Airbus predicts several hundred A320neo orders before Jun-2011

Airbus Sales Chief John Leahy predicted several hundred firm orders for the A320neo between now and the Paris Air Show in Jun-2011 (Reuters, 16-Feb-2011). He also accused Boeing of procrastinating over whether to follow Airbus in upgrading B737 equipment with new engines, and predicted it would abandon talk of a complete redesign.
