IT would be great, if you ad the A320 order from jetbleu. Airbus suffered seceral cancelation already, TWA, Sabena, AOM/Air Liberté. They need the good news. I wonder when Boeing will come out with some news. Anything to expect?

I think the Air France A380 order is anti-climactic therefore there hasn't been much response. We all know they're getting the jets so "announcing" and order is really rather "cheesy". The JetBlue order was very interesting to me. I know they're doing well but this order is larger than I thought it would be. Congratulations to them!

In addition to these orders, Airbus is supposed to release details of a new A318 customer.

LOL, it looks like the speculations of some of the forum users have hit the bull's eye!

So it's time for us to guess what routes they'll use the A380 on. I'd place my bet on JFK-CDG or perhaps even some domestic routes  Wow!.

The routes I've heard that will get the A380 are:
CDG-JFK
CDG-LAX
CDG-YUL
CDG-MIA
CDG-NRT

Maybe CDG-ATL feeding people into Delta's massive ATL hub?

There are many North American cities in this list. Too much, if you ask me, but of course, I don't know AF's plans.
