I did ok.
Back in December 2005 I posted a thread about what I predict the airline industry will see in 2006 and here it is:
"Any predictions for this year?
Here are my guesses.
SQ - lots of 787s and some 772LRs. Dump A345.
EK - 787 in vast numbers.
QF - lots of 777-300ERs, and more 737NGs.
NZ - some 773ERs.
Mexicana - 772ERs and LRs.
LAN - more A319/20.
AV - some 73NGs and 787s.
Garuda - firm up those 787s.
BA - a load of 773ERs, and a load more A319/20s.
EZY - 40+ more A319s. Maybe some A320s.
Philippines - 773ERs.
Saudi - a ton of 787s and probably 773ERs too.
Yemenia - A350.
Aeroflot - A350 or 787? - i think 787 despite reports to the contrary.
TK - some 772ERs and possibly some 787s as well.
KLM - some 773ERs, and a load more 73NGs.
SNB/VEX - 73NGs. No widebody order yet.
Royal Brunei - 772ERs.
El-Al - some more 777s, and more 73NGs.
RAM - more 73NGs, firm their 787 if they havent already.
Tunisair - 787s.
Vietnam - more 787s, more 777s (probably not new leased).
Austrian - more 777s, and some A319s.
Airbus gets their asses handed to them basically."
Indeed Airbus did get their asses handed to them this year. Of course its just a subjective bit of fun, but I made some key mistakes, and didnt see the LH 748I order coming at all - that has surprised me more than anything this year. That and the A330s for SQ.
Lets have some predictions for 2007.
