Thought some airliners.net forum members might find the numbers below interesting. The numbers are published on the manufacturers websites in case anyone wants to look.

Deliveries through August 31, 2000

Airbus

Narrow-bodies

A319 - 62
A320 - 64
A321 - 24

Total - 150

Wide-bodies

A300-600 - 2
A330 - 30
A340 - 11

Total - 43

Boeing

Narrow-bodies

717 - 16
736 - 6
73G - 51
738 - 127
752 - 26
753 - 8

Total - 234

Wide-bodies

747 - 17
767 - 25
777 - 34
MD11 - 3

Total - 79

Percentage of deliveries:

Narrow-bodies

Airbus - 39% (150/384)
Boeing - 61% (234/384)

Wide-bodies

Airbus - 35% (43/122)
Boeing - 65% (79/122)

Total Deliveries

Airbus - 38% (193/506)
Boeing - 62% (313/506)

Some Analysis - Total number of seats delivered percentage wise would push the Boeing share over 70% easily because the 747, 757, 777 size advantages over the respective Airbus competitors. This I think is amazing considering Boeing delivered 10 747 and 1 767 freighter during the period.

Any thoughts from other members????

Great news for Boeing. Airbus is still a good company though.

The current deliveries are as stated in Boeings favour by a significant margin over Airbus.
This is however, slowly going to turn the other way over the coming years.
Airbus is recording more orders than Boeing at present and has done every month this year.
In a four week period over July and August this year Boeing recorded 13 new orders comprising
3 x 717
3 x 737-800
1 x 747-400f
6 x 777-200er

Airbus recorded
23 orders, all for A 319 and A320 models

Also interesting to note is that Boeing has only recorded 5 pax versions of the 747 in the last 16 months! These all going to Alitalia. Though plenty of freighters have been sold. So the numbers are still good.

Perhaps the airlines are waiting for the A3XX? If so it may swing the balance toward airbus pretty quickly.

I bet both companies wish they had regeonal jets in their catalogue.

Both Emberer and Bombardier are out selling both Airbus and Boeing in numbers of aircraft.

Yes, would be interesting to see the deliveries of Canadair, deHavilland Canada, Dornier and Embraer. Why is everybody always focussing on Airbus and Boeing?
And one more question, why is the 737-700 being referred to as '73G' - or is that a typo?

The main reason why nearly no 747 passenger plane has been ordered over the last two years is the A3XX-launch and the 747X-discussion.
But, Aussie, there are more orders than the 5 744s going to Alitalia. Virgin ordered 2 last month, and I think Thai ordered also recently (inofficially).

Reason for using G in 73G is to differentiate it from just calling it a 737. Less confusion since you would know if someone is referring to a 737-700 or just a 737.

F-WWKH:

FYI: Canadair and deHavailland Canada are now Bomardier.

As for the '73G' - think of it this way; G is the seventh letter of the alphabet. G = 7 = -700.

It is no surprise for me as I regularly follow all deliveries by studying WAFN magazine. Of course Boeing is ahead with deliveries as their production rates for B737s are very high and their freighters get more and more popular. And not to forget the B777 which is their best selling widebody.
Airbus could deliver many more planes due to their many orders for the A320 family and the A330 but they haven't increased the production rates yet. That should be done soon.
But I don't care who delivers more, the main thing is both deliver many, as well as all the other companies.

Udo

AussieERJ145,

I'm sorry. I don't know where you got your numbers, but they are WAY off. In the time frame you state, between July and August this year, orders look like this:

Boeing

3 - 717-200
29 - 737-700
7 - 737-800
3 - 747-400 (pax, not freighter)
2 - 767-300F
9 - 777-200ER
6 - 777-300LR
59 - Total


Airbus

12 - A319
10 - A320
1 - A330
23 - Total

In addition, of the 9 747-400s sold this year, only 1 is a freighter. Perhaps you should check each manufacturer's website, these numbers can be easily verified. Or you could check out the thread entitled "Orders Boeing/Airbus 2000 Updated" here at Airliners.net. I try and keep that up-to-date.

Regards,
