Airbus A380The European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus overtook Boeing by new orders in 2014. The orders for European concern are significantly higher than those for Boeing, solid person familiar with the matter. Last year, Boeing had 1,550 orders, and net of cancellations, the number of net orders totaled 1,423. Both figures are higher at Airbus. Airbus is expected to submit the data next week and announced that it has surpassed its American rival.

With regard to supplies themselves, however Boeing is likely to remain an industry leader with 723 deliveries. According to internal company data Airbus broke his record of 626 deliveries made in 2013. But analysts say absolutely certain that competitor from the US will be more to come. Recall that in late September 2014 Airbus increased its forecast for demand for aircraft in the next 20 years. European company reported strong demand for machinery for the long haul wide-body, as the limitations of some airports are forcing airlines to replace small aircraft on a number of routes. Furthermore, Airbus can increase the production of their models A330neo and A350.

Airbus and Boeing are the only manufacturers of aircraft for long-haul wide-body. In addition, they dominate the market of medium range jet with a corridor, such as models Airbus A320 and Boeing 737. Both companies intend to obtain its popular small models with new engines to save fuel.
