When the 5000th was delivered (an A330 for QF) in 2007 there was a banner on the airbus website which cycled through info about these and IIRC there was a picture of each but I'm not totally sure.

In that case probably they do the same this time around.

Approximately 4000 delivery in 10 years ....

Indeed congratulations to all parties involved. This number has been achieved so fast. Not that long ago we were reading about the 3.000th delivery from Airbus, and now they are at 6.000! Quite an achievement.  Wink

Congrats to Airbus!!!
and quite a nice comment from EK about the big birth :
"20% per seat cheaper (compared to what?777?), the most efficient, people still rushing to fly it..""

the plan is to build 2 a month this year.

A great achievement by Airbus - and hopefully many thousand more to come.

However, I can't help thinking that it puts the achievement of the 737 into perspective; we had the 6,000th delivery last year. When the first A300 was delivered, Boeing's 737 deliveries were around the 350 mark (the USAF T-43As, for example); in those 35 years since the first A300 (and Airbus) was delivered, over over 5,700 737s have been delivered ...

Quite a record!

Wow! That's absolutely true. I wonder how many 737's have been delivered since the firs A320 was delivered. I'm sure I read it around here, somewhere, can't seem to find it  Sad

But again, congrats to Airbus, huge achievement!  champagne   champagne

The first A320 was delivered to AF March 26, 1988. According to Boeing deliveries data on their website, they have delivered 4,741 737s since March 26, 1988 (data through December 2009, they've probably delivered a few more this month).

Approximately 4000 delivery in 10 years .

Wow -- that's more than one per DAY, including weekends!!

What are Boeing's total numbers in comparison? Must be close to that, if not higher...?

That is a *lot* of planes.

Will that sign on the outside of the aircraft stay for a while or is there a metal plate somewhere in the aircraft?.....a couple of years ago when boarding I saw a little metal plate on the door frame of a WN 737 that read that was the 5000th 737 built.

Vrigin Blue have a commemorative 737 I flew on last year celebrating the 50th 737 delivered to the airline.

Interesting that they chose "symbolic"aircraft: after all, the A340-300 has not sold as many as neither the A320 nor the A330-200 nor -300, yet two "landmarks" out of the six here are A340-300... And there is only one A320, whereas A320s are close to two thirds of Airbus' sales...
