For those here , having problem with French , would say this article is not so interesting , except the last words.

A nice Qatar order + another one from a Turkish airline are expected at Le Bourget Air Show.

Qatar was already known , but what about the Turkish order.

I can't see an order coming from Turkey , except THY.A32X family + A350XWB , despite their 777 order ?

Quoting Titus95 (Thread starter):
Qatar was already known

An order from QR was expected, but the nature of it was unknown (i.e. Airbus and/or Boeing).

My schoolboy French was never that good, but the article only seems to mention a Turkish airline and not THY specifically.

Schoolboy French or not, this made me laugh!

There are some rumors about a considerable order for A320's. Probably they want to counter flydubai, Al-Baker hinted not long ago that QR can setup a LCC in 60/90 days. There were also rumors that QR want to start an all premium brand.

All the above rumors points towards an order of narrowbody.

If we speak about a considerable A320 QR order , and if they want to counter FlyDubai , probably we speak about an order in the region of 50 units.Not bad........

Well, the QR has been talked about for a while now.

And the "Turkish" order, a "big" THY order has been expected since the beginning of this year. The have postponed it twice and it wouldn't surprise me that the official announcement is being withheld until the Paris Air Show (plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose).

Talking about QR and TK: what happened to the 2 A330's parked a long time @ DOH ?

Did they, indeed, go to TK, or was the lease cancelled ?



don't throw away tomorrow !

THY will probably order the 25/30 A350XWB's and 40 A320's, it is growing despite the crisis.

QR will be an A320 order, maybe even some follow-up A380's, but that could be just wishful thinking.

First line intelligence, buddy  Wink

Just kidding, just read this: http://www.reuters.com/article/etfNews/idUSLI6380320081218

Obvious deduction is
-B787 is not available until 2020 with delays and backlog,
-B777 is not a long term option, just interim (that's why the recent B773ER order was for only 5 pieces and the 9W leases were only extended for 2 years while waiting for the new machines to come).

Widebody is going A350XWB, Airbus probably has some A350 slots available 2014-2015.
25-30 is ideal, and seen that the A350XWB is running rather strong, Airbus is not going to be able to offer many "option" slots.

Narrowbody will probably tend to be A320.
I don't expect it to be a 50-strong order though, more like a 35-40 for deliveries starting 2011, they just got new A320's and alot of their B737NG's are new.
