If anything, the only further orders we can predict for this year is the firming up of the A350 options. Other than that, they have to focus on streamlining their product and improving their market share on existing routes.
This article says the 15 A321 Neos are intended to replace the old planes. Or maybe some to replace old A320s and some to add more to the fleet. I do not know if they intend to replace the A321 Ceo but it would be good if they do. And i think these 15 NEOs will have more seats than the first 6. I do not know if they will install IFEs though i think they will, considering they are aiming for the 5th star.
The 15 A321neo on order will have an ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex) configuration similar to 5J A321neo although PAL version will likely have either a set of over wing exit or doors 3 is deactivated. And yes it will have a denser configuration when compared to the first batch of 6 A21N which will be mainly used on regional flights in Asia. I'm not sure if it will have the same on-board product as the first batch. But I'm certain that there will be In-seat IFE in all classes and WiFi.
