India's Kingfisher Airlines announced an order for 15 Airbus
jetliners, including five A380 superjumbo jets Wednesday at the Paris
Air Show. Indian start-up airline IndiGo ordered 100 Airbus A320
jetliners, the company said Thursday at the air show. Airbus executive
John Leahy said he is confident Airbus will book more orders than
Boeing in 2005. However, the show is
proving that the twin-engine Boeing 777 is the most popular wide-body
plane, analysts said.
