More To Be Announced For Airbus?

More orders to be announced for Airbus?

http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayA..._July606.xml§ion=business&col=

"European planemaker Airbus, which has been trounced by US rival Boeing in aircraft orders this year, bounced back by winning 114 firm aircraft orders worth $9.65 billion and options for another 58 by the end of fourth day of the airshow"

"Including the options and some other unannounced deals, the total value of orders bagged by Airbus reached $18 billion"

So what are the 58 options, if we can identify these and their value, we'll have the balance left for the remaining orders.

Air Asia 30 A320 @ 65million each, 1,95 billion
Afriqiyah 5 A319/A320 3 A332 @ 65 million, and at 165 million, 825 million
Gruppo Marsans 10 A332 @ 1,65 billion

That's 48 in total for 4,425 billion. Can anyone identify these remaining 10 options if, according to the article, we need 58 in total? Current options and orders, counted for have a value of about 14 billion.

I think SQ took out 9 options on the A380 in their order today.

I guess the central word is "some unannounced" - that could mean that there is still more to come. The pre-Farnborough announced likely A330-200F launch comes to my mind...
