In the Arianespace launch list (which is very good!) you have ATV-6 included. To my knowledge there are only five ATV ordered.There is an option for two more but they are far from approval.
The Soyuz 2-1a launchers aboard MN Colibri will be utilized for Arianespace’s two maiden flights from the Spaceport, whose candidate payloads include the HYLAS telecommunications satellite for Avanti Communications Group plc., and the French CNES space agency’s Pléiades Earth observation satellite.http://www.arianespace.com/news-soyuz-vega/2009/2009_11_07.asp
"Next year will see three Soyuz launches, two of 2-1a and one of 2-1b. The July launch is for UK-based Avanti Communications' Hylas satellite. October will see France's Pleiades orbited and the third launch, in November, will be for the first two Galileo satellite navigation satellites. For their orbit, they need the Soyuz 2-1b with its better upper stage.http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2009/11/30/335601/soyuz-to-go-west-in-2010.html"

Err, is the difference between the 2-1a and 2-1b not the third stage, while they have a similar Fregat upper stage
Quote from: sammie on 12/04/2009 02:55 pmErr, is the difference between the 2-1a and 2-1b not the third stage, while they have a similar Fregat upper stageI think that "upper stage" means "third stage" in that report.
However, the FREGAT will also be modified for better performance (FREGAT-MT)
According to Wikipedia next launch is planned for 27 January 2010 with Astra 3B and ComSatBw-2 payloads.
