I guess they will order LEAP-1A as Garuda ordered them as well for their order for 10 A320neo, which will also go to Citilink. By that time they also signed for 25 options...

Good news for the NEO-program.   Even though we are getting used to mega-orders these days, 25 airplanes is still is respectable number. Congrats to all involved in this deal.

I get 1699 orders. Did I miss anything lately?

Anyway .. The NEO program must surely exceed Airbus' expectation, no?
1700ish order in 2 years.
By the way .. the Neo was launched January 12, 2010.
I wonders if there was a birthday party last Saturday.

Nice order, but slightly odd that they're ordering planes directly and via Garuda.

Wasn't the official launch of the neo on 1st December 2010?
