A TAP tem encomendado à Airbus doze A350, que vai começar a receber a partir de 2014.
After running it through google translate, it says
TAP has ordered twelve Airbus A350, which will start receiving in 2014.
I'm wondering if there are any Portuguese speakers here who can confirm whether TAP is saying that they will receive the aircraft in 2014 or if it is saying that Airbus will start delivering the aircraft in 2014. I already have TAP down as receiving their first aircraft in 2015 however with this, I'm wondering if this has been pushed forward to 2014.
I think we can all agree that a delivery to TAP in 2014 won't happen. It will already be very difficult to deliver the first aircraft to Qatar, and I believe SQ will be second. Three new customers before the end for 2014 is nearly impossible.
Starbucks production list reckons that MSN8 will go to SIA.
Quite possible. I have removed the msn's from QR # 3 and 4 and added SQ # 1 as unknown. SQ expects it's first in 2015 now (source).
Just like Starbucks I have read somewhere that "all" 2014 deliveries will be for QR. Also somewhere hidden on the internet, Airbus stated they hope to deliver 3 or 4 A350's in 2014 (sorry, can't find the link anymore...)
Emirates? Didn't think they were getting any in 2014?
I personally only thought we would see no more than 3 deliveries this year so I find it interesting to see that they're reporting 6 deliveries including 2 for EK. I think the article you linked in the reply before mine is more accurate and I still think 6 is a bit optimistic.
