Quoting Thegeek (Reply 6): Roughly 100 months of backlog for both A & B (or 8 years). Are A & B going to be increasing their production rates soon?
Over the next 2-3 years, Airbus should see another 5 or 6 A320's per month, and of course, the A380 should hit 4 per month in 2010.
Boeing in that time should see 787 deliveries ramp up into double figures per month, which as far as I can see, is a direct addition to the current delivery rate.
I would expect delivery rates by 2010 to be of the order of 45-50 frames per month for each manufacturer.
Which means backlogs will still be in excess of 6 years overall.......

If folks find this helpful, and I promise to double-check the numbers before I post the next one, I'm more than happy to produce this data each month. Personally, I find it helpful to see what both manufacturers have done month-on-month. The biggest frustration is having to wait till the middle of the following month before we get Airbus's numbers.
Does anyone know an easy way to find Boeing order conversions - it's reasonably simple (if a little tedious) for Airbus because the O&D spreadsheet contains a complete list of every airline that operates the types (even if they've never ordered directly from Airbus). I'm not aware that the same data is available from Boeing.

Quoting Scouseflyer (Reply 12): Something that I've noticed - is that Airbus seems to of overtaken Boeing in the size of the backlog (is this for the first time?)
I believe Airbus has previously had a bigger backlog than Boeing. Boeing's three straight 1,000+ years enabled them to catch up and move ahead of Airbus. This month Airbus is back in front, next month it could be Boeing again. To be honest, comparing backlog on a month-to-month basis is no more than interesting, while comparing on a year-by-year basis certainly reveals more.

The best method I've found is to look in their "Standard Reports" then "Report by Model" listing. There it will give you a breakdown of the various sub-models. Once listed, just check it against previous months (however, this assumes that you have a seperate listing of the previous months breakdown. For me, I've been keeping Excel spreadsheets on orders for nearly five years now, so it's a bit easier ).
Conversions that I can remember off the top of my head from January:
