Why Is Airbus Being So Silent?

Tue Apr 12, 2005 1:58 am

I'm reading about the recent orders that B is picking up such as Air India and KAL and NW and even though I'm happy for Boeing to get a good start on the life of a new product which I can't wait to fly, I wonder if Airbus is just being patient and waiting for the Paris air show to announce any kind of support(orders) for their A350 product. We all know A380 is a huge project and big accomplishment but I'm sure they are aware of the 787 orders coming in recently and how those orders could have been A350 orders. Anyone expecting a big orders announcement from Airbus(specifically for A350) at the Paris air show, or is the A350 is really having a slow start.

I'm betting on the Paris Air Show for Airbus to make "dramatic" announcements.

Watch what happens at Paris. They are planning on this being a big show for them, and I think that they will announce some A-350 order of some kind; although from whom I have no idea at this point. They may also announce an A-380 order of some kind as well.

Airbus has traditionally made order announcements at the airshow, it is their style; Boeing announces based on customer desires.

They traditionally wait for the shows but I doubt that they will announce significant A350 orders. It seems like all the likely candidates chose 787 lately. It'll be interesting to see.

Wow man they'll kill you on a.net for asking that  Wink
The show dates are 13-19 June
Get ready for "if you tried to do a search on this" type comments and various sarcasm filled criticism. It makes this forum even more fun. Oh by the way here is the link to the shows website wish I can make the trip there to see teh new birds!
