If one does disregard all orders in 2011, it is 2513 MAX vs. 2188 NEO - more than 10% ahead since launch.
NEO orders placed before launch are:-
Air Asia - 200
GoAir - 72
Indigo - 150
LAN - 20
SAS - 30
transasia - 6
GECAS - 60
total - 538
i.e. 2 906 NEO sales since the MAX was launched vs 2663 MAX sales.
that gives the NEO 52% of the market since the MAX launched.

And yet Boeing, at least for the moment, is planning a higher 737MAX monthly production rate than Airbus is planning an A320neo monthly production rate
for me though, the logic is a bit "back-to-front" here. Boeing's plans make sense given the size of the backlogs.
I think we've seen in the last few months Airbus have started to move for the bigger numbers, but their (relative) reticence to post huge increases whilst the CEO/NEO transition goes on is at odds with the backlog.
I don't buy that they think their backlog is more fragile than the MAX's.

Great to see some rational assessment in an otherwise irrational thread.
Thanks very much for that.
I work very hard to offer an objective input into this thread.
And you've just labelled it irrational.
is that because you just don't like the messages my posts offer?
You could try telling me how I could be more objective, perhaps ...
|Quoting Karadion (Reply 69):|
So Airbus has a lead of half of a percent over Boeing in terms of deliveries and orders together.
I think that's about right to be honest.......
But one of these players was established in the marketplace, and one didn't exist at the starting point.
That's a huge consideration to factor in IMO
I suspect if you time-slice the market you'll find that the A320 lagged to start with as it had to fight its way into the market.
It has clearly steadily gained traction since.
In the last 5 years it has outsold the 737 by 700 frames.... (5036 vs 4316)
Do you reckon this all sits easily with the team at Boeing?
