Well, nice orders for both Airbus and Boeing. More A380s and options (who said nobody takes Airbus options?) than many predicted.
And far far less the others did. As Forbes pointed out above, this should have been a crown jewel moment, but loosing the 767 replacement market to the 787 and not committing to replace all of their 744s makes this a positive moment for a program that otherwise is in trouble.
Way to go Airbus... Now just get the 300 remaining orders you need to break even.
