2012 Major Sales Campaigns For A, B And Others?

Fri Feb 03, 2012 8:54 pm

Didn't Boeing state it had close to 1000 orders for the MAX in the works? And I thought Airbus said we should be expecting another raft of A380 orders. Or was that Boeing and the 747-8? What about the C-Series (or do I have that wrong) and that Russian jet?

It seems rather quiet in the major order department of late which leaves us all twiddling our thumbs. So I ask all my esteemed experts in the field (that's you folks), what are the major sales campaigns/announcements expected this year? Who has the inside track? What are the potential hiccups? What surprises might we see and from whom? Will Boeing rack up another 200+ orders for the 777? How about Airbus and the juggernaut that is the 330?

I expect a number of announcements here and there for most manufacturers. But for sure, things will heat up in July at the Farnborough Air Show... Get your tally counter ready!


I have cut 4 times, and it's still short.

Nope, you're right. The last couple of months have been very quiet.
