Air Asia To Order A320 NEO's?

Fri Nov 30, 2012 5:55 pm

G'day

Per this Air Asia today ordered / selected the A 320 NEO

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...h-density-variant-included-379612/

AirAsia earlier today selected the Airbus A320neo instead of a 160-seat version of the normally 130- to 145-seat CS300, the larger sister to the 110- to 130-seat CS100.

I thought they previously placed orders for the NEO, so is that a new order or a potential top-up?   


Cheers

They ordered a few already  http://www.airbus.com/presscentre/pr...rasia-orders-200-a320neo-aircraft/

so that must be a top up then. So how many would that be this time?  Wow!

The old rumor about 100 planes was at least not only for A320Neos as Air Asia needs more planes for growth sooner than the A320Neo is available. Can we soon expect an order of 100 for a mix of Neo and Ceo?
