The final numbers from Airbus and Boeing are in, and Boeing recorded the most firm aircraft orders at the Paris Air Show while Airbus had the lead in terms of total aircraft orders and order commitments.
Boeing said on Thursday that it had 154 firm orders worth $20.2 billion at list prices, while Airbus said it had 124 firm orders worth $16.3 billion at list.
Airbus said with a combination of firm orders and purchase commitments, its total was 421 aircraft valued at $57 billion.
That topped Boeing, which said its total orders and commitments were 331 aircraft worth $50.2 billion.
The show, wrote Stern Agree CRT analyst Peter Arment in a note on Thursday, “saw better-than-expected orders, especially with BA (Boeing).”
