Qantas Buys 25 Airbusses

Thu Nov 30, 2000 1:37 am

Qantas finally made their decision to aquire 12 A3XX ( the engine selection will be next year) and 13 A330-200/-300. Looks like Boeing is loosing a loyal customer but I'm sure they will do anything to get Qantas to buy their aircarfts like they did in the SAS case.

But Qantas also is the launch customer for the 747-400X with 6 orders.

They bought 6 747-400X too! It is wrong, they bought not 25 Airbusse! They bought 12 A3XX and got the rest for free   Thats a hard fact!

Actually, they probably also got 6 of the 3XXs for free....talk about doing anything to get orders.....

Grow up Adria. Your type of posting is a bit old.

I bet that the engine selection will be for Rolls Royce Trents for both aircraft.

No doubt about it they will be Rolls Royce!!! Qantas has a large fleet of RR powered 747's and now with some Ex BA 767's with RRs Qantas would be foolish not to order their birds with anything but!
