Those numbers look very good for Airbus. They almost delivered 500 planes, wow. But I do not think they will break the 500 barrier soon since production cuts, or not executing the plans to increase production, will keep that 500 number still a little bit out of reach. But maybe after this crisis is over?

I think it will be long after the crisis is over before deliveries hit a high mark again. Aircraft deliveries seem to lag economic recoveries by a number of years. But it's a great number and it's deliveries that generate the revenues for the company.

By the way, why is the difference between gross and net so big? Were these cancellations from prior years that Airbus is finally clearing off the books?

777 is lower than we expected, but it seems December was not a good month for anyone! No holiday shopping for jets this year.


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

65 of those cancelations were as a result of Skybus going bust.

The Alien .... errr ... the Grupo Marsans "firm" order never came in to the books.
It was supposed to be for 61a/c, incl. 4 A380's, 10 A359's and 5 A332's
