Boeing and Airbus Book Record Orders
Friday, January 20, 2006
Boeing announced that it had booked orders for a record 1,002 jetliners in 2005, finally beating Airbus in a race the European company owned since 2000.
Airbus Chief Executive Gustav Humbert is expected to report later this week that the company also had a record year for orders, even if its total didn't quite match Boeing -- and that it delivered more jetliners than Boeing for the third year in a row. Boeing delivered 290 planes in 2005. Officials at Airbus said they expected 2005 deliveries to total 370.
