Airbus passes Boeing as King of the Sky

Boeing reported final orders and deliveries for 2019 on Tuesday. Orders for the year dropped 74% to 243, deliveries dropped 53% to 380. Airbus deliveries were up 8% to 863 with orders up 2% to 768.

Although the competition to date has been tight, with the crashes and subsequent controversy over the 737 Max, Airbus has taken a clear lead. And Boeing isn’t out of the woods…. the 737 Max is still not cleared to fly and once it is who’s going to want to fly on it?
