Canadian fashion model Linda Evangelista once famously said she wouldn't "get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day".
Twelve months ago Airbus chief operating officer customers, John Leahy, might have had a similar attitude. But how things have changed.
At the Paris Airshow, Airbus issued a statement announcing Philippine carrier Zest Airways ordered for one A320. That's right. Not 10 but ONE A320.
Leahy was quoted in the release talking about how pleased he was that Zest Airways had decided to buy from the manufacturer.
Its also interesting to note that this aicraft is due to be delivered to Zest Airways next month. It used to be that airlines had to wait months and years for aircraft to be delivered. That is no longer the case.
