Paris Airshow Shopping List

Sun May 22, 2005 9:15 am

In a little over three weeks time the Paris Air show will begin. There are going to be some major announcements, just as importantly there may be some major announcements missing that will be just as important.

Will there be some orders placed for the A380 from some new carriers like there was at Farnborough last year? If so who might it be, was Etihads order a surprise? There could be an unexpected order, who expected Qatar Airways to order A380s?

Will there be a major announcement on the A350, a major order perhaps, or just as importantly the lack of an order could be just as telling for the future of this aircraft!

Will the 747ADV be launched? If so, will there be a launch order to go with it?

Now is the time to make some educated guesses as to what the major announcements will be....... just for fun  Wink

Airbus are saying they could be announcing over 100 orders for the A350. Could EK be involved with that announcement. There is also rumored to be a few Boeing orders also, even a Boeing B787 order from Qatar is also rumored

The 747Adv won't be launched without at least one solid launch customer, so if anything is announced, expect both.

Quoting 777ER (Reply 1):

They are all going to US to replace E-170s and A-320s. LOL

Quoting 777ER (Reply 1):

That will offset the 100 A-350 order to US, LOL

I'll take 25 B-747ADV, 25 B-788, and 25 B-777LRF. Go ahead and throw in 25 BBJ2 also.

LOL

If you cant say anything constructive then leave the keyboard alone. I would love to see someone order and therefore launch the 747adv

The Fokker (REKKOF) F70NG willbe announced. KL/AF launch customers, with also a lufthansa order. I'm sure something big like this will be announced.

both airbus and boeing will obviously announce major major orders, probably with some surprises. the arabian airlines will probably bring out their wallets big time! i doubt either boeing or airbus will 'beat' the other in terms of order numbers, but if one or the other does, especially with the a350 and b787 then that'll no doubt have these boards buzzing for weeks!!
