Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, Q3 2020

According to Leeham Airbus' backlog for the A320neo adjusted for ASC 606 stands at about 5.700 unfilled orders as far as they are able to assess.
It compares to Boeings Max backlog of 3.550 planes. Of those are about 450 already built, so about 3.100 left to build.

You didn’t tell us when an ultrafan will EIS. But I can bet you it won’t be this decade. Secondly as we’ve already established, Airbus is already looking for ways to reduce their costs on the 350.

Boeing down to 90, down a whopping 27 percent today, at this writing.
That is down 80 percent from the all time high a year ago.
Last time it was at 90 was around May 2013.

This is nothing else than an unbelievable spectacular collapse.
