AviationAnalyst: "Royal Jordanian Assess A220, E2 & will announce this month"

Sun Jun 09, 2019 5:10 pm

Interesting. Aviation Analyst, Alex Macheras (just watched his show on the news here, now he just broke this exclusive) says Royal Jordanian Airlines has assessed SIXTEEN aircraft types ahead of its new narrowbody order, read about how the CEO specifically mentioned the A220 and E2 to Macheras. This could be big news for either of the aircraft programs...

Hardly going to be a big order whatever. They already operate Embraers

Are there even 16 different commercial aircraft being produced?
When wasn't America great?

Comfortably. Airlines will consider an A220-100 a different type to an A220-300 etc...

Just read between the lines...
They have been checked 16 from 4 companies, which are now reduced to two companies.

So they started with Embraer, Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier and ended up now with Airbus (including A220) and Boeing (including Boeing Brasil).
And as now only 2 are left, the CRJ-family is not part of the 16, because it is still Bombardier.

So my few cents:
MAX 7, 8, 9 and 10
A220 100 and 300
A320 Family (319, 320 and 321 Neo and as also mentioned: 321 LR)
Embraer E 175 190 and 195 and E2 175 190 and 195.

Edit:
Pichler confirmed that an announcement on Royal Jordanian’s narrowbody order will be made by the end of Q2, 2019.


So it will be announced on the Paris Air Show.

So a small order at Paris that could be any MAX, NEO, A220, or E2. Huh.

I have little doubt which direction RJ will go.
Do you? Cough Boeing.
Aesthetically the A 340 got it right!

Macquarie Bank has an order book for BCS3 aircraft. That could make good sense, although some of RJ's fleet assignments on short haul make no sense, as for example, on AMM-IST or AMM-TLV, RJ will send anything out on it. The aircraft that RJ would want to replace are their four Embraer E-Jets, which are owned by RJ (and aside from two B788s, the only planes they own).

I'd imagine the E2 has the edge here unless they want an RJ (see what I did there? hahaha) that has the legs to do AMM-MAN/ORY/CPH/DUS/LIS etc, ie: routes too thin for their mainline Airbus narrowbodies but too far for their E-jets. Whether they want to do that, is another thing.

It's not that it makes no sense, it's simply something you do not comprehend.

RJ is now an primary Airbus airline with few (4) E-Jets and it seems, they have recently reduced the number of E-Jets from 5 to 4 (former 3x E-175, now 2 and 2 E-195). And they have some Dreamliners, but most of the jets are members of the A320 family (A319, A320 and A321).

They will announce the order on Paris Air Show in few days (they stated at end of Q2, so at Paris Air Show) and they do it on a Air Show, because it is always good advertisement, to do so.
No one is so stupid, to annonce an order for a MAX now, because this is the worst possible advertisement at the moment, till the MAX issue is solved. OK, there are some crazy guys...like O'Leary...
So we will see no MAX orders (and RJ has never had any 737 in their history).
As RJ has already a farm of different types of jets (23 jets and 7 types and subtypes), I expect some orders for A320 Family (most likely A321 LR and/or XLR) and possibly some A220; less lkkely some E2 Jets (in this case E195 E2). But this are my few Cents, I only bet and do not know it.

RJ has 2 E75s + 2 E95s + 3 A319s + 2 A321s + 6 A320s to be replaced, so that means 15 aircraft.

From a commercial perspective, I would therefore expect an order for 10 A220-300s + 5 A321NEOs to be placed along with 5 options (2 for A223s + 3 A321NEOs) thus totaling 20 aircraft.

This would be the most sensible thing to do, even though in my imaginary world I would love to see more aircrafts for Royal Jordanian, but well they don't have extra money like EY.

So well for starters a mixture of CS 300 and A321neo would be good.
