I thought it would have been interesting to see what effect the current world economic conditions might have on the commercial orders taken at the bi-annual Paris Air Show.

Interesting (Final):

Boeing = 2x 737-800 MCAP
7 x 777 THY Airlines (Turkish)
Airbus = 20 x A320 Qatar Airways
4 x A321 Qatar Airways
50 x A320 Wizz Air (Turkish)
2 x A350 Vietnam Airlines
16 x A321 Vietnam Airlines
10 x A350 Air Asia
5 x A320 Cebu Airlines
1 x A320 Zest Airlines
1 x A319 Aigle Azur
10 x A321 Paramount Airways (India)
7 x A330 THY Airlines (Turkish)
Bombardier (Canadian)= 35 x CRJ 1000 NextGen (100 seater) Nostrum Airlines(Spanish) @ $24.7 mil each
Sukhoi = 30 x Superjet 100 Malev Airlines (Hungarian)
24 x Superjet 100 Avialeasing
Also a 100 seater but sells for $ 20 mil each
Embraer (Brazil)= 7 x Embraer 190 KLM CityHopper
1 x Embraer 175 Fuji Dream Airlines
2 x Embraer 179 Fuji Dream Airlines
ATR (co-owned EADS and Finmeccanica) = 2 x ATR 72-500 Viernam Airlines
4 x ATR 72-500 Afrijet Airlines (Nigeria)
10 x ATR 72-600 Air Nostrum
4 x ATR 72-600 Royal Air Marroc
2 x ATR 42-600 Royal Air Marroc
Interesting to note that the Superjet was developed in collaboration with Finmeccanica of Italy. Sukhoi hope to have finalized 150 orders by the end of 2009. (already have orders for 122)
Bombardier, the market leader in this segment, will find this quite a stiff challenge from a not so familiar player!

Note : in 2007 on Monday 416 planes were sold. Tuesday = 90; Wednesday = 155; Thursday = 126 and on the last day, Friday 40
Sure tells a story ....

I saw on an aviation newsletter that a Boeing spokesman commented that Boeing "did not 'save' (hold back the announcement) of orders" for announcement at the airshow .
Meaning that Airbus is overstating the amount of orders for the benefit of publicity ?
Or is it possible that Boeing is so deep in the doldrums ?

You need to look at their total current order book and recent (last 2-3 years) actual deliveries to be able to compare their relative strength.
Are the A400 problems affecting Airbus' airliner division or are they sufficiently separated?
Does Boeing have solid financial walls between their airliner and military divisions?
