Paris Airshow Predictions?

Sat May 30, 2015 6:03 pm

So the Paris Airshow is rapidly approaching and I want to know what some of your predictions regarding orders or non-orders will be?

Airbus

How many total orders? Will any A380's be sold or not? A350 orders? A330 orders? A320NEO orders?Which airline will order which aircraft? etc..

Boeing

How many total orders? Will 777X sell or not? 787 orders or not? Will 747-8 get any orders? 737MAX orders? Which airline will order which aircraft?

Give me your thoughts.

VS converting their 380 order into 350's to replace the leisure 744 fleet would be my guess.

Being it's in Paris, I think Airbus is gonna make a spectacular out of it. They'll beat Boeing handily in the "sat on orders" race.

Around the time when WN introduced their new seats a couple months back there was another article in the ATA Smartbrief, I think pulled from the WSJ, that said WN would also introduce an enhanced IFE offering at the Paris Airshow.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A320NEO orders?

   - I think the A320NEO will steal the show again in terms of order numbers and I expect a huge chunk of these to be for the A321NEO, plus I wonder if we will see firming of IndiGo's order for 250 neo's?...

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A330 orders?

   - Definitely some CEO's to bridge the production gap to the NEO, and I expect quite a few NEO's as well.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A350 orders?

   - In my opinion Airbus have been saving up A350 orders for Paris, so I'd expect quite a few orders.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will any A380's be sold or not?

Now this and the 747-8 are going to be interesting ones to watch. If an A380NEO is announced then definitely, but if not then who knows. If we are going to see A380 orders this year I think we'll see them at either Paris or Dubai Airshow.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will 777X sell or not?

   - probably, this will be another interesting one to watch.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
787 orders or not?

   - again I think we will probably see quite a few, the 787 usually seems to do well at airshows.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will 747-8 get any orders?

As I said this is going to be interesting, but IMO there will just be a few for the freighter, but I would like to be proven wrong!

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
737MAX orders?

   - like the A320NEO, the MAX will almost certainly do very well.


As for which airlines will order which, it's not something I've really thought of so far. Hopefully there will be a few surprises!

Airbus will score a lot of orders and we'll have salty fanboys complaining about Airbus storing orders for shows.

Oh wait, we didn't even have to wait for the airshow to start, here's the first one:

My prediction: airliners will be ordered in mind bending numbers!  
Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
How many total orders?

Many. 600+ per OEM

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will any A380's be sold or not?

TK the *most* likely, but A380 orders are rare nowadays. I see fewer than 20, if any at all. TK for 10 my best bet.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A350 orders?

Very possible. I'd agree with anstar:

Quoting anstar (Reply 1):
VS converting their 380 order into 350's to replace the leisure 744 fleet would be my guess.

Though I'll add that a few conversions to the A35K are possible, looking at SQ as the most likely (20). I'd love to see a few 777 operators make the leap across. I predict that more airlines will order both the A35K and the 779 in larger numbers than we think á la CX.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A330 orders?

Sources around seem to suggest a fair amount for the A330Ceo, and as the recent thread testifies, SV are the most likely. I'll drink to that, but I think it'll be 50ish for the Ceo. I'd expect the A330Neo to have a strong show. I'd love a few big A330 customers like CX to order them. The A330, especially the A333 and A339 are amongst the most beautiful and elegant of airliners, so I'm hoping for bucketloads.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
A320NEO orders?

By the gigash*t-tonne. Mostly from LCCs, but I'm hoping for BA to order A320 and A321Neos, with more emphasis on the excellent and helpful-to-LHR-situation A321. Wouldn't mind seeing EZY do the same. I think we may start to see the first inklings of A321NeoLRs on the long, thin 757-style routes. Would be nice to see an LCC daring enough to launch TATL with it.

Boeing

How many total orders?[/quote]

Many!

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will 777X sell or not?

Of course, the 777X will sell very well. I think the orders will be more spaced though, so I'd estimate 100ish, maybe 200.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
787 orders or not?

A few more. About 100. I want more LCCs to order 787s and really make use of them by flying them on never-before-flown routes like LHR-HKG (you know who you are).

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
Will 747-8 get any orders?

I doubt it very much. Possibly as said above a few freighters. But the A380, 777X and A35K are simply better.

Quoting irishpower (Thread starter):
737MAX orders?

Does this need to be asked? MANY. By the... you get it   I would again wager mostly LCCs.

The French newspapers relate some Fabrice Bregier statements saying Airbus will sign significiant A330 ( CEO or NEO?.) orders .
He also expects hundreds of orders during the show , but also says , the show will be a good show , but not a record show.

Perhaps an A330NEO Saudia order.

That would be a big deal--and fantastic news for BBD. If the C-Series is successful with other carriers, expect to see orders start rolling in from the US3. They all need that size airplane in the coming years.

Unlikely, not impossible, but unlikely. IMHO, definitely NOT before the beginning of the new FY on 1 July, the August annual results announcement, is the earliest I think likely, possibly later in the year, right on the reputed deadline for conversion to firm orders.

Paris will be interesting indeed, especially as far as the 777X is concerned.

In terms of who'll order it, besides currently Emirates, Qatar, Etihad, Lufthansa, All Nippon and Cathay Pacific, in the short to mid term, the people I think to watch are Air Canada, Air France, Air New Zealand, American, British Airways, Ethiopian, EVA Air, Korean Air, MAYBE KLM and Thai as well. I know I'm missing a few.

At this show in particular, I'll take a bet and say that IAG, Korean and Ethiopian will order.

The way I see it, the carriers who will NOT order the 777X is Delta, United, Japan Air Lines, Iberia, TAM, LAN, Aeromexico, Egyptair, South African, Alitalia, Aeroflot, Air India, and others. I highly doubt Qantas will jump on.

I'm up in the air about Singapore, Philippines, El Al and Swiss. I'm also assuming the 777X will do fair in China.

I think overall there may be less orders than expected. If the IndiGo order goes through, then Airbus will have a brilliant show in terms of numbers.

Can't really see many orders for the A380 and 747-8, as much as I would like to see them. I think IF the A380neo is to be launched, it will be done at Dubai later in the year. Could the Indian Government be interested in a couple of 747-8BBJs? And what about the Moroccan order for either an A380 or a 747-8i?

777? Maybe some top up orders but not a lot of business. Maybe Ethiopian ordering some 777Xs? Maybe a couple of 777F orders?

Have a feeling that the A350 and 787 won't get mega orders, but a steady stream of smaller orders. Ethiopian: I can see them placing small orders for both.

Have a feeling that the A330 will get substantial numbers of orders, including Saudia.

Can see the A32X and the 737 get substantial orders but maybe not as many as in previous years. The IndiGo order of course may be the exception to this.

C-Series? I really really hope for an order from someone, anyone.... Great plane that deserves to succeed. If Qatar are still interested however, I reckon they will order it in Dubai...

Orders for the new TRJs may come in...

Hope hope hope for some orders for the MRJ...

Qantas and the Dreamliner? I expect that order will come end August. Give us plenty of time to digest Paris and then we can spend countless hours posting opinions and amazement on the size, scope and implications of the Qantas deal.

Cheers,
Bunumuring.

If Bombardier launches the CS500, they need to be prepared to lose the CS100, though there are few sales to begin with.

I think the 500 would be a really good move, and would prove to be a good competitor to the 737 MAX 7/8 and A319/20neo.

Paris is Alan Joyce's back yard. His mentors and his previous colleagues are all from that part of the world. I suspect he would love nothing better than to place an order at Paris just to tell everyone his turn-around of QANTAS is almost done.

The last six years has been a lot of hard yards! This could be some icing for his (and QANTAS's) cake.

Again possible, but I doubt it. The reason I think this is I think the investment managers who basically set the QF share price will want to see FY14/15 results before the are happy for the capex, which is why I think it will be with or after the annual results are released.

Airbus

I suspect orders for the A320NEO and A330 will dominate in terms of value.
There seems to be a lot of noise about A330's in the run up to the show.
The A320NEO is a given to be tops, particularly with Airbus preparing to ramp up to 60 per month.

Plenty of 737 MAX too.
787/777/A350's in fairly small numbers IMO.

Overall I think it will be a quieter PAS than previous years

Airbus: TONS of A320neo family orders, some A330ceo/neo orders, some A350 orders, no A380ceo orders. Possible A380neo "authority to offer" announcement.

Boeing: TONS of 737MAX family orders, more 787-10 orders (Eva Air? All Nippon? British Airways? Cathay Pacific? Qantas? Korean Air? Chinese carriers? Emirates?), more 777-9 orders (Singapore? Eva Air?), no 747-8 orders. Likely announcement of "MOM" aircraft.

Bombardier: CSeries orders frenzy after an official "beating all expectations" announcement (Lufthansa? Air Canada? Scandinavian?). Likely CS500 authority to offer announcement at the end of the show, leaving A & B in hot water.

Embraer: more E-jets E2 orders.

Genuinely interested, but would Swiss order 777Xs when they're only just about to get 77Ws? Is there some rumour that I haven't heard?

Personally, I would be pleasantly surprised to see IAG place an order for the 777X (most likely destined for BA), but I'm not going to be running down to the betting shop to put any pennies on it necessarily happening.

One big splash that I also haven't seen mentioned herein is the potential news from QR. There was a thread on this forum a couple of days ago r.e. comments from AAB and QR's Weibo account, so whether anything will transpire therein will certainly be interesting to watch.

The lessors will come on board the 777X...
Dont look at carriers look at lessors.

When these discussions about orders come we always assume its airlines. But many airshows are driven by lessors and they will order in bulk this time too. I see 777x and 330neo orders...

As always the narrowbodies will get their orders. Some new, some old.

I am more interested in the new players, Mitsubishi, Sukhoi, new embraer and Bombardier. How will they fair? Thats the most interesting segment today.
Will ATR continue to amass orders? or have their books become so full the lemon Q400 will garner some orders? (And yes it is a lemon, called xmas tree virtually everywhere it flies due to malfunctioning stuff)

And the important thing:
please let us see more 747-800. Its the program most likely to be shut down so pls let us see more of this iconic bird. Its an era that will disappear when Boeing cancels this plane. An era that signals my upbringing and the progress that took place in the 20 years after the war. 777X is a dead boring plane, nothing special. 747 that was a bird, that was galancy.

Some A380 as well, just to get rid of the A380 cancelled topics on A.net. Its a great effort however the A380 is like a 3.45 pick up. desperate but in tight enough clothes youll take her...
Even though you know she is too short and too chubby. Step up EK and the A380-900 (i doubt it makes business sense but hey...)

Not to be expected as they already have 787 on order which will replace the A330 (the first 2 A330s will be leaving KL this year).

The only thing one can expect from AF/KL is a NEO/MAX order (partially for Transavia), but given the financial state AF/KL I think they'll wiat a few years.

The two options, which I haven't seen are the A330R for the Chinese. I can vividly remember a remark from JL several months ago that he would not be surprised if a massive 100+ would be landed by the time during the PAS. What I also expect is a SAA conversion from 320 to 330 CEO as a way to transform this company and - not to be forgotten - a firming of the remaining options of the 330 as held by Iberia/IAG. What also can't be excluded form the possibilities - although not at the show, are the 6 MRTT's for the IAF as the final offer will expire within about 4 weeks from now.

PAS 2015 my predictions

Should be a bumper year for Mcdonnell Douglas with a few orders for the DC10-40 and the DC9-30
Hawker will struggle a bit with it's Trident as will the Sud Aviation Caravelle
As for Lockheed the L1011-1 should fly out the door
My money is on Convair and their 880, we are going to see them for years to come

In reality sales at an airshow are a random event, some predictable and others from left field

Sadly the sales for this and many airshows to come will be for similar looking two engine aircraft

A couple of 747-8i s ! Please : BR TK KL EK .

Not going to happen. BR would rather take the 779, which does pretty much the same job but better.
TK would probably make better use of the A380 or 779
KL... maybe, but again, 777X
EK, keep dreaming on that one. There is no way they'd order a plane which is inferior to its current planes for what it wants to use them for. For EK, it's A380s or bust.

I think that ship has sailed. Airbus would not have announced the reductions in A330 build rate if a large order was in the bag.

To be honest why would AF/KL place an order for such an aircraft? KL 747s are going to be replaced by the 77W and they I doubt that a long haul order is something they're working on at AF/KL (at least not the KL part of it).

Quoting travelhound (Reply 27):
Paris is Alan Joyce's back yard. His mentors and his previous colleagues are all from that part of the world. I suspect he would love nothing better than to place an order at Paris just to tell everyone his turn-around of QANTAS is almost done.

Very unlikely, I would imagine.
Making the announcement in Australia before or after PAS would be crucial. It would create it's own wave of publicity in the global media independent of PAS where it could be 'lost' in a wash of large orders. Playing to the Australian media is a priority, and making it in Paris would probably not get the same level of Australian media attention as it would in Sydney (for example).
But I agree about it being Alan Joyce's moment. As I have previously stated, this will be his moment in the sun, his reward for the hard yakka and mud flung at him...

I'd like to see African's involved too. I know ET have a nice order book but did they ever put in an order after saying they wanted a fleet of 100+ in the next few years? A few more 787-8 and maybe 10 787-9. Almost certainly more 737, some MAX.

KQ too should use Paris or Dubai to make a statement of intent, similar aircraft to ET, grow their African network. Certainly more 737 and maybe more 787-8. Have they got enough aircraft on order to replace their 757 and 767, and to an extent 772?

Also maybe some action from Egyptair, Tunisair, Royal Air Maroc.

American Airlines to order 100+ A330Neo to replace their dated B757/767 and A330-300s.

I think, for the most part, American is pretty set. They have enough 737s, in service and on order, and A320s to last several lifetimes! However, I'm expecting them to order the A321neoLR in the short term. What they plan to replace their 767s and, eventually, their 777-200ERs, should be apparent soon.

I don't see AA being as excited about A330 as much as Delta is, therefore, I can't see, at the moment, AA ordering the A330neo. Additional 787s could be 767 replacements.

I DO, however, predict that AA will absolutely love the A350-900. They currently have 24, but that number could rise should they find that it's a great plane. I could also see the A350-900 replacing the 777-200ER, midterm.

I sort of also see the 777-200ER being replaced by the 777-9, no more than 15-20, to provide more growth to AA's most high traffic segments. DFW/JFK-LHR, DFW/GRU, LAX-HKG, etc. IMHO, AA, as well as Air Canada, are the only North American carriers who could use the 777X.

For AA, in the next 10 years:

Airbus A321neoLR
Additional A350-900s
Additional 787s (perhaps more -8s, more likely more -9s, and perhaps the addition of the -10)
Boeing 777-9

Quoting MonsieurX (Reply 34):
Genuinely interested, but would Swiss order 777Xs when they're only just about to get 77Ws? Is there some rumour that I haven't heard?

No, it's not a rumor, although a writer from Airways Magazine suggested that Swiss could eventually end up with the 777X.

I think their partnership with Lufthansa, who DOES have the 777X on order, would make them a little more susceptible. We'll see.

Quoting MonsieurX (Reply 34):
Personally, I would be pleasantly surprised to see IAG place an order for the 777X (most likely destined for BA)

A lot of people, including me, are expecting it to happen at some point. Willie Walsh stated that the 777-9 is a perfect plane for BA, and that it is a "Perfect Fit For Part Of The Network."

Quoting MonsieurX (Reply 34):
One big splash that I also haven't seen mentioned herein is the potential news from QR.

You do know that QR has the 777-9 on order, right? For 50, I think.

I would also put the 777-8 as a possibility as well.

With QTR having several aircraft scheduled to be on display at the show it must be a given that they will order something

789s, 78Xs and 777Xs to replace 757s and 767s? I suspect overkill here! The A330Neo or 788 are a lot more appropriate.
