Airbus Mops The Floor with Boeing
The year-to-date figures from Boeing are pretty meager in comparison to Airbus, which delivered 611 aircraft to 88 customers in 2021.
Such a statement is not surprising given the woes that Boeing has had with the 737 MAX, the 787 as well as the delayed 777X program as well.
In the financial call that Boeing is yet to host, a point surrounding where the manufacturer is going to go next is essential, so then such a roadmap can begin to restore confidence further.
This includes fixing the issues with the 737 MAX and the 787 as well as aiming to get the 777X into commercial service, as quickly but as safely as possible.
All eyes are now on Boeing to see how they will recover from what has been a poor year.
