The A380 will be there for certain. We won't see the 787 until next year at Paris, though maybe Boeing will have some sort of a mockup—perhaps just Section 41 or a cabin mockup.

The BA 744 visits Fairford, not Farnborough.

Farnborough got the SA B744 display (apart from the final day when Cathay sent 'Spirit of Hong Kong').

According to the website, the list will be released in June.

No doubt Airbus will also send the a346 and perhaps the a318 just like the last couple of shows. The a380 would be a sure bet.
Probably the 772LR will be there, but Boeing hasn't been into flying displays lately unfortunately....

As they have sent the A318 airliner to so many shows before already, it's about time they send the corporate version - the Elite.

Perhaps the A320 with winglets may appear?

I'd quite like to see an A330 display!

IMHO chances are good. Airbus likes to show off it's new products, even if only an upgrade from an existing product, like coming with the PW6000 A318 to Paris.
