During the last few weeks we have been discussing the possible widebody orders at Farnborough, while never truly mentioning the narrowbody competitors. I assume that 717s and A318s will be ordered at FI but the important question is who will they be ordered by? Also, what lays ahead for the 737NG and A32X families? As we all well know, the 737NG line received an order for 94 73Gs with the possibility of a total order reaching up to 290 airframes. Does anything even closely resembling that lay just a few weeks ahead?
