Quoting Osiris30 (Reply 3): Anyone else have a mixed feeling about this announcement.
It doesn't look like this press conference is set up to make any announcements regarding the status of the A350 program.
But never say never, it has been rumoured for a few days now that the A350 will get her 'go ahead' before the end of the month, perhaps Mr. Leahy has some surprises this evening (or morning, wherever you're watching).

Press conference just finished.
-Airbus has 619 orders YTD.
(508 at the end of october, makes 111 so far this month of which 52 for Easyjet).
-Airbus forecast 23000 aircraft in the next 20 years, about 1300 VLA's.
-Mr. Leahy said he's talking to several customers who might purchase extra A380s and is also in talks to a low cost carrier for A330s (his answer when asked if low cost carriers might be interested in the A380).

Quoting CM767 (Reply 11): One question about E. figures vs B., is 91-120 Seats a RJ market or SA, must of us claim that the E-190 and the E-195 are not RJs
Maybe that is why Northwest are thinking of replacing DC's with the E190's. Perhaps the definition is changing. That order is said to be looming or is it the 100 reserves made when they placed the order for E170's last month. reserve slots then convert to an order next year!

Mr. Leahy did not say that. I suspect that this total is gross. For the real number of cancellations we will have to wait untill Airbus releases the number somewhere in januari. Some members try to keep up to date with cancellations, but those can't be with 100% certainty taken as correct.
Quoting Centrair (Reply 19): I guess Airbus only needs 203 to 210 orders to take the the lead.
Mr. Leahy has already said that he does not expect to overtake Boeing, this year. They do have a sufficient number of pending orders to add roughly another 250 or so aircraft, but that's without looking at Boeings pending orders and without deducting any of those pending Airbus orders that might be included in the YTD total.
