With an announcement of expanding Boeing's India Managmeent Team, I wouldn't be surprised if some of these UFO are for Indian carriers, even some of the 787 UFOs. 9W has been interested in the 787 and they may have pulled the trigger.

At the beginning of the year, I didn't think there was much chance that Boeing would repeat 1000 sales in 2007. Now it's looking like there's a chance. Wow. This is definitely not sustainable.

My question is what airlines Airbus will find to sign 700 orders in Dec/Jan to pull another New Year's Surprise.

I can't believe the number of 737's going out the door, but the real interest is in the widebody competitions going on. I really want to see at least one order of significant size for the 748i.

I would lean toward a smaller carrier, and agree 9W sounds like a good option. I think when AA finally orders the 787, they're going to mean business, and not make a piddly little order for 8 planes. Might as well fill up as many "early" delivery slots as possible rather than chopping up the order and risk losing them. I think the same will go for UA or DL.

Certainly possible, though IMHO I expect "only" around 900 orders for the year, of which 600+ will be 737s. I mean, already 503 orders for the 737 alone, wow. Now it's time to wait for the monthly update to see which exact types all these UFOs are, then it might be easier to tell for who they are.

I agree... think about how huge AA's fleet is and how much they will be "replacing". Most legacy carriers orders are going to be pretty hefty given the size of the airlines.

IIRC Airbus already conceded this year in orders (IIRC at Farnborough). They don't expect to surpass Boeing this year.

How about Virgin Blue for the 787's? There's another topic going about them going international (Pacific Blue)

I think 5 of the 787 UFOs are for ILFC. Another 11 are for VN (exercising options). And the new batch of 8 I think are for 9W. I hope all will be revealed before year end as to who are the UFOs.

Actually, they are on pace for 888 or so, not 1000, but who knows? They could have a great Jan 1-15 and count it in the 2006 numbers and make 1000...

That's amazing...if they only need 150 777 airframes to reach 1,000...then it surely can't be that much harder to reach 1,050. That's how many 757s were produced. There have been 969 orders for the 767. The 747 has sold 1,441 (through August) but the 777 has sold at a much faster pace.

The 777 line is along term investment. I think they'll get 150 more in orders but it won't be this year. Perhaps in three to four years time they'll have it.

It's good to see that B787 sales have not slowed down in spite of the A350XWB announcement. Several months have passed since Farnborough, and except for the SIA "endorsment", there has been very little public interest from other airlines in the "new-all-new" A350, while the B787 continues to pick up a steady flow of orders. I think this is partially because airlines perceive the B787 as a more advanced airplane with bigger potential, as well as because Airbus credibility to deliver a completely new product in a flawless manner (meeting schedule commitments) has been compromized with A380.

Quoting Glom (Reply 19):

I think this is because the B777F is very expensive, and has strong competition from converted B744, as well as the B748F. Both represent a hell of good value. In case of a converted B744 you get more freight capacity for significantly less money (at the expense of fuel economy, but the initial price differential pays for many gallons of jet fuel). On the other hand, the B748F is not that much more expensive, has more capacity AND better fuel economy.

777F sales may soar if Boeing offer's it as the new USAF tanker. you're talking about over 500 tankers that need replacing that a KC-777 could fill. That would be an enormous boost that that line and keep it going for a very, very long time (20 year perhaps).
