Air Arabia To Order 50 NB Aircraft

Mon Nov 05, 2007 5:19 pm

Air Arabia announced an order of 50 aircraft, either B737 or A320, to be revealed at the Dubai Airshow next week. Any guess what their choice will be?

If it's going to be reported at the air show..I'd say it's going to Airbus. Remember, Airbus gets off on announcing large orders at these air shows.

Of course, it will be A320s; Airbus order will reach 1500 a/c at least this year IMO

Appears that at least one lessor will be happy as well:

Quoting LY777 (Reply 4):

That is quite possible.
