EK May Announce 100 Aircraft Order At Dubai

Wed Nov 07, 2007 2:33 pm

Quote:
DUBAI (Zawya Dow Jones) -- Emirates Airline, the biggest customer for the A380, may announce its long-awaited order for 100 long-haul planes at the Dubai Airshow that starts Sunday, the airline's president said Wednesday.
"We're still in discussions with the manufacturers about the order. We may be ready to announce it at the airshow, but we may not," Tim Clark told Zawya Dow Jones by telephone. "We're looking at about 100 aircraft, maybe more."

Does this mean we have to wait another two years for the decision to be made?

...and finally, to the dog under the table...you may lick whatever crumbs are left on the plate after airbus has their fill...we announce a whole whopping 10 orders for your 747. Now, let's see if we can give Airbus some dessert...  beady

From the way the article is worded it sounds like they want to place a firm order for 100 jets for just one plane type, though that might have gotten lost in translation and it is actually for 100 firm orders for different planes, which leads me to

The A350s and A330s in those numbers are a given. For the other 20, I'd say their 10 748F options are firmed, and they'll get 10 more 77Ws.

I'm glad to finally read the announcement for which we have been waiting so long: maybe they will be ready, maybe not, maybe for 100, maybe more, maybe less...

Walsh was even better before the BA order he said, maybe the aircraft they will order have two decks, or one and a half maybe they have two engines or four engines.... Wink

EK are such teases! wink 

Can I play now? How about
- 50 x A350
- 30 x A330 (leased)

and

- 20 x 748i (despite the bluster and Boeing's design freeze, they may still order it)

or

- nn x A380 (firming the additional order from Paris and topping it up since Boeing didn't give them the 748 they wanted)
