I was wonder how sales are doing for the 500 and 600?
A346 has a slight lead over the 773ER, which is rather pathetic as it's been available twice as long (it lost it's lead for over a year at that).
A345 remains far ahead of the 772LR in number of units ordered, though it should be noted that the overwhelming majority of those orders were placed when it was the only C-market aircraft available. The Airbus has only been able to secure a single new customer (TG) in the four years since the launch of its twinjet competitor.

Based on favorable reviews I've read recently on the 777-300ER's performance and economics, it seems reasonable that it and its 777-200LR stablemate can soon pull even with the A345/6, provided that pricings of the Boeings aren't too much higher. Even with a slightly higher price, however, it can probably stay in the hunt; reviews in AS&ST and FI have been resoundingly positive.

Michael, he doesn't sound all that upset, to me. And he has a point, despite years of lead time AND a significantly lower price, the A346 only has a nominal lead over the 773ER, one that Boeing could erase with only a couple of significant orders. The A345 DOES have a big lead over the 772LR but remember, that model was put on hold for 18 months before development resumed fairly recently. That model, too, could close much of the gap with only a couple of significant orders and anyway, the C market isn't very big.

Of course, everything C-boy say is right and true
Im just giving the guy (CO737800) facts about the orders for 345/6, is that so wrong, and C-boy called it "rather pathetic"! Sounds to me that C-boy is a humongus loooser, cant stand Airbus as we all know, bla bla bla bla....
I´m outta here

1222 short quips? Woow, somebody´s being working......
So what, as long as we can argue wich "plant" is the best, is that alright with me! Guess its the same for you?
I dont care if SIA swap from A to B, but I will get dissipointed with them!
Airbus superiority?? I never called Airbus superior than Boeing, but I think its a great and bold move of the Europeans to challance the big B and succed!!
Even you must be thinking how boring it would be with only Boeings buzzing around airports
I like Boeing.....i really do, exept WalMarts 736 but I think you know that.
U can call me what you like, but I stand for what I´m saying:
Vive la diffrencé

since when was Concorde called the Airbus A350 Concorde
Solnablo has got a point there, although not very maturely argued. After a simple question was asked you lot have instantly bashed the A340ng's. Even though more are on order/delivered. So what if the A345 was out earlier, so what if the Airbus is cheaper (190m vrs 215m), business is business. If you're sure that you're beloved 777NG's are going to outsell the A340NG's you should sit back with a quiet confidence and laugh louder when/if the time comes.

Well that's settled then, Concorde is an Airbus aircraft . I shall look forward to arguing that next time somebody starts telling me Airbus make inefficient and poor plane, and also that Airbus PR make such a big deal about their products. Such a big deal i couldnt even find Concorde on their website.

My apologies, EADS.
Point remains above for ConcordeBoy, Concorde was built by the old BAE and old Aerospatiale, with Aerospatiale now owned by EADS. EADS also controls Airbus. No real link to Concorde except through founding companies.
717 is a completely different concept.

But it's curious... still is the A346 with a higher in max. take off weight (804.700 lb/ 365.000 kg vs 750.000lb/ 340.195 kg) I thought the heaviest plane currently was the 773ER.... anyway... it's the same.This summer I will go to JFK from CDG in the newest AF's plane with a friend of mine who is an AF- emp; but before I will try it with the IB's A346.I promise to be honest and sincere. I'll say my real opinion of both planes.
