They signed a MoI with Airbus for the A350 and said they'd sign for up to 60 when the plane met their requirements. I'd bet that the plane now does meet those requirements but whther they're happy with waiting until 2013 we'll have to see - expect to see it firmed pretty quickly if ithey're happy.
This has set me thinking, I wonder when we'll see the first signed XWB order?

Not a joke LY, I expect Airbus and QR to announce the 60 firm in the next two weeks, no reason to hold off now and Don Juan will be anxious to level the gap in order value for the year. Soon we'll be calling John "Leahy of Arabia" for all the time he spends down there.
