    And the orders are coming in thick and fast from the Paris show.

    Airlines are tending to order narrow-body aircraft rather than wide-bodies. No others yet for the revised A380.

    One major order, announced just a few mins ago, is from United which has signed for 100 (one hundred) B737 MAX-10s.

    Here’s our report from yesterday re the MAX 10

    Boeing unveils B737 Max 10

    Canadair CS300 also there and very comfortable Air Baltic aircraft, easily competes with B737s. Great toilets and mood lighting!
    CS300 can carry 42 business pax LCY-JFK nonstop so good competition for old A318s too.

    No orders, at the time of writing, for Canadair/Bombardier.

    Most orders are for Airbus/Boeing.

    Although Brazil’s Embraer has picked up a handful. Two E190s were ordered by KLM for its Cityhopper fleet.

    Many Bombardier Q400s ordered so they’re happy. Its wait and see for the CS100/300 however a very good aircraft, and Boeing are worried, so they’re trying to sue them!
