- 60% Q1 ’12 Widebody Market Share
- 787 Delivery Pace Increase
- 777 Revenue Driver
While Airbus and Boeing notched up 11 and 25 new widebody orders respectively in the first quarter of the year, the expected high order intake of the 737MAX will help Boeing draw a degree of sales “parity” with the hot-selling A320neo family – the real focus is on widebody deliveries.
So far this year, there’s a neat 60-40 split in Boeing’s favour, with now all four of its major widebody programs churning out much delayed airplanes from the 787-8 and 747-8 families.
Until the A350XWB family enters service, the 777 and 787 will dominate a market that Airbus presently has no answer or solution to.
