Aren't most, if not all of the current 36 A-320s new, or nearly new? This is pretty good for an airline that is only about 7 years old and now ordering 40 new A-320NEOs? 4O (IATA code) is a LCC for those who don't know this airline.

It will not affect their order. The SSJ-100's are destined for completely different markets as opposed to the A320.

Perhaps. But that is always subject to change in the airline world

Perhaps, but you need an initial goal of what you'll be doing with the aircraft before you place an order

Good growth pace for this airline.. Looks like the narrow body airbus will be the back bone of this airline for the future

I hope those SSJ 100 jets work out for them though

Now confirmed by Airbus:
http://www.airbus.com/presscentre/pr...purchase-agreement-for-40-a320neo/

The PR says "purchase agreement" so I'm not seeing this as firm yet.

I miss the simple days when all we had were orders and options. Now we have to filter through "commitments", LOIs, MOUs, "purchase rights" and now "purchase agreements".

What would be firmer than a purchase agreement to you? I don't know what the agreement looks like, but I would expect it to state the number of planes, the price to be paid, the payment dates, and the delivery dates. There may be conditions too, that are customary, such as absence of MAC's, securing financing, etc., but that would in no way mean this is not a firm deal.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Only that, to my best knowledge, it's not a term that Airbus has used before in a PR. If an order is firm, they've always been very clear about that in the past.

That said, I do now believe this to be firm as it's the only way that the A320neo numbers tally with the total of 1,515 that Airbus gave at a recent briefing.

Actually not so low cost. Average fares for a 1.5 hours roundtrip are in the 200 - 250 USD, in some cases up to 400 USD, no matter how much you anticipate your purchase.

A true LCC is the one for which you pay a 69 USD for a trip up to 1,000 miles, roundtrip. Viva aerobus is more like a LCC but they don't have the money or don't want to spend the money in new aircraft, delivered directly from the manufacturer.

I wasn't sure if it was firm either, as Airbus stated in the press release the neo had "almost 1,500 firm orders", which wouldn't have added up without a cancellation somewhere.

The use of the term LCC varies so much within the airline industry that now everybody calls an airline LCC if it is not a legacy and it has low operating costs. Until someone comes up with an approved definition of LCC, we will keep reading articles that refer to almost any non-legacy airline as LCC.

For example, I've heard people call Southwest an LCC and it is the airline with the highest costs in the USA (high productivity but extremely high costs).

I disagree. Low-cost is not the same as low-fare. An airline can be low-cost (i.e., an airline that has lower operating costs than its peers as a result of the employment of non-unionized crews/pilots/rampers, offering food and beverages for sale, having no F.F. program or a rudimentary one, etc.) and yet charge low fares or expensive fares. The "low cost" part of the designation is for the airline, not for you, the passenger.

People tend to confuse "low-cost" with "low-fares" and that is why many find themselves outraged when the likes of Brazil's Gol or Interjet have fares that are not much different from those of their "legacy" rivals such as AM-Transportes Aereos Meridionais (Brazil)">JJ and AM.
