Boeing, for lack of a better word, is killing Airbus in the wide body jetliner market with 273 net order through July compared to Airbus’s negative 27, largely due to cancelled orders.

Incredibly, Boeing values its wide body plane market at roughly $2.5 trillion over the next 20 years!

Boeing set a record with 324 unadjusted orders in July, but Airbus claims to be storming back.

Airbus spokeswoman Maryanne Greczyn said on Friday, “The most important number is that 127 commitments. Once we firm those up, it will obviously alter the order roster significantly.”
