As you all know, the Farnborough International Airshow is taking place on 19-25 July 2010. As this is a very important event, we are creating this official thread with the purpose of providing a summation of everything happening during the event.
We will also allow, and actually encourage, the creation of a separate thread for every aircraft or engine order being announced.

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?

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.
Have you ever flown on it? The thing is the best long hauler out there from a PAX point of view. Made the mistake of bringing my family over to KL via SIN on an SQ bird. My son will not fly anything but SQ A380 from now on!!! Mind you he was starting from a low level, his favorite airline used to be DL!!!

No, I still haven't!!!
Maybe just after I will experience a flight on it... I will change my mind, exactly as your son did.

On the Airbus website.
Air Lease Corporation (ALC), the recently formed aircraft financing and leasing company, has chosen to place its first firm order for new aircraft directly from a manufacturer with Airbus. The order is for 20 A321 aircraft and 31 A320 aircraft.

Quoting Moderators (Thread starter): 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)
25 Stitch: Well 12 of them are new orders (to add to the 18 they previously ordered as UFOs). And an order is an order. I mean EK's 32 A388s were a "compensatio

32 Chiad: But I think that we should remove 18 x 77W for EK and 12 x 77W for Saudia since they were already in the books and not from the Airshow. The 11 x A33
33 Lumberton: General Electric is having a huge day with the GE90 and CFM. I wonder how many of Hazy's 51 A320/A321s will be CFM powered?
34 FCKC: French newspaper "Les Echos" says LAN Chile (and probably all their affiliates) will announce an up to 70 A320s order at the show.
