    ​Airlines, it seems, cannot get enough of Airbus and Boeing narrowbodies. With the latest re-engined versions of the A320 family and the 737 due to enter service in the next two years, and both manufacturers sitting on hundreds of orders, deliveries of their existing single-aisle types have continued to mount over the past 12 months.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-size-and-shape-of-the-world-airliner-fleet-revealed-in-our-census-415505/

It is beginning to take that business transatlantic, beyond its traditional domestic customer base, although Europe remains a driver of growth too.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-How-TBM-brand-has-created-a-halo-effect-for-Daher-413215/
