Re: Airbus A320neo Family Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

Fri Dec 27, 2019 9:58 am

Airbus is close to breaking the "100x A320 family deliveries in a single month" milestone for the first time this December.
According to Planespotters.net, they already delivered 79 members of the familly between December 1 and 26 (78 neo and 1 ceo for Delta).

Last December mark was 93 aircraft, 26 of which were delivered between the 27th and 31st. Same numbers this year would bring us to 105 deliveries for December 2019. BTW, they need 90 deliveries to improve their 2018 result (626 A320).

If anything defines the production difficulties this year, it must be this - the struggle to match, much less beat last year's figures.
In the last 4 years, production figures for the A320 series have been:-

2015 - 491
2016 - 545
2017 - 558
2018 - 626

which is 8% per annum compounded growth.

This year's figure should have been in excess of 670 to maintain the trend.
The orders are definitely there to support it.

There seems to have been delivered 616 A320s between January 1st and December 26th 2019 (compared to 607 last year)
https://aibfamily.flights/statistics/A3 ... 2019-12-27

The last 4 days of 2018 there was another 27 deliveries.
https://aibfamily.flights/statistics/A3 ... 2018-12-31

So ... we could expect maybe 645 A320 deliveries this year.

If Africa witnesses the quantum leap in the economic growth as it is expected to in the next couple of decades, and the rest of the world holds steady, I can foresee 1000 A320s(or its replacement) coming out every year in the next decade. Insane, isn't it?

It is just that the growth moved in jumps rather than smooth. I f you add a few years

2012 - 455
2013 - 493 8,4 % growth
2014 - 490 -0.6 % growth
2015 - 491 0.2 % growth
2016 - 545 11% growth
2017 - 558 2.4 % growth
2018 - 626 12.2 % growth
2019 - 614 including today (no deliveries yet today).

On a year with a big jump followed usually a year consolidating the jump. It is usually not a problem with the FALs, but rather supplyline and this year also outfitting the ACF versions (and pre FAL production of the A321AFC fuselage parts).

So reaching the same or slightly higher delivery rate after a big jump has "tradition" at Airbus.

Does that imply we are due a jump next year, I wonder?
Will be a good test of all the work we know that Airbus are putting into smoothing the production process.

700?

What happens to next year's deliveries is largely dependent on the two engine manufacturers increasing deliveries.

The whole year was driven by manufacturing issues in the XFW FAL. There were no stored gliders, but many frames stored for months with engines. There were ceos, neo, ACFs and non ACFs stored. So I see challenges at the moment only at Airbus itself.

A little nit-pick: They broke that barrier in December 2017 already with 105 A320 deliveries (58 ceo / 47 neo).

Which airline did Airbus deliver the largest number of A320Neo family aircrafts to, in the year 2019?
Or in other words, which was Airbus' largest customer in terms of deliveries of A320neo family for 2019?

Would love to see a breakup of the top receivers of this type in year, to see whose getting the most of the delivery slots/year.

A lot of P&W engines had to rebuild. So just having a picture of a frame with an engine, does not mean it was delivered with that engine. P&W did not rebuild all engines at the same time.
Airbus had the policy to get the new builds out first. The older frames go out one and one in between.
A few of the ceos were actually delivered, waiting for the owners to fly them out, mainly frames for China.
The problems are not in the FAL, but rather pre FAL production and outfitting. If the problem would have been the FAL, there would have been fewer frames standing around.

Airbus has, including today, delivered 620 frames this year. 6 more matches the 2018 record, but I expect more still being delivered. We ave seen quite a few frames having done there customer acceptance flights the last days.

That would be IndiGo, they have received 28 A320neo plus 9 A321neo this year, with 5 more A320neo and 12 A321neo due over the few weeks. Not sure if any of these will be delivered before year end.
