We were curious about archrival Boeing’s total commercial aircraft orders. Considering the American manufacturer started much earlier than Airbus, and its 737 program had a 20-year headstart on the A320, their number should be much higher. Furthermore, Boeing’s 747 program has been much more successful than both the A340 and the A380. As such, we reached out to Boeing to see if we could get a figure for the sake of comparison. At the time of publishing this article, we have yet to receive a response.
This is overall great news for Airbus and it’s a pretty sure bet that this is ‘just the beginning’ as markets like China and India continue to boom whilst emerging markets like Africa continue to develop as well.
