At the start of the year, Boeing delivered almost twice as many commercial aircraft as its European rival Airbus.
A total of 38 machines found their way to customers in the first month of the year, as reported by the German online portal Aero. The world's largest aircraft manufacturer Airbus had only handed over 20 machines to its customers. Boeing meanwhile brought in orders for 55 new machines, but also had to accept 39 cancellations. The US group has been struggling with expensive problems with several types of aircraft for years. In 2019 he had already lost the position of the world's largest aircraft manufacturer to Airbus. Despite some recovery, Boeing delivered just 480 aircraft last year, lagging far behind Airbus, which delivered 661 net despite supply chain bottlenecks and cut destinations.
