Just as a reminder, these threads are for orders, commitments, and LOIs for Airbus at the airshow. Speculation and rumor discussion belongs in other threads.

Is this the strange order that came up as UFO the same time as the 10 UFO A330neos?

UFO orders aren't really strange anymore. But it's indeed the UFO order placed last month as this was the only UFO order for the A350 so far this year. The A330neo was a different order, placed on a different day in the same month.

Would be nice if the airline/lessor which placed the UFO A330neo order would be revealed in one of the next press conferences today :spin:
And more UFO orders revealed later this week.... :sigh:

Airbus also issued a press release for the Vistara order that already came out last week, making it an air show deal.


"India’s VISTARA to add 50 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft to fleet"

https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-r ... -flee.html

Confirming the deal as a letter of Intent (LoI) for 13 A320neo aircraft + 37 A320neo Family via leasing companies. Note that the direct order will just be A320, any A321s will come through the leasing companies.

Both Airbus and Boeing are mainly rehashing previously announced commitments and disclosing UFO orders so far, hopefully this will improve the next few days...

Boeing used to add some UFO orders to the totals without any announcement, but last year they also had an announcement like this. I don't mind them booking UFO orders, but announcing them, especially before they are firm, at a show is something they should not be doing.

Airbus or the fanboys? I don't recall statements from Airbus Officials critizising UFO orders but I might missed them.

The OP explicitly says discussion related to Airbus orders in this thread. It is not "announcement only" and discuss in "general discussion" - where everything will get lost.

Not trying to be argumentative, but people have different views of how a thread should operate. We can't expect mods to police threads so particularly - nor, IMO, should we restrict threads so much. Let people have discussions.
