That's gross, not net.

The US order, for example, is 72 net frames, not 92. September's net total was 791, not 845. That makes 791+72+30+50= 943 net orders, assuming the Wizz order is actually firm.

That's still amazing!

Well, even after deducting the cancellations and previous signed orders from the total number, Airbus should be pretty close to the 1000 mark now, and there are still 2 and a half month to go, in which it is said several large orders are still pending!

If Airbus secures half of them, 2007 could turn out to be their best year EVER, also on the WB front!

Talking about coming back stronger than ever...

Indeed, that would make more then 400 widebody orders for Airbus a new record. When will the EK competition end? I'm not sure but believe end october?

Who knows... first they say the order will be announced in 2008, then they say end of 2007, then they say Dubai Air Show...

And apart from Paris, historically, they still have the busiest part of their usual year to come.  yes 

A few more 380s and JLs cup will be flowing over. Now to build the b*****s!

Still, our very own (Aus) ABC has been assuring us on the Radio news, that QF has ordered 20 A380s and they will be delivered in June 2008 - not one but 20 according to them! So who knows what Airbus might be capable of!  angel   angel  Just wish the ABC were correct. Probably so does QF.

It is also noticeable that far from fading away in the widebody field, Airbus must be having a record widebody year? I would look up the Airbus table, but my browser is not feeling well after having to fight with a.net. But that has to be about right. And the 330 is having a record year.

The only shadow on the horizon at present seems to be the rise and rise of the Euro - but that leaves the Eurozone sharing the same problems as a few other parts of the world! And quite a few of the bits are from USD areas.

Congrats to Airbus. Looks like another tight race for the title of sales king this year, since Boeing also has several outstanding large orders.

Absolutely stunning, especially the WB orders. Good job to Airbus, especially given that the WB orders are a nice spread of A330, A350 and A380, and not centered on only one type.

A320 sales, while stunningly strong, are slowing down a bit. Till when are slots sold out?

It's good to see growth in the aviation industry and continued strong orders. That's good for all of aviation. I may be biased (for good reason) towards their competitor, but congratulations to Airbus.

I've heard it's sold out past 2010, but it's a vague number. Production numbers could change as Airbus is attempting to increase A320 production. Also, airpalnes are not ordered sequentially, so there are slots available to certain customers and some dates that are probably not firmed up before then.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The amazing run continues for another year (for both A & B). I didn't think we'd see this for a 3rd year in a row, but there it is nevertheless. Good times for the industry at least on the manufacturers' side. This ordering boom can't last forever, but the backlogs may tide both companies over during any upcoming downturn in the cycle. I hope so for the job security of our colleauges at both A & B.

You would think that 80 dollar oil would have slowed orders. But the ABC Lateline Business commenting on the strength of the Qantas price opined that with some phrase like the moderation in the price of oil, the outlook was excellent. I guess Aus is a bit different as our rising dollar has been beneficial for oil priced in USD.

Comes to something when 650 orders in 9 months is a "slowdown", doesn't it?  Smile
Absolutely awesome!
It seems that every time they up the production rate, the backlog INCREASES.........

ROFL. No slowdown. They should book 900 or so by yearend.

And the 737NG will once again fall behind, as more new carriers choose the A320.

Despite the very strong overall sales in the world, this must be a concern for Boeing and it's why I think 737RS is moving along faster than some believe.

The future growth is in 125-300 seats, and Boeing wants to be a leader in that market. Right now Airbus is the leader in the narrowbody, and the "old" A330 is holding up against the 787 well enough, with the smaller A350 also garnering orders.

Title is correct. Airbus received more than a 1000 orders in 2007.

At least 172 frames were firmed so far in October.

Does this 1000 firm orders for 2007, include the 50 A320's Wizzair the Central European LCC has annouced today?

Just curious, as this could add even more... Also how does it compare to Boeing?

Im not in anyway saying the information in this thread is not true, but is there any offical announcement or news article confirming this? A link would be cool!

What is amazing is not that Airbus, or Boeing have already sold 800+ and 900+ airplanes this year. It is the fact the the two airplane manufacturing giants have sold a combined 5500+ airplanes over the last 3 years.
