Qantas Boeing 747 Take Off: Manchester Airport, UK

Qantas used to be a regular visitor to Manchester Airport in the UK. However, their operations are now focused at London Heathrow.

Luckily, very rarely, a Qantas aircraft (usually Boeing 747 to date) visits Manchester. This was one of those times.

AirAsia Expects To Order More Airbus A320's

Asia's largest low cost carrier AirAsia expects to announce a firm order with Airbus for 50 A320's and options on another 50 within the next two months.

The carrier was one of the first to order Airbus' new A320neo, placing an order for 200 of the type during the Paris Airshow in June 2011. These aircraft are due to be delivered from 2016 onwards.

Boeing, United Announce Massive 737 Order

Boeing has today announced that United Airlines has placed a firm order for 150 737 single-aisle aircraft worth up to $14.7 Billion. The order, which is made up of 100 737 MAX 9 and 50 737-900ER's takes Boeing over the 10,000 737 orders mark - an amazing achievement which reinforces the manufacturers claim that the 737 is the best selling plane ever built.

The 737-900ER aircraft will be delivered starting next year (2013) whilst the 737 MAX 9 aircraft will be delivered starting in 2018.
