In the last update, I said that I would only post the new orders for the second half. Well, I lied. ;-) In the past few weeks, I was able to get some totals for the first half, and I have corrected some of the mistakes in the previous postings. Therefore, the August update still contains the complete listing for the year. I'm most grateful to Stephen Nicoud at Boeing whose info were extremely helpful. I also got an e-mail from an MD marketing person, but she did not offer any help. I have not heard from any Airbus personell, yet. Some comments: 1. I took out China's order of 20 MD90s from the list. I believe the MD90 was a part of the Trunkliner deal signed a few years back. The announcement during the Paris Air Show was only meant to inform the public which Chinese airlines got those 20 MD90s (China Northern will get 11, and China Eastern 9). 2. Comparing with Flight International's total, I found out that I missed an A340 and a B747 order from my list. Thus, I added those two orders to the list with unknown operators. My A320+A321 total is correct, but the individual total is different from Flight International's, so is my B737 total. 4. I saw two reports on EgyptAir's order of three B777s (in addition to three A340s). However, I can't confirm it, so I listed it as a letter of intent. 5. I listed Air China's potential order of 15 B777s as reported by Wall Street Journal. However, with Sino-American relationship at one of its lowest points, it'll take a while to sign the actual contract. 6. The cancellation list is hopeless for me to keep track of. Next time, I will leave it out. The new known cancellation total is mostly based on Flight International's numbers. -- H Andrew Chuang firstname.lastname@example.org
