This year’s Farnborough Air Show has seen billions of dollars of orders from airlines around the world for new aircraft by the main manufacturers.

It seems to have been a quieter year for orders than previous events, but the appetite for newer aircraft is certainly strong, with the A350, A320neo family and 737 MAX family doing particularly well.

A standout order was the one from Virgin Atlantic for A350-1000 long haul aircraft to replenish its fleet and replace the Boeing 747-400s.
