Long-haul aircraft agreements from Asian carriers Starlux and Korean Air, and a large single-aisle deal with American Airlines, have taken Airbus’s first-quarter net order total to 170 aircraft.

Starlux ordered five A350 freighters and three A330-900s while Korean Air signed for 33 A350s, including 27 of the larger -1000 variant.

The Starlux order brings to 55 the overall number of A350Fs in Airbus’s production backlog.
