Paris Air Show Facts And Figures

Sat Jun 16, 2007 8:40 pm

from http://news.airwise.com/story/view/1181890676.html

"** Brokerage analysts expect deals for at least 300 planes worth USD$30 billion at list prices to be announced at the event.

** Analysts say Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qantas subsidiary Jetstar, India's Kingfisher and US Airways may announce plane deals."

from http://news.airwise.com/story/view/1181890514.html

"Boeing heads into the show with 175 planes already booked for unidentified customers, many of whom should step forth at Paris."

There will be more than 300 planes sold during the show....- including the conversions of older commitments.
It' ll be rather close to 350 if Qatar confirms their previous MOU's.

Just a side note...

I don't know who create the Paris Air Show website, but they need to think again.. everytime you click on something.. a new website opens.. that's annoying.. also, the registration for tickets are all in French... what if we can't read french? And when I looked at the list of Aircraft and exhibitors, I went to B and did not see Boeing.. hmmmmm...

But, I digress...

This years Le Bourget will most likely surprise many of us. I have little doubt that Boeing will out do Airbus in terms of orders, although many are currently undisclosed. It will be finally good to see who booked what.  Smile

What I'm trying to figure out is what Singapore Airline would be in the market for. I would suspect that they may look to take some additional 777's or even possibly even more 787's and the long awaited firming up of their A350XWB order. I would also love to see additional A388's ordered but I suspect that it will be unlikely.

Looking at the Boeing website, I noticed there was an unidentified 767 delivery... uhmm.. how did that happen? where are the spotters who are supposed to catch this?

Lawd have mercy..someone is falling by the wayside.. anyone know who that there 767 was for?

I seriously doubt that Boeing will "out do" Airbus at this venue. These airshows are key to Airbus' marketing strategies--it gives them a chance to showcase their products and creates great photo ops with their happy customers. They will be in for a horrible round of press if this occurs. IMO, they will do whatever they have to do to prevent this from happening.

SQ need to order another 10 to 20 aircraft for delivery before the A350 can be delivered. There is an outside chance that SQ would exercise some or all of their 13 777-300ER options to fill this need, but it seems much more likely that SQ will exercise some or all of their 20 787 options. SQ may also order A350s for later delivery.

More WhaleJets would be a big surprise.

As I already stated under another topic, to help prevent this possibly existing and new MoU will be titled "orders"
But I wonder what Airbus could do if Boeing announce a barrage of orders ???

Not saying Boeing couldn't do it, but I'd be slightly astonished. Airbus saves up orders for these airshows. In fact, I think this is a sensible practice since the world's media is present and they get scads of free publicity. And...they always have a surprise or two on the last day. Witness the Singapore A380/A350XWB order at Farnborough last year. Considering Gallois' comments here it sounds like he's confident they'll at least hold their ground.

They are French...they don't care. It is odd since the aviation world functions in English, however.

Boeing intends to be present, the blog www.boeing.com/randy Randy Tinseth says he'll be briefing reporters from Paris prior to the show. Why Boeing isn't on the vendors/let me sell you a plane list, I don't know. But with a show this size, you know they have to be there.

OK-let's start with a smaller but nice order from Sibir for 20 A320's plus options for another ten....
This one was on none of the prospective threads so far..

You are right. To book a new and not previously announced order during the show is a good public relation coup.
But what is Airbus doing during the last times ??

Publicly calling MOU orders as EI, SU, QR, Kingfisher. If some come in during the Show, no surprise, if not, a big negative effect !!

And I must repeat a statement I already made before: What means a A350 "firm" order at this moment, when many of the main parameters are still not defined ?? Even if the order is called firm, it is obviously subject to the approval of the customer of these parameters, and if they are not to his satisfaction, he can always cancel the order.

And honestly, do you qualify the response of Gallois you cite as very enthusiastic ?? Why he is so nervous ??

It is my understanding these were JA632J and JA633J 767-346ERs on June 14 2007

Witness the 350 "LOI" last year.  Wink Singapore has yet to order the 350. The big announcement was very anti climactic and knee-jerked. I guess JL something to make himself feel better.

The last time I read the order thread there were almost 200 unnanounced Airbus orders so I expect them come out with fists flying. A nice ORDER from a reputable airline for the 350 would do wonders for Airbus's floundering program.

Time will tell.

Since this thread contains absolutely no facts about anything and won't for at least two days, I'd like to see it merged with one of the the other threads speculating about possible orders that may or may not happen.

The news from Malaysia are:

Confirmed

  • AirAsia X will be announcing the engine manufacturer who will power their 15 A330-300s, a contract worth USD 1.5 billion at the Paris Air Show. The battle is between Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney.

So far unlikely but who knows...

  • AirAsia X will purchase additional 10 A330-300s.
  • MH will confirm its 6 A380-800s.
  • MH will announce a purchase of 55 widebodies and 55 narrowbodies following their RFPs several months ago.

I remember two years ago when Kingfisher ordered the A380, - not many in here had seen that coming.

For me the real interesting part of it will be this years "big surprise" - I just hope it will come

I would like to see a thread that just showed the facts:::


For example::

MH confirms 6 A380's

Air Asia X 10 A330-300's

Just the facts and orders and no chit chat !!!! Im sure we will see threads for each order where the usual chatting can me done but if you want a up to date quick list of whats been ordered etc..... it would be nice to have access to quick and confirmed figures.

Oh yes I agree but when the orders do flow in then Im just saying Id like to see an un cluttered thread so I dont have to read hundreds of posts . Maybe someone on here will volunteer for such a thread which would be very useful.
