MAY I TAKE YOUR ODER? Airbus picked up orders for its new A350, announcing 59 sales of the wide-body jet. Singapore Airlines ordered 30. Air France-KLM, 25 and SriLankan Airlines will buy four A350s and six slightly smaller A330 jets.

THE TAB: The A350, which typically seats 314 passengers, lists for $287.7 million. The A330 has a list price of $239.4 million. Discounts are common.

CONFIDENCE BUILDER: The announcements at the Paris Air Show represent a vote of confidence in the A350, which Airbus hopes will help it catch up to Boeing's popular 787 and 777 in wide-body jets.
