According to Flight Global, Aer Lingus has now firmed 4 of its outstanding A320 options. Still no word on the A350XWB order.

The EI XWB order is a strange one, the announced it last summer but it was never firmed and now it seems to of dropped-off the radar. Not so much "missing in action" rather "never made it to the battle field".

It was announced as 'firm, pending shareholder approval' but no extraordinary shareholder meeting was called over it.

Good news for Airbus and Aer Lingus. Apparently it will bring the short-haul fleet to 39 by 2011 but it will actually only bring the fleet to 37 including the one due in June so two more A320s must be coming either this year or in 2009.

The XWB order is a strange one, Aer Lingus mentioned it as recently as last month while talking about new routes to the US and Canada possibly starting in 2009 when the new A333s start arriving. They even have rough delivery dates for the A333s which were included in the order. The 2007 results will be announced on the 12th of March I'm sure there will more information then.

It was announced just before the Paris show, as Moo says "pending shareholder approval", but then in November, ATI had an article saying it had been firmed up. I have not see an official release from EI or Airbus since the initial announcement.

Maybe as Shamrock350 suggests, there will be more information on the order in the 2007 results briefing in March.

Still, nice to see additional A320s ordered/firmed.



Most Flown:- G-BUVA (20 Flights), EI-DEB (12 Flights), EI-JFK (11 Flights)

I think that puts total A320 family orders at around 6064 taking latest Airbus figures, amazing  spin
