Ethiopian Airlines is reportedly negotiating a deal for 10-15 Boeing 777-8 aircraft.
GE Capital Aviation Services has delivered the first of two new Boeing 787-9s to Air Canada as part of a purchase-and-leaseback deal.
United Airlines has launched a nonstop route between San Francisco and Singapore flying the Boeing 787 - the longest Dreamliner route currently in service.
Emirates is close to finalizing a deal for either the 787 Dreamliner or Airbus A350. The airline intends to close on an agreement with one or the other aircraft manufacturer in time for July's Farnborough Air Show.
Airbus is evaluating whether developing an even larger A350 model - larger still than the 366-seat A350-1000 still under development - would be supported by market demand.
Analysts are already predicting the demise of the A380 production line in the not-so-distant future, as new orders continue to grow sparse.
