Easyjet orders 35 A319.
They didn't make it in time for last weeks Airshow, but now it is out on Reuters.
Easyjet says they are exercising options for 35 A319, to be delivered 2011-2012.

Good to see easyJet ordering new aircraft too! Considering the timeframe, this might be to repace the 737-700s?

WOW. Yet another order in such a short time period. It will be interesting to see who else did not have time to announce at the airshow.  Wink

Wings,

I never understood why is it so prestigiuos to order at the airshows. Does it mean that orders outside the airshow's timeframe are less important.

It was obvious that Airbus did not want to announce anything prior to the airshow, and than made it seem like they made all of those deals in 3 days

For both the manufacturer, as the airline, there is more media attention. At least in the Netherlands, orders before or after the airshow, hardly ever make it into the newspapers, and when they do, it's a 6-line article on the bottom of page 9. However, now with the airshow, many newspapers had a fairly large article on it, with a large photo in the Economics-section, and mentioned some of the orders: free publicity.

No I just think its a time when all the press are focused on one event so it gets more publicity which is good for Airbus/Boeing and the airlines concerned. Any order whether during or after any air show is very good . Just doesnt get the same amount of publicity.


Congrats to Airbus and EZY.

Congrats on that Soccer Under 21 win today. That team will be awesome in a couple of years. I know it's slightly off-topic, but I had to say that.

Getting back on topic, Airbus and Boeing is a duopoly and hardly need any publicity, if it's not one, its the other Smile

Like Joost very well pointed out, Le Bourget is a week in which all aviation world have their eyes fixed on the event. It can also work both ways as many of the smaller orders can be easily overshadowed by the larger ones.

Airbus went into the show with some big orders in their hands, although I believe that many of them were negotiated to the last minute.

Back to the topic!!
News story out on Bloomberg.
Very impressive growth by Easyjet.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=afupaycEA0Kw

EasyJet converted options into a firm order, with the first planes to be delivered in 2011, the Luton, England-based airline said in a statement. The carrier now has 122 aircraft on firm order from Airbus valued at $7 billion and purchase rights for another 88 planes.

The airline, which expects to increase capacity by 15 percent in the year through September, has started 14 routes this year and will add 16 before the end of 2007. EasyJet opened a base in Madrid in February, its 17th Europewide, confronting larger discount competitor Ryanair Holdings Plc.

No hard feelings Dallasnewark, but you didnt have to say that. Thats the type of comments that makes this great forum less fun. If you dont have any positive to say, please be quiet and let other people enjoy what they like.

How come the A319's got 2 exit's at the over wing area just like the A320's is it due too the fact that Easy Jet has a high density seating and from a certain amount of passengers more exists are required?

So this leaves them with 122 on order, does anyone know what their fleet currently is - IIRC it's about 150 Airbii and 50 odd 737s?

Yes, easyjet has 156 seats on their A319's, so the second exit is required.

IIRC Easyjet's A319s are unique in this sense they have the centre section of the A320 fuse in a A319 length plane.

Yes they do - not to sell planes, but to sell shares and ensure they keen their share price propped up.

Congratulations to Airbus. The orders are rolling in for them. It's good to see them coming on strong after all the issues they've had lately. And Boeing is also doing well, so it's all good.  biggrin 

As I seem to recall, Cebu Air of the Phillipines also has the two overwing exits per side arrangement as well on their A319s.

Cheers, Ralph

in an article i read was that the a319 was 15 % more efficienrt than 737 300s . how does a319 compare 737-700
also what is the range of the easyjet 319 in the 156 seating config?
These A/C dont have hf so cant go oceanic so if these are replacing 700s will the routes from belfast be affected since they are oceanic?

Only differ in details. The 737-700 is a little lighter, but also usually sells at a slightly higher price, while the A319 is wider and Airbus is said to give greater discounts. The Boeing consumes about 50-70kg/h less fuel, but has 149 seats at max compared to 156 on the Airbus. The Airbus should have a small advantage in range despite the higher seat config. Also A320S aircraft can handle containerized cargo. Finally it is matter of taste and your remaining business.

I seem to recall reading somewhere quite a while ago that, although easyJet A319's have 156 seats, they were only going to sell 149 to avoid the need for a 4th flight attendant. Was this change ever implemented or was it just something they were considering?

Another great order for Airbus. Another Great order for CFM.
