AIRBUS A330/A340 Thread -- By Wings

Well after being asked by several members, I have updated the A330/A340 thread so that we can all keep a better track of what is happening, with this family of aircraft.

We can also conclude that to this present date, Airbus has secured a total of 156 orders for the A330 family with an additional 77 pending orders. If Airbus manages to firm up all those orders then the grand total comes to 233 frames ordered in 2007.  Smile

But the best thing is that the year isn't over yet, with great potential for some more to be announced.  Wink

On a less positive note the A340 family has suffered a total of 26 cancellations + 6 conversion. Despite this fact, the A340 series managed to secure a total of 12 orders + 5 pending orders in 2007

It has been a very good year for the A-330, and the A-330F. Congradulations, Airbus.

Let's face it, the A-340 is a dog compared to other airplanes in this class, her stable mate, the A-330, and from Boeing the B-767 and B-777. Even the B-767 has out sold the A-340 this year.

Quoting WINGS (Thread starter):
Firm/Pending Total:

This seems to be a contradiction to me. Firm means the customer definately wants these airplanes, and is less likely to cancel the order. While pending means the customer is leaning towards an order, but has not committed to these airplanes, yet, and still could cancel.

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 2):
While pending means the customer is leaning towards an order

Typically, the term "pending" is used on a.net when an airline has announced its intention to order the plane (or has signed an LOI or MOU), but hasn't yet signed a firm contract. The pending "orders" are not listed or counted by Airbus or Boeing. BA's recent announcement that it would order A380s and 787s is a good example of a pending order.

Hamlet69's excellent order threads keep track of these pending orders.

This year the A330 has already broken its previous sales record (110 frames ) and will most likely manage to double that previous sales record set in the year 2000.  Smile

The A340 has proved to be a reliable workhorse for the airlines that operate it. Its no wonder that not a single A340 is currently parked in the desert.

Since when does the 767 compete with the A340? Its pointless to compare them both, as they serve two different markets, while the majority of 767 sales recorded this year are for freighters.

Pending basically means that its currently a LOI/MOU which has yet to be firmed up.  Wink

That's correct. Airbus currently have three more A340-300 to be delivered. Finnair x 2 and a Private Customer x 1.  Sad

So it would be Finnair x 2 and the rest would be A333's and that would be 5 or 6 planes??

No doubt it will be the best year for A330.

The list is correct. Please check again.

Quoting Teme82 (Reply 8):

Finnair ordered 7 A330/340 in early 2007. From that order they have opted to split the order for 6 x A333 and 1 x A343.

When announcing the final split between the A330/A340 in September, Finnair announced that they were firming up one option for the A333. This takes their total to 7 A333's on order.

Finnair also has one outstanding A343 order placed in 2006. So with one A343 order from 2006 and another from 2007, gives them a total of 2 A343's to be delivered.  Wink

Its a little confusing, but as soon as Airbus updates their O/D spread sheet, everything will be more clear.

Wings

Plenty of rumours circulating regarding upcoming orders.

Jet Airways
Air India
Conviasa


I also expect to see more A332F orders in the near future, hopefully at Dubai, and then we also have the 767 vs A332 battle for the USAF.

That's a very strong possibility, in my opinion, just a question as to whether it's finalised this year.

Well isn't that a interesting development. I also suspected that it would be a matter of time before they committed to those options.

They might as well secure some delivery slots, especially as they are filling up quickly, even with output increasing to 9+ units per month for the A330/A340 line.

Quoting PanAm_DC10 (Reply 15):

This is what I have been wondering myself. Plenty of leasing companies committed to the A332F, and still plenty of them to be allocated. The A332F for 9W, makes great sense.

Quoting Bobnwa (Reply 16):

The recent A330 order has the option to be converted to the A340 series, if US Airways sees a need. So until they confirm/convert, the order will appear only for the A330 series.

If true, it will be another feather in the cap of the A330.

Emirates is looking at the moment for capacity, and A333 would be a perfect interim plane for them. It can carry loads of cargo over a distance EK''s A332 fly to. The longest destination that is served by an EK 332 is probably Hong Kong, and its still more than enough range for an A333.

The Dubai Air Show is just around the corner and we will see.

Great job WINGS, and I appreciate your work in this thread!

Well Airbus has finally updated their spread sheet, with the following orders taking place.

US Airways 10 x A332
Private Customer 1x A332

With these confirmations the total of A330 orders in 2007 increases to 167 frames

This also leaves Airbus with an extra 60 frames that have yet to be firmed up.

Also to note that Airbus has not yet confirmed Finnair's conversion of six A343's for the A333 and the extra order also placed during the conversion.
