Good news for U2 and Airbus. I wonder what new routes will be introduced and if any of the new orders will be earmarked to establish new bases.

I hope that easyJet remembers this time to employ sufficient staff to man the aircraft when they are introduced in their fleet, so we do not see a repeat of all cancellations etc that besieged the airline earlier this year due to 'staff shortages'.

That's a whole load of new metal. Good news for AB - anyone know if they are still doing the "sell plane instantly to leasing co" deal on these?

With this recent order by Easyjet it brings the total of Airbus orders for November up to 58 frames.

So now we have the following:

ALAFCO 6x A320
Easyjet 52x A320

Total: 58 Frames.

Pakistans Airblue placed an order for 2 A320s yesterday (or rather, it was announced yesterday) with negotiations ongoing for a further 4.

So thats 60, if these havent been counted elsewhere.

Great news for airbus and Easy Jet!

I know there are -converted- options for 319s but people/reports seem to be switching arbitrarily from 'A319' to 'A320' for 'new' airframe options for Easyjet. Which is it? Has Easyjet ordered A320s[sic]?

No theyve ordered A319s, which are part of the A320 family - all Easyjet have announced about options at this time is that they have '75 options for the A320', which everyone assumes is any of the A320 family because the options held up to now have also been labelled as A320 options.

Yes, really a super-seller. Airbus needs to boost the production rate to something like 40 per month, IMHO. Producing more of them will compensate for losses (currently) made by the A380.

This also shows, when you have a good product, you can sell it for a very long time and make money with it.

Hello All,

New possible routes show expansion to and from Athens (LGAV/ATH). I do not have a source for this yet, will post when I do. However, possible routes are from Geneva, Basel, and Paris to Athens. Also, there are negotiations going on with Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport for U2 to make a Hub there. Would be GREAT to see that happen.

I can confirm that easyJet Switzerland (!) has received slots to operate a daily ORY-ATH flight.

Sounds strange but would be cool!

By the way, well done easyJet!  Smile

Great news for Airbus, but I think the bigger news here is the almost 60% increase in profits by EasyJet in the face of high fuel costs. Now that is impressive.

That's correct Baroque. Our good Mate Nav20 was one of those that firmly believed that due to the A380 delays, all of the Airbus portfolio would suffer from lack of orders and that production would dry up pretty soon

So Nav20 if you have the chance to browse the following numbers, you will clearly notice that your prediction was off by a long shot.

I also seriously believe that Airbus is still holding back some goodies.

Airbus Orders 2006

525 x A32X

Total WB and NB Orders: 566 frames

Plenty of Pending orders to be booked. With many of them for the A330/A340/A350 and A380.

If the A322F program goes forward this year, you can easily add 30 frames, which Aercap committed to at Farnborough.

What is most interesting to note is not only that Easyjet converted another batch of its 100 remaining purchase rights to firm orders, but that they've also signed for another 75 additional purchase rights, despite them having 48 left from the first order from the end of 2002!

This means Easyjet now holds purchase rights for a further 123 A319 aircraft on top of the 104 A319 which they have firmed, yet are not yet delivered to them! Combined with the 88 which have already been delivered, this means their total commitment to the A319 now stands at a grand total of 315!

When all planes will be delivered, Easyjet will by far be the biggest single A32F operator in the world.

Just so you know, this is referred to as a "leaseback arrangement."

Ok lets set the facts straight:

easyJet have ordered another 52 A319s for delivery between 2008 and 2010 which is subject to share holder approval.

On top of that they have another 75 aircraft options with Airbus for delivery between 2012 and 2015.
