Airbus Vs. Boeing
Airbus delivered 140 aircraft to 48 customers in Q1 2022. However, it should be noted that Airbus was unable to deliver two Airbus A350-900s to Aeroflot due to international sanctions imposed on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine.
Airbus deliveries included: 58 x Airbus A321NEO, 49 x A320NEO, 14 x Airbus A350, 11 x Airbus A220, 6 x Airbus A330, 2 x Airbus A319.
Meanwhile, Boeing delivered a total of 95 aircraft in the first quarter of 2022. Boeing deliveries consisted of: 86 x Boeing 737, 5 x Boeing 767, 3 x Boeing 777 and 1 x Boeing 747.
Registered Airbus Vs. Boeing
In terms of orders, Airbus surpassed Boeing in Q1 2022. While Airbus won 253 gross orders, with a net total of 83 after cancellations, Boeing received only 167 aircraft orders. The Airbus order book included 88 x Airbus A320neo, 83 x A321neo, 72 x A220, 7 x A350F and 3 x A330.
However, the manufacturer recorded 63 cancellations for A321neo and 17 cancellations for A320neo. The European aircraft manufacturer also documented a cancellation of 83 Airbus A330 aircraft. This reduction came as a result of restructuring by one of its customers, AirAsia X. According to a Reuters report, AirAsia X canceled orders for 63 A330-900 and 10 x A321neo aircraft during its restructuring process.
In January 2022, Airbus also revoked two Airbus A350-1000 orders for Qatar Airways amid a dispute over finishing defects (peeling paint) of some Qatar Airways A350 aircraft. Airbus also reported cancellations for 50 Airbus A321NEO aircraft.
Boeing's orders consisted of: 134 x Boeing 737 MAX, 19 x Boeing 777F and 14 x Boeing 777X.
