IMO Eurofly backed out as they don´t see the need for more long-haul capacity beyond their current A330-200 fleet and have decided to not-commit ressources at this moment. Can remember that some weeks ago a member on this board hinted towards them having some problems at the moment. They might become a B787 customer but I doubt it - unlilkely that they would be able to get any ordered frame before 2013.
Quote: The agreement is for 15 A350-800 XWBs in addition to the five converted from their original order for the A350
Press reports suggest the IT MOU will be firmed "any day now".
GECAS - will not order the A350 until it has GE engines under the wing, but, since they never signed a firm order, this doesn't represent a real cancellation. Amusingly, Leahy confirms this is the first order he's ever "lost" because of the unavailability of a specific engine. Interestingly, and very surprising given its popularity, GECAS hasn't yet ordered the 787.
Not really a regional, they mostly fly holidays charter and long-haul vacation flight. Not the kind of market addressed by a regional airline.
Quoting Scbriml (Reply 5): Eurofly - not going to take A350 (in the Flight article, Leahy is suggesting they are looking to convert the order to A330s)
I don't think they are going to order anything soon, they are getting back their fourth A330 from Air Plus Comet of Spain (they leased it to them as soon as it left the factory, and shlould 1 or 2 years old).
They have some financial troubles, but they are also working to "fix" it. Since GJ has been bought by Meridiana (IG), they have added route, many of them profitable (like FCO-JFK), and will start more new routes in the spring (I have heard of MXP-SEZ).
