly outsell the 'best' once its production has reached max capacity.

It was a logic I have seen used many times to state the A350 might pick up orders once the 787 production line has been fully sold (and in case no second line would be opened), and in my humble opinion we see (or will soon see) it being demonstrated by the 737NG too.

Does the order count of a year from the past normally gets corrected retro-actively if X years down the road it appears not all planes ordered then are actually delivered? I thought the order count was CLOSED on December 31st of any given year and represented the legally binding intentions of airlines made public in that year, not their actual taking of the planes: for that you'd need to look at deliveries... But I doubt that would be more favourable for B, as they will have a hard time outdoing A on that front this decade, since deliveries always lag on sales.

I think the lack of orders for Airbus in the first half of this year compared to December for last is a strong indication that they were competing for the record. They drained the pipeline of things that would have been booked in the course of the following year. They also had the advantage of booking their Chinese order for 150 A320s all last year. Boeing booked 50 of the 70 announced last year in 2005, and has so far in 2006 booked only 70 of the 150 orders (though they could already be UFOs, so they might have booked more). Any evaluation of the competitiveness of the 737 versus A320 based on 2005 results is going to be less than informative due to Airbus's desire to book A320 orders in 2005 to win the crown. I suspect the two year totals at the end of this year will be very close for the A320 and the 737.

That's why I said put an asterix next to it. The number is in the books, but if it is partly based on a program that never sees the light of day, the meaningfulness of that number is less.
