In the first six months of 2011 Airbus and Boeing delivered 97 widebodies. This is up on last year when 90 were delivered over the same period but down on 2009 (102).

Airbus lead with 56 deliveries (58%) compared to Boeing's 41 (42%).

In terms of type:

A330 = 46
777 = 32
A380 = 10
767 = 9

One fascinating statistic is that the A330-300 and 777-300ER are exactly neck-and-neck on 25 apiece.

Nine 767s in six months is also noteworthy.  Wow!

In terms of engines:

GE = 90 (42%)
RR = 88 (41%)
PW = 24 (11%)
EA = 12 (6%)

Every Boeing delivered so far this year has GE.

The second half of the year should see the first 747-8s and 787s delivered. Will Airbus and Boeing end the year pretty even?

For what it's worth, over the past five years Airbus and Boeing have outdelivered each other every alternate year - Airbus in even years and Boeing in odd. So this year it's Boeing's turn.

And some wonder why Pratt is working with Airbus so much...

Well done by RR.

With the 788 deliveries due to finally happen at the end of the year, RR could pull into the widebody lead!   
At least until the GEnX deliveries start...

I don't have comparable 1st Half numbers but in annual terms 42.1% is GE's lowest share since I started keeping records (5 1/2 years ago) and 41.1% is RR's best.

With the larger share of the 787 (so far!    ) and with exclusivity on the 747, GE should assume a strong lead over the next year or two. But it will be interesting to see what happens when the A350 comes on line.

Also, to be fair, the RR numbers include (and always will) the T900 for the A380 whereas GE's share of the EA GP7200 doesn't appear in their total.

Actually, for the first five months of the year RR were in the lead but GE had a very strong June. Particularly interesting is that the Trent 700 was outdelivering the GE90 until June!

While I'm here, two more snippets.

Emirates took delivery of just one plane in the first six months of 2011 - a 777-300ER.

Turkish Airlines took delivery of NINE! Five x 777-300ER, 3 x A330-300, 1 x A330F. That means that TK have added nineteen widebodies in the past eighteen months: 10 x 77W, 7 x A333 and 2 x A33F.

Who's the juggernaut now?!

   They have a reputation to uphold.  

IIRC, they should only have 77Ws and A388s delivered in 2011 and 2012. Do you know when EK is scheduled to receive their first A350?

Wow... From wikipedia:" In 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 THY carried 17 million, 19.7 million, 22.5 million, 25.1 million and 29 million passengers with total revenues of US $2.23, US $3.0, US $4.5, US $4 and US $5.6 billion, respectively."

When I looked at their route map I noticed room for Turkish Airlines to grow and fast:

Where? India.

One area with Major issues: Austalia (too far for good economics with today's aircraft).

I'd be very curious to know why their route network lacks IAH and SFO... Or are those 'growth opportunities' just waiting on new aircraft?   I wonder if Turkish airlines will order the A380? Not this year... but say in 2013...   
I do see issues with land area for growth at IST. Not short term, but eventually. (A classy kind of problem to have.)
