For the Airbus A330-900neo, the outcome of Farnborough was crucial as AirAsia
X finally confirmed their commitment to the
type, not following other airlines to switch
to the Boeing 787. AirAsia X gave Airbus
more cause to celebrate as the airline topped
up its existing order with 34 more firm aircraft. Nigeria Airways revived the struggling
A330-800neo with a LOI for two aircraft,
bringing total A330neo sales at Farnborough
to 42. IAG added two more A330-200s to
the order book. Airbus also signed a MoU
for 12 A350-1000's and five -900s with
Starlux Airlines. Sichuan placed a firm order
for 10 -900s, while an LOI for eight -900s
was signed by an unannounced customer.
Airbus did not take a demonstrator A380
to Farnborough this year and obviously did

not book any orders for the type. There was,
however, some good news for this mega jet
as later during the week an ex-Singapore
Airlines plane, now leased to Hi Fly, visited
the Airshow. For lessor Doric, there was a
reason to celebrate, as much hard work saved
their aircraft from being parted out. Other
smaller Airshow orders were booked for the
CRJ900 and the ATR turboprop family.
After the Airshow, a few analysts noticed
the unusually large number of commitments
from undisclosed customers - 415, which
is almost double the number from Paris
2017. The background for this shyness
seems to be the reluctance of Asian  -
in particular Chinese - customers to be
identified in a world that is under threat of
an escalating trade war across the Pacific.

While for many the annual airshow seems
to become a kind of Groundhog Day - where
the week's developments serve as a predictor of the industry's future - there are
always plenty of things to enjoy. Whether it's
sampling a nice lunch in one of the chalets,
talking new aircraft developments with the
OEMs, watching the aircraft demonstrate
their capabilities or just catching up with
friends in the ISTAT Chalet, surely no one
left Farnborough having had a boring time.
And the ISTAT Chalet was once more
a great home away from home, offering
perfect views on the flying action, air conditioning, cool drinks to recover from the
heat and - hurray - ice cream, kindly
donated by Adam Pilarski. Indeed, it was
enough to make everybody happy!
