Etihad Airways

Etihad Airways has disclosed that it will be spending US$ 20 billion on buying 50-100 new planes later on this year for which an announcement is likely to be made at the Farnborough Air Show in the summer. EY will be ordering narrow bodied aircraft (most likely A 320s), medium density aircraft (B 777s / A 330s) as well as high density VLAs (A 380s / B 748s).


Odds are the aircraft that will be ordered would be A 320s, Airbus A 330-200s (for expansion to Europe, India, Africa and Far East Asia), Boeing 777-200LRs (for nonstop flights expansion to USA, Brazil and Australia) and more A 380s (mainly to compete on a head to head basis with EK).
