So let's take bets. Who reaches their 60 frame order in actual deliveries:]

Lion Air
SkyBus
Both
Neither

I vote for Neither.

Skybus? U mean A320?

I think Lion Air wont be able to take all, but since JT is biggest LCC in my country, i have a big hope on it...

Unfortunately, there certainly appears to be quite a few start-up's with large order books and little chance of fulfilling them. To Lion Air and SkyBus, I think you can add IndiGo and Air Berlin (not a start-up, I know, but I don't see them taking all 120 737 & A320's on order).

JT is one shabby company and I am not holding my breadth for anything that happens till it happens. With the arrival of the new planes, lets hope they get their act together and tighten their safety regulations. Otherwise, what is to stop them from plunging a brand new 737-900 into a padi field?

What makes u think AK cannot take all the A320s? The large number will be delivered in batches. SQ ordered 77 777s and that doesn't mean they will swallow them ALL AT ONCE. Delivery in batches will be carried out through the times to replace the older ones.

I'm with you on that one. Wouldn't be the best advert for a new Boeing!

How can AirAsia earn? Let's say two planes arrives every month, that is equal to at least US$ 50 million bill. Can they earn that much each month? This is jus my humble opinion, I jus wanna share my idea, and know what your ideas are.

Wendy, the price of the airplane has nothing to do with the money paid on delivery. Typically aircraft are either leased or paid for with borrowed money. No airline has enough cash to pay for aircraft on delivery, at least not for a large order. The aircraft become one more secured item in the total debt portfolio of the airline, securing a (one hopes) the major chunk of the total debt.

Air Asia has ordered these planes for:

- Air Asia Malaysia
- Air Asia Thailand
- Air Asia Indonesia

Plus whatever new routes or subsidiaries they have in their plans. But as for 100++ planes in SE Asia, absolutely, but at a measured pace. They have so much room for growth, and are facing precious little serious competition.
