That what Boeing is doing. They have more orders for the 737 that they haven't announced yet. The Avianca livery looks decent for them. But I prefer the old one better.

Boeing doesn't do it as much as Airbus. Several bigger orders were firmed up by Boeing last month, just not revealing the customer yet for some of them. Airbus only booked 1 order for 3 planes while more orders have been announced by the airlines (see Singapore, Lufthansa, Kuwait) and it's even a firm order that gives a big hint that the airliner in question won't place the big neo order that Airbus probably had expected. Otherwise these 3 A320s for easyJet would have been announced together with a big neo order at Paris...

This is a stretch but I wonder if the A318 with Sharklets can do LCY-JFK without the stop in Shannon. Does British Airways still do this flight?

It still does! In fact, the flight numbers for both LCY-SNN-JFK-LCY flights have the original Concorde numbers (BA001/003 from LCY, BA002/004 from JFK). The duo A318s have all-Business Class seating (seating 32), complete with WiFi, ability to use your mobile phone on board, laptop power, and a full lie-flat bed. Everything you can think of for a Business/First Class journey between London and New York, two of the world's economic superpowers.

More information can be read here, as well as what you get to enjoy on board. As for the A318 with sharklets to be retrofitted on the two aircraft, that's a really good question... if the range improves to cover LCY-JFK nonstop (westbound), then it will be a really feasible idea to add one more flight.

The first firm order for the A320neo during this year´s Paris Air Show was announced today.

Quote:
ILFC orders 50 more A320neo Family aircraft
Repeat order from leading lessor confirms market preference for NEO

17 June 2013 Press Release

Industry leading aircraft lessor, ILFC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of American International Group, Inc., has signed a firm contract for the purchase of 50 additional A320neo Family aircraft. The contract was announced today at the Paris Air Show by ILFC Chief Executive Officer, Henri Courpron and John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.



ILFC was the first lessor to commit to the A320neo Family with a firm order placed in 2011 for 100 aircraft. With this latest order, ILFC increases its total firm NEO order tally to 150. ILFC will make its engine selection for the aircraft at a later date. Including this latest contract, ILFC remains Airbus’ largest customer, having ordered a combined total of 769 single-aisle and widebody Airbus aircraft.

“The A320neo is firmly established as a long-term cornerstone of ILFC’s portfolio of modern, fuel efficient aircraft. The NEO allows ILFC to offer its customers a single-aisle aircraft family that delivers a significant reduction in fuel consumption and the widest, most comfortable cabin in its class,” ILFC Chief Executive Officer Henri Courpron said. “We have already seen significant market interest in the NEO and that is why we have come back for more. We must be ready to deliver the product that airlines want and that will enable them to take advantage of the significant growth air transport will see over the coming years.”

“We are delighted to see our valued and long-standing customer ILFC coming back for more A320neo aircraft. This is clear signal of the continuing strong demand for Airbus’ most modern, fuel efficient aircraft which day in, day out, deliver profitability to their owners and a great travel experience to the passengers,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “With a portfolio of 150 A320neo’s at ILFC, we can take that as a strong confirmation of the NEO’s market leading position.”

The A320neo is offered as an option for the A320 Family and incorporates new more efficient engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, which together will deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings. At the end of May 2013, firm orders for the NEO stood at 2125 from 40 customers, making it the fastest selling commercial airliner ever and underlining its market leadership position with close to 60 per cent market share.

Lufthansa firms up order for 100 A320 Family aircraft
Largest Airbus airline customer and operator in Europe

17 June 2013 Press Release

The Lufthansa Group has firmed up a previous Supervisory Board decision from March this year and signed for 100 A320 Family aircraft (35 A320neo, 35 A321neo and 30 A320ceo with Sharklets) at the Paris International Airshow in Le Bourget, France.



The Lufthansa Group has been operating the A320 Family since October 1989. They were the launching customer for the A321 and belonged to the first operators of the A319 and A320. The new order confirms Lufthansa’s leading position as the largest Airbus airline customer and operator in Europe, increasing its order for the A320 type to 299. Over 150 of these aircraft have already been delivered.

“These modern and fuel-efficient aircraft will meet the future growth and fleet renewal needs of the Lufthansa Group airlines. By purchasing these aircraft, we will be able in the long term to offer customers a comfortable and modern product in the highly competitive environment. In addition, these aircraft are contributing significantly to reduce noise and emissions wherever we fly our aircraft to”, said Nico Buchholz, Executive Vice President, Lufthansa Group Fleet Management.

“Lufthansa is a loyal customer, and has been operating our aircraft for almost 40 years. We are extremely pleased to receive this repeat order and thank our prestigious customer for their continuing strong commitment to our eco-efficient products. The A320 Family represents the highest level of operational performance while also offering Lufthansa passengers superior level of comfort and services,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.

The A320neo Family has captured some 60 percent of the single aisle market in just over two years since it was launched, clearly demonstrating its market leadership. Incorporating new engines and Sharklets these new aircraft are set to deliver fuel savings of 15 percent. In addition, the A320neo Family will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine noise. The A320neo will enter into service from late 2015, followed by the A319neo and A321neo in 2016. The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling and most modern single aisle aircraft family. To date, nearly 9,500 aircraft have been ordered and close to 5,600 delivered to more than 380 customers and operators worldwide.

That's a large-scale order. Any other potential buyers that you can think of, especially that the Paris Air Show is now on? And by the way, any large-scale orders from the US or Asia (particularly China) yet? It looks like the A320 NEO will be yet another success story of the A320 family, and hopefully, more orders will be made, especially now that AA will be merging with US Airways... American should retire its entire MD-80 fleet soon and head towards the A320 family.

EasyJet sets sights on Airbus A320neo for future fleet development

Selects 100 A320neo and 35 A320ceo

18th June

After a thorough technical evaluation, easyJet has earmarked the Airbus A320neo for its future fleet requirements.



Based on the company’s growth forecasts, the A320 was selected for offering the best productivity, lowest operating cost and best fuel efficiency of any single aisle aircraft in the 180 seat sector. Currently easyJet operates a fleet largely based on the smaller A319 seating 156 passengers.

Subject to shareholder approval, easyJet has identified a future need for 100 A320neo aircraft. These will be preceded by 35 A320ceo aircraft equipped with Sharklets. Of the 135 aircraft, 85 will be for replacement.

“The NEO is without doubt the most productive and fuel efficient aircraft around. It has the widest and tallest cabin of any single aisle aircraft for faster turnaround operations and better passenger comfort. We are delighted our reliable aircraft have met easyJet’s demanding criteria,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer-Customers.

This order will sustain nearly 2,500 jobs as well as some 7,500 in the extended supply chain in the UK.

easyJet operates one of Europe’s most extensive route networks, and is the UK’s largest airline carrying 55 million passenger a year. easyJet is also the largest A320 Family customer and operator in Europe.

The A320 Family is the world’s most successful with over 9,500 ordered and over 5,600 delivered to over 380 customers and operators.

Tunisia’s Syphax Airlines orders the A320neo and the A320ceo

18th June

Syphax Airlines, a new Tunisian based airline, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to buy three A320neo. The order is the first time an African based carrier has ordered the NEO and marks a significant breakthrough for Airbus in one of the world’s fastest developing markets. Syphax have also ordered three A320ceo aircraft. The aircraft will be powered by CFM engines.



“Syphax Airlines is focused on continuing to grow its Tunisian, North Africa and Europe routes, and an expansion of its network to Asia and North America, through its hubs in Tunis and Sfax while offering passengers a luxurious service,” said Syphax Chairman and Director General, Mohamed Frikha. “Adding the A320neo to our fleet means we can achieve all of these goals while benefitting from a 15 percent fuel saving and cost effectiveness.”

“We thank Syphax Airlines for their confidence in Airbus and for being the first African carrier to place an order for our NEO aircraft,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We’re looking forward to seeing Syphax’s A320neo aircraft operating seamlessly alongside their current A320 fleet, delivering to them savings through reduced maintenance and pilot training costs as a result of the high degree of commonality between the aircraft models.”

The airline already operates 2 A319 and 3 A320 aircraft and will shortly commence operating a leased A330-200.

The A320neo is offered as an option for the A320 Family and incorporates new more efficient engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, which together will deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings. At the end of May 2013, firm orders for the NEO stood at 2125 from 40 customers, making it the fastest selling commercial airliner ever and underlining its market leadership position with close to 60 per cent market share.

How many Chinese airlines have order the A320NEO? Maybe ANA and JAL should order the NEO. There hasn't been any news about them ordrering either the MAX or the NEO. The A320NEO steals the headline of the airshow again. American has big orders for the MAX and NEO.

Airbus delivers landmark aircraft for its largest Latin American operator

18th June

LATAM Airlines Group received its 200th A320 Family aircraft during the Paris Air Show today, highlighting an important milestone for one of Airbus’ major worldwide customers.



The jetliner, a Sharklet-equipped A320 that will operate under the TAM Airlines livery, was accepted during a ceremony at Le Bourget Airport this morning.

This 200th A320 Family delivery is the latest milestone for Airbus and the LATAM Airlines Group – which is the company’s third largest airline customer.

LATAM Airlines Group was created through the merger of Chile-based LAN and TAM of Brazil, in 2012. Airbus’ relationship with these associated airlines dates back to 1998, when LAN and TAM joined TACA to place a joint order for 90 A320 Family aircraft, with an option for 90 more – the largest commercial aviation contract in Latin American history at the time.

In 2011, LAN Airlines placed the region’s first firm order for the A320neo, while TAM is set to become the first Latin American operator of the A350 XWB, with a firm order for 27 of these next-generation widebody airliners – making it the largest A350-900 customer in the Americas and fourth largest worldwide.

A total of more than 500 Airbus aircraft are in operation throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. In the past 10 years, in-service Airbus aircraft in the region have tripled, while the company has delivered more than 60 per cent of all airliners operating in this part of the world.

Hong Kong Aviation Capital signs for 60 A320neo Family aircraft

Aircraft financier confident in market demand for efficient NEO

20 June 2013

Hong Kong Aviation Capital (HKAC), a fast growing aircraft leasing company based in Hong Kong, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for the purchase of 40 A320neo and 20 A321neo aircraft. The agreement was signed at the Paris Air Show by Donal Boylan, CEO of HKAC and John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.



“All of our business over the last two years has been sale and lease backs of Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft. We are proud to now extend this relationship directly with Airbus, and in particular to participate in the already proven success of the A320 NEO order book. This is our first direct order with any aircraft manufacturer and our first commitment for the A320 NEO” said Donal Boylan, CEO of HKAC.

“We are delighted to have HKAC as our new customer for the NEO, the world’s best selling single-aisle aircraft. This demonstrates the continuing confidence of the market in Airbus’ modern, fuel efficient aircraft which brings benefits to our customers in terms of profitability,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We hope to grow our long term partnership with HKAC in the future.”

HKAC is a Hong Kong based lessor which currently has a portfolio of over 50 Airbus aircraft. It has provided financing leasing services to several airlines in Asia and worldwide. It’s the first time for HKAC to directly place orders with any aircraft manufacturer.

The A320neo incorporates new more fuel efficient engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, which together deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings.

Spirit Airlines to grow fleet with largest Airbus single-aisle model

U.S. low-cost carrier signs firm order for 20 A321ceo aircraft
1st North American carrier to feature Space-Flex cabin option, room for more seats


20 June 2013

Spirit Airlines has placed a firm order for 20 Airbus A321 aircraft and additionally has opted to convert 10 of its existing A320 orders to the larger A321. All of these aircraft are current engine option (ceo) models. Spirit’s A321ceos will accommodate increasing passenger numbers in the airline’s network in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America. All of the A321ceo aircraft will be fitted with fuel-saving Sharklets and will seat 219 passengers in a single-class layout.



The announcement was made today during the Paris Air Show.

“Spirit’s priority has always been to save its passengers money, while transporting them as comfortably as possible,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “That is exactly what the A320 Family allows the airline to achieve. These are eco-efficient machines with wonderful comfort.”

“We are pleased to expand our partnership with Airbus and excited about the growth opportunities and additional cities we will be able to liberate from high fares with the addition of these aircraft,” said Ben Baldanza, Chief Executive Officer of Spirit Airlines.

The new Spirit A321s will also be the first North America-based aircraft to feature the Space-Flex cabin option. This rear lavatory and galley combination optimizes use of the available space at the very back of the aircraft. The configuration also allows for the first lavatory in the single-aisle market to be accessible to people with reduced mobility.

With this order announced today, Spirit’s firm orders total: 7 A319s, 98 A320s (including 45 A320 new engine option aircraft) and 30 A321s. The airline currently operates a fleet of some 50 A320 Family aircraft.

The A320 Family is the world’s most successful aircraft with over 9,500 ordered and over 5,600 delivered to more than 380 customers and operators.

This French article claims that the easyJet order comes with 1 special demand.
http://www.lepoint.fr/economie/la-cl...1683861_28.php

easyJet wants Airbus to certify the A320 for 192 seats instead of the current maximum of 180. This means that the design of A320 has to be adjusted and it's not the extra seats that are the problem here. That can be done by reshuffling the cabin lay-out and using slim seats. The limiting factor are the evacuation times, that can be changed by widening the doors or adding an extra small emergency door. But this has to be certified again to make it possible. That takes time and money, turning this into a small but extra risk for Airbus.
