Etihad Airways Cancels Two A320s


Airbus' latest orders and deliveries report reveals that Etihad Airways cancelled two A320s in October. This move is believed to be related to the two A330-200s it ordered at the end of October. Eithad Airways placed an order for 20 A320s in November 2008, but has taken delivery of only one aircraft to date. Seven A320s have been switched to A321s since that delivery.

Airbus' report also shows that US Airways switched one A319 and 10 A320s on order to A321s. US Airways now has one A319, 10 A320s, and 39 A321s remaining on order.

Lastly, BOC Aviation switched two A320s on order to A321s.
