NEW order does this mean also mean new customer?

If not we might see the likes of LH, EK, and KE exercise their options.

KE has been rumored to be very interested in excercising its options for the F version.

If they are going to announce up to 20 new orders before the end of the year like he said they would a few weeks ago, a major airshow in the middle of a fight to regain customer and market confidence is the time to do so. Especially after a 13 month dry spell without any orders.

I would be surprised if they do NOT announce a new A380 order before the final close-out of Farnborough.

This would be a good time to drive a hard bargain for an A380 from Airbus, I am sure someone might take this opportunity.

My guess for 388 orders will be on Saturday:

BA
KE (Freighter)
SAA (??)

Just wild guesses here..
