Let me kick it off by asking who is welcome at the show and who is not?
I've heard a number of over 800 planes in total, certain planes are obviously welcome; like the different types of the larger manufacturers.

But are there many private planes on display?
If I were to own something "unique", would I be able to book a landing slot and a nice place on the apron?

Do private A/C of spectators and prospective customers land right at Farnborough during the Airshow, (for those fortunate enough to arrive that way?)

Is there enough parking for them?

How do they regulate departures and arrivals when there are demonstration T/O and landings and fly-bys happening?

This seens an order dated yesterday according to the website, but probably is an automatic generated page announcing an old order today! Xcuse me. ..
Can't they prevent this kind of misleading pages?

Since the EK 'order' is nothing but a conversion of a previously placed multi-type order by DAE, several sources have estimated that the order needs to be between 35 and 40 planes, otherwise the value of it is reduced.

I'd say it is going to be 36, just a bet.

We will also allow, and actually encourage, the creation of a separate thread for every aircraft or engine order being announced.

Just to add to the Moderators note. As the industry is recovering from the past years we are allowing each order to be discussed in its own thread. So please feel free to start a thread if you have a new order announcement. This can be from any OEM, not just Airbus and Boeing. Some orders already have their own threads so please feel free to participate in them;

I'd read the current position as :

EK 30 * 773ER (12 new and 18 already booked as a UFO)
Saudia 12 * 773ER (all previously a UFO)
Air Lease 51 * A32X (firm)
GECAS 40 * 737 (firm)
Aeroflot 11 * A330

with GECAS expected to order some A32X and Air Lease some 737s if the news report are to be believed - I think that the BA 787s are an accidental republising of an old news story (link no longer works)
