Are these in addition to the two LEVEL ordered recently - or the same order re publicized?


Official press release for the two booked last month !!

This is what the title of the press release tells us

"LEVEL adds two A330-200s to its fleet"

To be delivered in 2019

Airbus Press Release on Peach Aviation A321LR's

https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-r ... -asia.html


Not surprising, back when Peach stated that they're looking for "Longer range single-aisle plane", it was already speculated that it's 99% A321LRs. Surprised that they're only getting 2, though. Something like KIX-BKK would already used up a plane for the whole day.

I read it as a "commitment" for 60 A220 and not 30... based on a MoU.

One bit of jargon I don't know is 'UFO'
In context here, I've guessed it to mean;
Unannounced firm order.

For me, this thread should surely only refer
to NEW orders. Otherwise it seem we are
talking 'fake news'.
Plane sales people are no doubt just like
Real estate or car dealers, very good at
showing things in a good light, but...

Only orders that did not exist before this show
are a meaningful Airbus order thread. Same
applies to the other big company as well.

Airbus is announcing these as firm orders. Just not identifying the purchaser. This isn't "fake news". Geez.

A Memorandum of Understanding from an undisclosed customer???? What kind of order is this, should this really be announced at an airshow? I'm disappointed, Airbus used to criticize Boeing heavily for this kind of announcement at an airshow (17x 747-8i for two Undisclosed Customers at PAS years ago) and rightly so.

Airbus or the fanboys? I don't recall statements from Airbus Officials critizising UFO orders but I might missed them.

It was John Leahy, not in an official Airbus statement, but saying to journalists how unimpressed he was with Boeing announcing UFO commitments for the 747-8 at the PAS 2011 airshow. Never mind, let's focus on some real orders now :smile:


Not sure whether he repeated it in 2011, but here is a report that quotes what he said in 2008.

https://www.heraldnet.com/business/airb ... -air-show/

But the Air China deal, along with two others from Etihad Airways and Malaysia Airways, were already on Boeing’s books — attributed to unidentified buyers. Removing those from the tally, the Chicago-based plane-maker’s deals at the world’s biggest air show drop to just $5.6 billion.

Airbus on Thursday held a self-congratulatory press conference, with the Toulouse, France-based company’s chief salesman John Leahy saying the figures defied the “doom and gloom” that many industry watchers had expected to pervade this year’s air show given soaring oil prices and the global credit crisis.

“We think it ended up pretty well,” Leahy said, adding that Airbus viewed the practice of placing orders on the books before confirming buyers as “quite silly.”


So Airbus without Leahy decides to do what Leahy said Airbus didn't like.

The UFO orders are the previously unidentified firm orders that are identified at the show. They are posted in this thread because Airbus (or Boeing for their orders) are announcing them here at the airshow. They are labeled UFO to make it clear that these are orders that were already on the orderbook.

Not posting them here would create even more confusion. People will only be asking why they aren't posted here, if they even got the chance because other people who are not aware of the status of the order will post it anyway. We also have to be aware that some of the orders were already announced in the press, without any formal confirmation by Airbus or Boeing. Then it looks like it's just rehashing old news to us, but for them it's a new announcement.

This just shows that's important to list the actual status of the order, and possibly also if available a bit of history of the order when the news is posted.

Well, with them we can only be certain that there will be no order until the show has ended. And even then there could be a late announcement. Until then we should just focus on the actual announcements.

I'm sure they will announce on the final press/industry day of the show. If I remember correctly, Tony Fernandes did that already last few times...

That is not good news for Airbus and the A330NEO. The AirAsia order is holding the type hostage (unless someone comes in willing to buy far more than Delta).

It that isn't broadcasting "make me a better offer", I don't know what is.

That's great news and further validation of the A220 as an ideal aircraft for high profile, high demand areas of core operation like the US eastern seaboard and the major continental destinations where Jet Blue, and the future Moxy, have their core market. This is true, too, for Delta and its ATL core market. I am sure there is a widespread feeling of vindication in Bombardier HQ as the orders roll in for their baby.

Everyone does it, but this year Airbus does seem heavier on announcing UFOs at the air show than they have been in years past. But there is a new head of sales.

An unidentified order does not necessarily mean a Chinese airline, but as most airlines are public listed companies, it is very difficult for these businesses to satisfy their reporting requirements to their stockholders. It does not mean that it can't be done, but if the order is very large, then it will have to be reported.

volume is the differentiator.

Over many years UFO orders were fringe.

Then Boeing started to really boost that segment of UFO announcement.
Afaics with an eye towards having a second chance to announce these again
when they grew a customer name. With the UFO to Named Order path hidden
in the fine print.
You have to also see Boeing as presented by the press in that context.

"? It’s a tactic used by everyone" is a little white lie imho.

Publishing firm orders for undisclosed customers is nothing wrong. Press releases at an airshow for these, I don't know about that.
Announcing a MoU or LoI from an undisclosed customer is a lot of hot air and has no place at an airshow IMO, but:

it roughly fits with the type, number on order and timing.

That one will be interesting to see how it will be booked - the wording points towards a mix of -800/900s, not only -900s.


On that link there is a line "2018 list price A330neo: US$259.9m". If we compare that price to Airbus Commercial Aircraft-list prices 2018 at https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-releases/en/2018/01/airbus-2018-price-list-press-release.html we will find that the price is for A330-800.

This got me thinking... could these 6 perhaps be those 6 Hawaiian Airlines cancelled?

Just an MoU at this stage so won’t go in the orderbook yet.

Over many years UFO orders were fringe.

Then Boeing started to really boost that segment of UFO announcement.
Afaics with an eye towards having a second chance to announce these again
when they grew a customer name. With the UFO to Named Order path hidden
in the fine print.
You have to also see Boeing as presented by the press in that context.

"? It’s a tactic used by everyone" is a little white lie imho.

Pure sophistry.

Based on the daily summaries plus today´s order (MoU) for 6 A330neo I´m at 364 "order announcements" in one way or the other. Looks like there is still something big to be expected.
Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A343/346, A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8/9,B742/4,B762/763,B772/77W,CR2/7/9/K,ER3/4,E70/75/90/95, F50/70/100,M11,L15,SF3,S20, AR8/1, 142/143,...
