    Philippine Airlines to Order "Several Dozen" Airbus

    Philippine Airlines Inc. is set to place an order for "several dozen" Airbus (ABI.YY) jets next week, the single biggest order to be made by the country's largest full-service carrier, people familiar with the deal said Friday.
    They said that top executives of PAL, as the airline is more popularly known, and the European aircraft manufacturer will meet with members of the media next week to discuss the details of the transaction. "The deal will involve new orders for fleet expansion," one of the people said.
    It isn't clear yet what type of Airbus jets PAL will order.
    Currently, PAL has a fleet of eight aircraft from Boeing Co.--three 777-300ERs and five 747-400s--and 31 Airbus jets comprising four A340-300s, eight A330-300s, 15 A320-200s, and four A319s.
    PAL President Ramon Ang earlier this year announced plans to buy 100 new aircraft over the next five to seven years to update PAL's fleet.
    The airline is currently awaiting the delivery of three more Boeing 777-300ERs.
    Listed PAL Holdings Inc. (PAL.PH), the controlling shareholder of PAL, said in June its board had approved a capital increase that would allow it to issue new shares to raise 17 billion Philippine pesos ($403 million) to help bankroll the refleeting program.

    Qantas cancels Boeing 787 orders

    Australian airline Qantas is canceling an order for 35 of Boeing's new 787 jets as it tries to cut costs.

    The jets would have been worth $8.5 billion at list prices, although discounts are common on large orders.

    The financially struggling airline is still buying 15 787-8s. It is also keeping options that allow it to buy as many as 50 of Boeing's longer 787-9. But it's cancelling orders for 35 of those jets.

    Qantas CEO Alan Joyce says the change is part of trying to make Qantas profitable.

    Boeing Co. says Qantas has been a long-standing customer and it will work with the airline to help it adapt.

    PIA plans to acquire 2 aircraft on dry lease

    KARACHI - Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is planning to acquire two Boeing 777 aircraft on dry lease strictly following PPRA Rules. All the relevant rules of PPRA have been observed from advertisement of the tender to the evaluation and all related processes.
    The contentions of the Transparency International Pakistan are not justified that could be due to their lack of understanding about the technicalities of the induction of aircraft. TIP earlier blamed PIA for specifying brand names for the Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The same was very much in line with the PPRA Rules as the same types of aircraft are already being operated by PIA in its fleet. Induction of the same type of aircraft results in huge savings in terms of cabin and cockpit crew, maintenance engineers and spare parts commonality.
    Now again TIP is accusing PIA for not specifying engine brands and may acquire B777 aircraft with Pratt and Whitney instead of GE Engines. Such strange logic of TIP on specifying brand names is beyond understanding. PIA did not specify the brand name of the engines and would be acquiring aircraft with lowest cost to PIA................

    Xiamen Airlines in talks to buy 30 Boeing 737 MAXs

    BEIJING: Xiamen Airlines is in talks with US plane manufacturer Boeing to purchase 30 737 MAXs, a company official said on Friday - an order worth up to $3.2 billion at list prices.

    The order discussions come as industry players race to capture China's fast-growing air-travel market propelled by an increasingly affluent middle class. Xiamen Air announced an order of 40 Boeing 737-800s two weeks earlier.

    "Regarding the 30 Boeing MAX planes, we are still in discussions," said a public-relations official surnamed Qiu, speaking by phone from the southeastern city of Xiamen.

    The company has also considered purchasing A320neo planes from Boeing's European rival Airbus, but is not currently in talks with that maker, Qiu said, adding that the timetable for any deal was still uncertain.

    Xiamen Airlines, which is set to join the Skyteam alliance this year, operates an all-Boeing fleet of six 757s and 77 next-generation 737s.

    It will receive the 40 planes it ordered earlier this month between 2016 and 2019, pending government approval, it said at the time, and plans to expand its operational fleet to 200 planes by the end of 2020, according to Boeing.

    Airbus set to lose A380 order following axing of London route

    Airbus could lose an order for 10 'super jumbos' following the cancellation by Hong Kong Airlines of its loss-making all-business class flights from London, said the Financial Times.
    It said the airline was considering swapping the order for A380s for the smaller A330 and A320s.
    Hong Kong Airlines announced earlier this month that it was axing its London to Hong Kong flights from September 10 to focus on short-haul routes. The service had been operating for just six months.
    President Yang Jianhong said the airline's plan now was to add A330 and A320 aircraft to its fleet, and not the A380, which is the world's largest aircraft.

    UPDATE 1-HK Airlines to delay Boeing delivery

    HONG KONG, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Hong Kong Airlines plans to replace a number of Boeing planes with Airbus jets and delay delivery of six Boeing freight jets past 2015 from an earlier target of 2013-14 as it seeks to cut costs and unify its fleet.

    President Yang Jianhong said the unit of China's HNA Group would replace five Boeing 787-800 and two B737-300 cargo jets with Airbus A330 and A320 planes this year, aiming to raise efficiency by operating just one brand of aircraft.

    The company's fleet size of 26 will remain unchanged, he added.

    Partly the property of China's fourth largest carrier, Hainan Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines has had a tough few weeks, with Hong Kong's aviation regulator halting the expansion of its 20-strong passenger fleet following complaints about service standards.

    That block raised fresh doubts about billions of dollars of orders lodged with Airbus by the airline, including an order for 10 A380s, also threatened by a row between China and the European Union over carbon emission charges.

    Yang said his company, which competes with the city's dominant carrier Cathay Pacific Airways, had no decision yet on the fate of the A380 order.

    "We have good relations with Airbus and communicate constantly," he said, but declined to comment further.

    Hong Kong Airlines also operates six cargo planes via its subsidiary, Hong Kong Express, and has orders for six B777 freighters set to deliver in 2013 and 2014.

    Engine deal for Rolls-Royce

    Derby-based Rolls-Royce has won a multi-million-pound deal to supply a more powerful version of its Trent XWB engine to Cathay Pacific, to power 10 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft.

    The contract, which is subject to the approval of Cathay’s board, also includes a TotalCare agreement, which will see Rolls-Royce maintain the engines throughout their service life. As part of the deal, Cathay will also convert 16 orders for Airbus A350-900 aircraft to A350-1000s.

    All 26 aircraft will be powered by the higher-thrust version of the Trent XWB engine, which has been developed in Derby specifically for the Airbus A350 XWB family and is the fastest-selling Trent engine ever, with more than 1,100 already sold. Rolls-Royce announced over a year ago that it would be working on an enhanced version of the engine that would give the aircraft greater range and capacity.

    Cathay Pacific firms orders for 26 A350-1000s

    Cathay Pacific has firmed an agreement with Airbus to convert 16 of its Airbus A350-900 aircraft on order into the larger -1000 variant and has exercised an option to purchase 10 new -1000s.

    The Hong Kong-based operator signed a supplemental agreement with Airbus on 8 August 2012, after its major shareholders approved the move.

    The conversion to the larger variant is expected to cost Cathay an additional $1.087 billion at list prices. The carrier's 2010 order for 30 -900s is worth $7.82 billion at list prices.

    The additional 10 new -1000s to be purchased is expected to cost $3.286 billion at list prices.

    Delivery of the 26 aircraft is scheduled to start in 2018, through to 2020.

    Boeing lands big order

    (AP) HONG KONG - China Southern Airlines says a subsidiary is buying 40 Boeing (BA) 737s worth $3.4 billion as part of its strategy to expand international routes.

    The company, which is China's biggest airline by passenger numbers, said its Xiamen Airlines subsidiary is paying "significantly lower" than the $3.4 billion sticker price. It's common practice for plane makers to give airlines discounts, and the final selling price for aircraft is rarely disclosed.
