The 2011 Paris Air Show currently under way has smiled on many manufacturers but on none so benevolently as Airbus, which set a record for the number of new airplane orders announced at any airshow ever: 730 aircraft from 16 customers worth $72.2 billion. The commitments comprise firm purchase orders for 418 aircraft worth $44 billion and MOUs for another 312 aircraft worth $28.2 billion. Slot availability for Airbus aircraft ordered today is as follows: A320, 2014; A320neo, late 2018 to early 2019; A330, 2014; A350, late 2018 to late 2019; and A380, 2015.
