AIRLINERS.NET CREW FORUM MODERATOR
With the Farnborough International Airshow 2012 now upon us and the expected announcement of order from Airbus, Boeing, as well as manufacturers like Bombardier, Embraer, ATR, and Sukhoi, we are going to have dedicated threads for Airbus orders, Boeing orders, and one for other manufacturers.
The purpose of these threads is to keep a daily tabulation on any announcements made and to keep seperate each companies announcements. Though we understand there will be split orders, having the official threads should make it a lot easier to track orders for each OEM and make for a good reference for the future of the site.
We do realise that there will / may be major orders announced given recent speculation and some media reports. Therefore, if an order is announced and listed here, by a New A380 / 747-8 Operator, a Major A350 / B787 commitment or by a carrier of regional or strategic importance, it should be entitled to it's own seperate thread. We ask that order be posted here with a link to the relevent thread and a link back to this thread, that way a free and open discussion can be had on these orders without overwhelming the official threads.
This is the dedicated thread for the discussion of Airbus orders. The dedicated threads for Boeing and other manufacturers can be found here:

This thread is for the discussion of actual orders that have been announced, not rumored ones or for making speculations. If you want to post rumors and speculation on orders, please do so in the following thread and refrain from doing so in this thread (or the Boeing or Other Manufacturers threads):

Quoting na (Reply 12): Another disappointing order from CX.
"Another"? In recent times they've ordered quite a variety, range and number of models. In any case, I'd hardly characterise 26 new A350-1000 orders as "disappointing" (even if some come at the price of conversions from the A350-900.

Quoting CX Flyboy (Reply 20): Don't forget the 772s and the 343s. Thats another 16 planes + the 12 773s = 28.
I would have thought the A350-900 would have been tasked to those replacements, but CX does have 17 new A330-300s coming, so adding the 22 remaining A350-900s would cover replacement of the current 35-frame A330-300 fleet.

A reminder, this thread is for the discussion of announced orders and that's it. No comparing the number of orders of a Boeing a/c with that of a competing Airbus product, nothing in regards to rumored ordered. If users want to do that, do it in a separate thread. The Moderators have had to gut this thread a few times already because some of the participants are choosing to ignore the requests made of them by the Moderators.
