Paris: One/Two More Airbus Announcements Tomorrow

Thu Jun 16, 2005 10:19 pm

Airbus is promising one but hoping for two announcements tomorrow:

- One from a European customer which will “probably be announced tomorrow”
- One for 40 single aisle aircraft which will be signed tomorrow possibly without being named (that will be done before the end of the month)

Could be an IB order for 350s. Or, who knows, another 380 order?

Wow, that would push Airbus over 300 orders and commitments for Paris alone. Not bad for a manufacturer that was "desperate" and "in demise" a couple of weeks ago.

It would be nice to hear A340 series orders.

only 13 have been ordered so far this year

10 A340-600's by Virgin Atlantic
3 A340-300 by Air Mauritius

Didn't KLM order those 4 about 2weeks ago?

that's a good guess, I totally forgot about the MH order.

I doubt though.

Hasn´t LH ordered some more A340-600 or was that last year? Or maybe just options into firm orders?

I can't think of anyone else for the European widebody order; possibly TAP. I know Aer Lingus isn't ready to order.

LOT or Iberia seems most likely to me.

It could be SAS, how are in desperate need of more long hault a/c.
Maybe 2 more A333 or A332.

Czech Airlines badly need longhaul replacement, but it is just a dream. Nothing is rumoured here, but who expected 100 A320 ordered by IndiGo. So let s see
just fly - it is nice

And what about SN Brussels Airlines?! They need to replace their Avros RJs -85 & 100 / BAE 146... Maybe they could go on some A318 / A319!

IIRC LH ordered 7 A346. Not sure whether they were option conversions but they were new orders. Perhaps Scorpio could clarify for us.

The last A340-600 order is from 23rd January, 10 for Virgin. Don't know about the LH order,but it wasn't this year... Maybe a lease?

I guess these 18x (+12) A319 are the 40 single aisle aircraft mentioned above, I doubt that the VIP A340-600 is the order from a European customer because I think it is hard to believe that a European buys a A340-600 as a private jet that sounds more like a crazy sheikh. BTW in the new Flug Revue (German Aviation magazine) is a design proposal for the upper deck of a possible A380 private jet interior.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

No, yesterday they said: One European order AND an order for 40+ single aisle planes... The 18+12 A319 is the European order, I assume the 40+ order is from an Asian carrier that has not finalized the deal yet.

It would be cool if this is the long awaited MH order.

Speaking of pending Airbus orders, does anybody know if MX's order of 2 A332's has been made official? Or is it perhaps part of an order made by a leasing company?
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

Thanks KL911 I should have been clearer as I was referring solely to LH. The order was booked late last year for 7 firm, not sure how LH is financing them though they are new frames. I'm just going from memory sorry.
