So after three days the big news at FIA 18 is that there is no big news.

Are these in addition to the two LEVEL ordered recently - or the same order re publicized?
Looking at this excellent source http://www.a350-production.com/production-list After MSN 221, recently delivered, their are few frames due out of assembly that can go straight to the flightline and on to delivery.

For me, the question is one of current day reality over future promises. Is the A321 that much better than what the B797 will bring to the table taking into account the missions UAL would be using them for? I suspect that both manufacturers will make purchasing them very easy and cheap in an attemp...Jump to post
Seems to be a bit of a shortage of frames rolling out that can be delivered quickly at present. This might be convenient for Airbus as it coincides with the main holiday season in TLS. Hopefully by late August they will be delivering the ULRs for SQ and a load of frames for CA and the other mainland...Jump to post

Yes. The 2 A332 for IAG are some more for Level.
Or to replace the ones that Level took on behalf of IB?

Isn’t Level getting 3 more A332s to reach their planned 7 strong fleet? Either they have to get 3 more from Airbus (via the IB order) or will they take the last used, from IB?

Let this post be a respectful Adieu to the A330-200 and its robust ~700 frame production. Thanks for this very helpful post. The end is close for one of the Airbus great successes.

1882 for Iberia may be the last factory built passenger A330-200 AMD Now that is fascinating. Thank you for the information.

BA in a strong position to exploit their near monopoly situation by reducing capacity and increasing yields. No wonder they are against the third runway.

MSN 167 is actually CA #1...MSN 178 is CA #2...MSN 217 is CA #3. At least according to the order that they were built. Delivery order is another matter!
217 is CA#3 , so it rolling out doesn’t indicate any progress with the CAAC, unfortunately.Geoff #3 CA rolling out of FAL does not mean #3 CA delivered. see QR if you need a precedent.

NMA and MOM are the same thing, if it is launched.

For most of the 2000s A330 rate was @5/month, then in the second half it went up to 10 by what was it 2013. The A350 comes along and they were talking about a rate of 10 eventually.

IIRC the A330 boost to production was to take advantage of a peak in demand and it was always going to drop again. Not really. Rate was supposed to be 84 to 96 a year out the gate and was touted as being up to 120 a year. We are at something like half the original intended rate now. That’s a lot of...Jump to post

He said a few weeks ago that the A330-900 test figures were exceeding their expectations and they would want more of them. By implication they no longer need the A350.
I don't see why Brexit would have any particular impact on a Spanish company buying a Norwegian one. It may have an impact for all airlines on a British AOC (mainly BA), plus the fact that despite being registered in Spain, IAG's HQ is in London. Still a Spanish company though.

Tough for Airbus to sell into the US in this era of protectionism. Hard for US airlines to justify not buying from Boeing. The good news for Airbus is that there are many major markets outside of the US.
QR said they would only take 4 A35K in 2018 IIRC. Could even be less than 10 A35K deliveries in 2018. If QR takes only 4 A35K (that means only three more), then I have a hard time how they could deliver more than 10. According to the spreadsheet, MSN 233 is the 6th A35K for CS, and its parts are ju...Jump to post
