To kick off this thread, here is the first announced order for 2014. Reuters - Air Algerie signs deals to buy Airbus, Boeing jets

Quote:

* Deals to strengthen domestic, international routes

* Boeing purchase for 737-800 jets, $724 million cost

* Air Algerie facing rivalries on foreign routes

- The order is also for 3 three A330-200s. They will finance with the Algerian state banks.
- Deliveries starting September 2014 through end of 2016.

With the current activity and commitments to be firmed up 2014 seems to be very promising order-wise for Airbus and Boeing.
I wouldn't be surprised if we'll see another year with 1000 with both manufactures.

Deliveries should reach record levels as well.
Does anyone know if Airbus or Boeing has published their goals for deliveries?

I would expect Airbus's target to be around 660, Boeing's should be somewhat higher if they can smooth out 787 deliveries.

Dang.. the thread is about new orders, and it took 11 posts to clutter it up with leases, 2013 data and production forecasters..
Let's just keep this on for announced sales by the manufacturers.. otherwise it wanders into rumor and wishing.

From the previous thread, quoting Flood:

Quote:
Per Airbus' order spreadsheet QR has apparently converted its order for six A319neo to five A320neo.
Initially reported by flightglobal pro which I don't subscribe to, so I'm not aware of any other details.

A German aviation magazine is now reporting that QR has converted all of their 19 A 319NEO orders into 320NEO orders, meaning the launch customer for this version is not interested any longer in this version. Out of all NEO orders just 1% is for 319NEOs.

I put Airbus at under 640 and Boeing conservatively at 730. By value the picture tilts heavier towards Boeing as 78% of Airbus deliveries are single aisle compared to 68% at Boeing. Boeing's deliveries will be worth about 25% more in dollar volume than Airbus this year. I don't see this changing until the A350 gets up to speed in several years time.

Incidentally I thought that order was for 7 77Fs and 1 77W but Boeing has them all going to Air China cargo.

Interesting news: "Airbus reached 1,619 gross orders, 11 more than in the previous record year of 2011 and 88 more than Boeing received in 2013. Net orders (1,503) were also above the previous high mark."
http://www.aviationweek.com/Article....e-xml/awx_01_13_2014_p0-653903.xml

So by Boeing not firming the EK order Airbus won the order race in a battle that I am not sure they are really fighting. Very close year. Unbelievable numbers.

Almost unbelievable indeed. And very good for both OEM's.  .

Since the EK B777-X order was not finalised in 2013 Boeing will have a huge head start for 2014 in the WB-market.

Yes. Should be MU for 20 and CZ for 10 (though I might have that reversed). In fact, CZ's first frame just rolled out at PAE. The other order for 7 should be QR.

The 7 unit order is more of a toss up. CAPA also has a 7 unit order for EVA and I know QR made an order for 7 units at Le Bourget so I am still not sure. I can't find the 7-unit order for Air China Karel.

Sure you're not thinking of the 8 F's they got from CX? When Boeing booked that order, it was listed as UFO for a while, and only 'disclosed' them last month.

Otherwise I haven't heard of CA taking 7 more 77W, although it wouldn't surprise me, either.

If they want something bigger, they could convert the order into -9s. That said, I guess it would push deliveries into the 2020s due to the large 787 backlog. If they want sometime in the short term, the A330 regional with 400 seats might suit them well.

I would have thought -10s would be better for them, but then the wait would be even longer as well.

I can see them ordering A333s now and then 787-10s at a later date.

No, not at all. AA ordered 130 A321neo directly from Airbus. They also ordered 130 A319/321ceo from leasing companies (which is where they're listed in the Airbus O&D spreadsheet). AA also added another 7 A321ceos in January - if you look at AA's entry in the 'Worldwide' tab of the O&D spreadsheet, it now shows AA having ordered 137 A321 (with no distinction between ceo and neo).

At the end of Jan, the O&D spreadsheet shows AA A319 orders as 0, deliveries as 0, but operated as 15. Those 15 have come from leasing companies. The corresponding orders and deliveries will be listed under the leasing company. The only way to see which leasing companies have provided planes to AA is to watch the 'Deliveries' tab of the O&D spreadsheet.

December 2013's shows the following deliveries:
02-12 1 x A321 CIT (American Airlines)
16-12 1 x A321 CIT (American Airlines)
17-12 1 x A321 CIT (American Airlines)
17-12 1 x A319 Z/C Aviation Partners One LLC (American Airlines)
20-12 1 x A321 CIT (American Airlines)

So, the four A321s will be listed as orders by and deliveries to CIT, but will be added to the operated number for AA. All the info is in the spreadsheets, but it does take a little detective work to find.

The questtion is how many of the 130 A319/A321ceo's are covered by leases as of today. maybe AA found it cheaper to buy these 7 A321 than to lease them. I saw a statement from SUH lately that for every A321 delivered to ALC he can choose at least from two interested airlines and therefore (more of less) dictate the leasing rate. So it is not clear to me that these are really 7 additional aircraft.

Unless you know all the allocations of all the outstanding lessor orders, I'd say you won't know until AA stops taking ceos.

Quoting StTim (Reply 64):

They are clearly new orders as far as Airbus is concerned, because there was no corresponding cancellation of seven A321s (although that could follow at a later date). We'll have to wait for a while to see how many ceos AA ends up with.

Looks like Asiana is buying about 14 A380s and 8 A350s. Though it isn't very obvious what portion of the 14 A380s will be new orders vs the 6? that they already have on order. If I am not mistaken this would make them tied for the third largest operator of the type if they are all new orders.

The article seems a bit unclear, at least to me.

It starts with "Asiana Airlines will buy at least 14 superjumbo and other airliners from Airbus Group through 2018". That sounds like it could mean 14 airliners in total. It then quotes Asiana's chairman as saying they will order 30 total large airlines though an as yet determined date. It notes that Asiana will receive two A380s this year, and then will order two new A380s in 2015 and two more in 2017. it also notes they will order 8 A350s.

So if they order 8 A350s and 4 A380s, that is 12 of the 14 new planes.

And will these 8 A350s be new orders, or a conversion of their 8 A350-800s to the -900 or -1000?

And 4 new A380s on top of their current 6 would be a total of 10 for the type.

Are we sure that it is not the case of a journalist mixing up orders and deliveries. You could read the way that they "purchase" i.e. get produced frames in these years, and the number of "orders" suspiciously coincides with the planned deliveries

There is a lesson in journalism (and careful reading) some where in here. I read the same paragraph and found 14 new A380s being purchased and now that I read it again, I think it is indeed deliveries and there are no further A380s being reported. That is a big difference.

No, it's not. Flightglobal have used a somewhat confusing turn of phrase. To "firm up" means to "confirm" an order. You could rewrite the headline as "Amedeo confirms order for 20 A380s".

Last two days I have taken quite a beating about spelling on this site  I feel like I'm in school again lol! Joking aside, I also read about the Amedeo history and who it was named after. Do they count as 2014 orders though? I remember Mr. Leahy saying @ the Paris show that Airbus doesn't count MoU on its' spreasheets so if this reasoning stands, 2013 closed with the 50 EK order and 2014 opened up with the Amedeo order? I am correct on this?

Do we have a type for the MAX order of Nok Air? Is this the MAX 8?

I think they do. Last year they signed a MoU, but that is no firm order yet. As of today, the 20 A380's signed for by Amedeo are firm on order.

That link is to an OP-ED by Richard Aboulafia on how Airbus is doomed.

Google News doesn't have anything on a new DY order, just the reference to the two leased 787-9s.

Per the article, they are new leases placed with ILFC.

Quote:
Norwegian continues to expand its international operations by entering into an agreement with International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) to lease four Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. The new Dreamliners are expected to enter service in 2017 and 2018.

ILFC has 41 787-9s on order, so these are likely going to be delivered to DY from "dealer stock".

Is that now 14 A330's this year? So for the 200 target we need another 186.

I have just read Richard Aboulafia's piece. It is very one sided and slanted and I am sure even the most optimistic analysts within Boeing see it this way.

He sees the decline of A350-800 orders as doom for Airbus when I think most see a campaign process by Airbus to move orders to the -900. Yes it then leave a hole potentially where the -800 was but so far this year we are seeing good orders for the A330.

The A380 is his next target. In reality it has more orders in the last 6 months than for the previous two years. Yes a large proportion are for the one customer and that is a difficuolt place to be. As the global economy hopefully recovers there may be more need for plane as like many others I think the -900 will be much better looking.

An order for the 332! That's interesting news today   And here we were seeing how unwanted and obsolete the 200 variant was.

Although I have to admit it's not cutting edge tech, we must never forget that not all operators can afford 150 777Xs 
Some will have to live with just 4 A332s

I am sure they are replacements for their four A340-200s. As such, the decision may have been driven by matching capacity, the need for more range than the A330-300, or both.

Totally agree Stitch. My comment was about the D.O.A. status of the 332 frame.

As the A330-300 comes closer to the performance of the early A330-200, customers who were buying the smaller plane because it alone had the range they needed can now take advantage of the larger capacity and better economics of the A330-300.

With the latest 242,000 kilogram TOW, I expect the A330-200 is now good for around 4500nm with a 50,000 kilogram payload. While still 1500nm short of what an A340-200 can fly that payload, I would not be surprised if it is within the range envelope of most A340-200 operators - especially as no A340-200 operator ordered the A350-800LR, which would have been a natural replacement (perhaps they will instead go with second-hand A340-500s if they need more capacity at similar ULH ranges).

These 330s I posit are not new orders as such but a revealing of the Dec order for 4 units of the -200 version. At the time, I had linked a news report speculating on who the customer was, and now it's clear (to me) they're for Aerolineas Agentinas

I don't expect the A350 backlog to shrink much, most operators will switch to the larger -900 instead. The A330-200 has less seats while the A330-300 has less range than the A350-800, I believe the A330neo will attract a different market.

There was only 1 Boeing order announcement (an 737 commitment from Nok Air) during the air show:

If I recall correctly too, there was a pre-Singapore announcement by Boeing, reported on FG I think, of a substantial Indian sub-continent order (for 737 series) being finalised and an announcement to be made during that show.
However, I can't find any follow-on.
Can anyone "in the know" provide clarity on this one?

I believe you mean the Bloomberg article for SpiceJet?

I believe we'll find that this IS, in fact, a firm order. But booked last year as Unidentified.

Did I say or imply anywhere that it was an order or commitment? p201055r was asking about a "pre-Singapore announcement". I just pointed to the announcement. Is there an issue with that?

Reuters reports China Eastern Airlines to order 70 A320neo.

BEIJING, Feb 28 (Reuters) - China Eastern Airlines Corp Ltd 600115.SS 0670.HK said on Friday it will order 70 A320neo planes from Airbus AIR.PA for about $6.37 billion.
The planes will be delivered to China Eastern from 2018 to 2020, the firm said in a stock exchange filing.

Airbus have earlier stated that they are aiming for 60% of the NB market, counting only A320 and 737 sales.
With Boeing planning for 45(?) per month, Airbus needs to increase prodution to much more than the 46/month they recently announced.

This order is by the way the first in China for the A320neo. More to come later this year.

I meant something else. The A320neo was sold out until 2020/2021; due to the latest production increase announcement China Eastern Airlines can now take delivery of all 70 aircraft before the end of the decade.

Not entirely:

> Qingdao Airlines placed a MoU for 18 jets last year

It might be the revelation of one of the undisclosed orders Boeing booked last year. They still have lots of undisclosed orders in the order book.

Hmm, this was already known for a couple of weeks already. And don't worry, there will be more A350s for KL. When it will be time to decide on 772 replacements, I'm sure current options on the A350 will be exercised. 7 is too small a subfleet for KL.

I think Jet Airways will order 50 MAX next week. SpiceJet is still a wildcard, they are incurring huge losses, have large dues to airports and recently auditors declared company's net worth is negative. As much as I would like to see Boeing orders, SpiceJet need to get its house in order. If at all it happens rumor is for 38 MAX (30 new, 8 conversions)

Though not a new order, that is my expectation as well. Will make a nice combination to see the B787 and the A350 operating side by side from AMS.
