    Airbus Bank: is the euro crisis getting serious?

    Speaking in London yesterday to outline the Airbus forecast for world airliner sales, chief salesman John Leahy said the company is increasingly worried about a possible "dollar crunch" as European banks struggle under the weight of the eurozone financial crisis to raise the dollar finance that Airbus's customers need to buy its aircraft. The result may be a move by Airbus to vendor financing, to keep aircraft moving from assembly lines to airlines

    Garuda Indonesia takes new plane from Boeing

    State owned airline company PT Garuda Indonesia plans to add the Boeing 737-Next Generation, Garuda director Emirsyah Satar said.
    Emirsyah accepted the airplane from Boeing Operation Delivery Center vice president John Pricco at the Boeing factory in Seattle, USA on Friday.

    Air France-KLM has decided to split a landmark order for 50 long-haul carriers between Europe's Airbus and US rival Boeing, at a total value of $11.3 billion (8.1 billion euros), according to a press report.

    Singapore Airlines May Buy Airbus A350-1000s After Improvements

    WHAT DID they Buy ??? A350 or A330 ???

    Sept. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Singapore Airlines Ltd., the world’s second-largest carrier by market value, said it may order Airbus SAS’s A350-1000 jet as the European planemaker plans improvements in range and payload.
    The airline is also awaiting details of enhancements to Boeing Co.’s competing 777-300ER before deciding which model to purchase, Chief Executive Officer Goh Choon Phong said yesterday at a briefing at Airbus’s headquarters in Toulouse, France. He declined to discuss how many planes the carrier may buy.
    Airbus in June said it would delay the introduction of the A350-1000 so it could make changes including the use of improved Rolls-Royce Holding Plc Trent XWB engines. Singapore Air has 20 of the smaller -900 variants on order, and it also signed a deal for eight 777-300ERs in August because of Asia’s growing regional and long-haul travel.

    FedEx mull A330 order

    CARGO airline FedEx is considering buying wide-body freighters from Airbus and Boeing as it looks to update its aging fleet of aircraft.
    The FedEx's board were due to consider an order for up to 50 Airbus A330 or Boeing 767s at a meeting last night although a final decision may not come for several months.
    Concerns about weak economic outlook in the USA and the potential loss of U.S. Postal Service business could also delay an order.
    A freighter order would be a boost for Airbus. It has secured only 57 A330 freighter orders since committing to the cargo version in 2007. FedEx already operates Airbus A310 freighters.

    Monarch cancels its 787 orders

    Monarch Group, parent of Monarch Airlines (ZB), confirmed it has canceled its order for six Boeing 787s. Boeing mentioned the cancellation of six Dreamliners on its orders and deliveries website last week.
    ZB said it “reassessed its decision” to purchase the aircraft following the strategic decision “to focus as a schedule airline on strengthening and developing its short-haul network, and the delay to the delivery of the Boeing 787 from 2010.”
    The group stressed, however, that the decision to terminate its 787 order did not affect Monarch Aircraft Engineering’s strategy to provide Dreamliner maintenance support.
    “Monarch Aircraft Engineering is proud to have been awarded Boeing GoldCare approval and is committed to providing line and base capability for the 787 from early 2012 in addition to its existing support of Boeing’s 737, 757, 767 and 777 aircraft,” it said.

    Boeing loses out as KQ goes to Brazil for Embraer jets

    Kenya Airways on Tuesday morning signed a purchase agreement that will see the national carrier buy up to 26 jets from Brazilian firm Embraer in a deal that aligns the airline’s expansion plan and threatens the dominance of US aircraft maker Boeing.

    The national carrier has been aggressively moving into new markets, especially in Africa, a move that has put a strain on its fleet, which stood at 31 in March.

    An Embraer spokesperson yesterday said the deal will include the supply of 10 jets and the rights for KQ to purchase an additional 16 whose delivery is expected from the second half of next year.

    Reading this very interesting thread about what airline is buying which aircraft, not forgetting the price of each aircraft.
    Well I must have missed something somewhere, because are we not in the grip of a world recession, is their not an appeal for starving children in Africa, did the world bank threaten to curtail or stop any form of finance to none other than the good old "US of A " because of the state of that countrys finances recently.

    So where, pray tell me, is all the money coming from for these aircraft orders ???

    "Mmm" food for thought".
