How long before the A350 can get to comparative delivery rate and how much will the difference mean in terms new orders?
The latest information I have seen from Airbus is to have the A350 production rate at 7 deliveries per month by 2018. So that would be ~84 a year.
Airbus looks like they just might make their 30 per year delivery rate for the A380 and if they do, hopefully that means they will be able to increase it going forward.
A330 deliveries are 9 per month (108 per annum), I believe, but that rate will likely not be sustainable as orders start to fall.
Boeing continues to give guidance of 10 787 deliveries per month by 2013 and have hinted they may go higher. They will also be delivering already-assembled frames that complete their change incorporation so that will affect the delivery rate on a month-by-month basis. So Boeing could be north of 120 per year starting in 2013.
The 747 program is now at 2 per month (24 per year), but Boeing has given guidance that they may roll that rate back if orders remain very soft.
The 767 program I believe is now at 2 per month (24 per year) and Boeing is not currently planning any increases, though they could push it to 3 per month if demand warranted it.
