Anyway, Boeing just released their April 2012 deliveries, which came in at 51 aircrafts. Compared to 37 a year ago. In addition to 3 787s and 2 747-8i's, the most rare one was probably the first 777-200ER in 18 months
It is striking how deliveries are so skewed towards the 738/A320 size of the narrow body families.
Quoting someone83 (Reply 3): As the major -700 customer of course it as a great effect when they switched to -800, but the trend is also the same for the A319, although not as dramatic as with the -700.
I'm sure WN/FL switching to the 738 has much to do with it. It still is dramatic seeing 90% of the 737s going out the door the 738. While the A320 is "only" 78% of the A320 deliveries.
I suspect with the MAX/NEO the ratio will skew towards the largest of the type (A321/739).
I was under the impression that the 739ER production should be ramping up. Does anyone have a 2013 projection? Thanks in advance,
