The Paris Airshow’s Thread:

More will be updated as more information comes out about these purchases

What do you think will happen?

Will Emirates sign a deal on the A380 Plus? Will Delta buy more B737’s?


Emirates does not need more A380s, I’m hoping that the 737 picks up some orders


Not to mention Emirates new First Class on the 777! Can’t wait, let’s see if it beats Singapore’s. I do hope EK will possibly change the order from A380’s to the A380 Plus.


I really want to see what happens with Emirates and the A380+

It’s going to be interesting


I bet you Emirates comes out with at least 100 A380+ orders, but I hope someone orders some more 777X


What are the odds of a 747 buy?!? #UnitedBuysB747-8?!?! :D


No, maybe FedEx or UPS might get more -8Fs though, United is done with the queen


Emirates always needs more A380s! 😂


I could see them transferring their A380 orders to A380+ though…


Expect an order of 20 777X to be announced. Boeing has 20 listed under the unannounced buyer category.


Or 737-MAXES. That’s possible. 😊

Emirates should probably be placing an order of 350’s or 787’s.

Didn’t emirates cancel their A350 orders though?

I hope Etihad places some A350 orders?


Nah, they cancelled their A380 orders until there was a plus/neo version made, so we can expect some orders for that.
