Sat Feb 05, 2005 1:44 am

Looks like Airbus did following in Jan, no breakdown on carriers or individual types yet:

Orders: 320 family 18
330/340 17

Deliveries: 300 1
320 family 19
330/340 4

No new orders confirmed by Airbus, so still showing 139.

AirbusDriver,

Sorry may be a little misleading. It is the order tallly total for 380, still shows 139. Airbus don't seem to do so many unidentified orders these days, so the UPS, CZ and one other? orders have not been added, at least I don't think so.

Hope this clears this up.

Airbus only adds orders to the tally once the final contracts are signed. So far the UPS and CZ orders are 'just' commitments. The final paperwork is still being done. For example, the Etihad and thai orders were only added to the books in December, even though they had been announced months before that.

The Jan orders are -

Kingfisher - 10 x A320
Sichuan - 2 x A319, 6 x A320
Northwest - 2 x A332, 6 x A333
GECAS - 2 x A332
Virgin - 10 x A346

Airbus still has quite a few announced orders that still haven't hit the book yet.

Thanks Scbriml, a question if I may.

With the 10 A346 for VS does that take their total direct purchase to 13 as they originally announced, IIRC they booked 3 last year? and, do you know who the 332 for GECAS are for?

Also to be added to the books are 4 x A319 for SALE to be placed with Spirit.

With all the orders for both A and B so far this year, it really shows that the aivation industry is recovering from 9/11, SARS etc.

I hope the recovery continues....it is sad to see all these foreign airlines ordering new planes but american airlines staying behind......and btw, it is sad because I wish ALL airlines were doing well and introducing new planes to their fleets..

The GECAs A330s are, I believe, part of the NW order, for 10 more. They will (further) replace the DC10 on Atlantic services, starting in 2007.

777ER, I too am cheering seeing ANY aircraft orders. It does look like we're finally exiting the post 9/11 travel recession.

CORULEZ05, alas, I'm afraid the USA airlines are going to have yet another tough year. With estimates of 8% growth in revenue passenger miles but a decrease in revenue for 2004... ugh... 2005 will be a tough year. With most USA airlines having negative enterprise values, I'm not sure when the recovery will be.

Congratulations to Airbus for a good month. and Boeing... it looks like there is light ahead.  Big thumbs up Now to see Embraer win a few more orders and Bombardier launch the C series.
