But There's A Lot Of Time Left
We're still over a year away from the next presidential election
in the United States... but that hasn't stopped leading candidates
from touting the number of voters they've swayed to their
campaigns. It is with similar logic that Boeing announced Thursday
the company has a healthy lead over rival Airbus, for orders
garnered during the first three months of 2007.
Reuters reports Boeing raked in 189 orders through the end of
March, compared to 134 for the European planemaker. Boeing received
a 119-order surge in March -- 12 more than Boeing was able to take
in during March of 2006.
So far, Boeing has also sold more jets in 2007 than throughout
the first three months of 2006. At the end of March 2006, Boeing
had earned 176 jet orders; the company went on to post a record
1,044 net orders for 2006.
No one is saying -- at least publicly -- Boeing will repeat last
year's impressive performance. In the past, Airbus has waited to
announce large orders during major airshows, such as the Paris Air
Show coming up in June.
And despite efforts by Boeing to speed up production, Airbus
still claimed more deliveries for the first three months of the
year, compared to Boeing. Airbus delivered 115 planes through
March; Boeing, 106.
