Quoting md2012 (Reply 6): Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't this be about 35.4% of the market share. If it is then the MAX is still far behind the NEO.
Yes it is. I was dividing 799 into 1456, not 2255.
And yes, the MAX is trailing the A320neo by a fair bit. Boeing claims they have 1200 orders and commitments compared to the 1611 orders and MoUs the A320 has, so that shrinks the gap a bit. The A320neo has also been on sale for an additional 231 days, giving Airbus an average of 2.17 firm orders per day compared to 1.81 for Boeing per http://www.pdxlight.com/neomax.htm.

One would expect that the earlier availability by 18 - 24 months would be a (much) bigger factor in the difference. Taking that into consideration, the 737 MAX seems to be doing pretty well against the "superior" NEO offering.
