  • World Airliner Directory: Airbus v Boeing is a war on two fronts

    News | 21 Oct 2014 12:12 | Günter Endres

    The campaign for market share between Airbus and Boeing is being fought on two fronts. In single-aisles, both airframers have adopted similar gameplans by re-engining existing models and – with bulging backlogs and plans to ramp up monthly production between now and the end of the decade – are in a head-to-head battle for market share. It is a race that Airbus is winning, both in terms of orders and being first to market. Its A320neo flew in September. By then, Airbus had logged 3,257 firm ¬orders, compared to 2,219 for the 737 Max. In widebodies the situation is different, with Toulouse and Seattle adopting very different product strategies: Boeing launched its 777X a year ago and is offering two variants of its revamped large twin alongside three versions of its 787 Dreamliner.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/World-Airliner-Directory-Airbus-v-Boeing-is-a-war-on-two-fronts-405009/
