Quoting Flying-Tiger (Thread starter): Lufthansat02. May - 2 x A330-300
Air France 02. May - 12 x A320, 6x A321
Private Customer 13. May - 2 x A318
British Airways 27. May - 2 x A320
MTAD (for Royal Air Force) 28. May - 14 x A330-200
According to the spreadsheet total orders incl. May now shows 470.
In breakup it also shows 324 NBs and 143 WBs.
In addition there's 35 cancellations, mostly A350 conversions I think.

I'm guess that the BA order for 2 A320s is to replace the two that were converted to A318 orders for the London City to New York service. That's a bonus as I'd expected that this would be a net zero order for airbus.

Quoting Vfw614 (Reply 7): Media reports say that among A350s 12 A318s have been cancelled - who has cancelled those?
US had a bit of a tidy up and cancelled some A318s but ordered some A320s (I think) at the same time effectively swapping the orders - net effect zero.
Quoting Ivo (Reply 4): 5/27/2008 British AW 2x A318
This appears to of been done as a conversion - two orders for the A318 no appear against BA but no actual order was placed. However they placed an order for two A320s in May which would suggest that two existing orders for the A320 have been converted and two replacement A320 orders placed.
