Airbus cruising to order and delivery wins over Boeing

Airbus has all but locked up the order and delivery crowns over the Boeing Co. for 2019, but the European manufacturer will need a record delivery month in December to hit its in-house goal. According to Airbus’ website, the company handed over 725 commercial aircraft to customers through November to leave it 135 deliveries short of its revised target for 2019. Airbus recorded a record month for deliveries last December, when it handed off 127 aircraft in the final month of 2018 to reach 800 deliveries on the year.
