In this article, it's stated that: "So far in the first quarter of 2015, it does not look like the year Boeing will beat Airbus in the sales and airlines delivery race. This might not spell good news for the U.S. aircraft manufacturer which plays a dominant role in the aircraft industry". Conflating an order with a sale is naive, in this business because a plane is not paid for until it's delivered and Airbus recently booked orders for delivery in 2025! And, Boeing will certainly deliver more planes than Airbus this year; Boeing delivered almost a 100 more planes than Airbus did in 2014 and there's no chance that Airbus can increase production by that amount, this year (they are only projecting 15 A350 deliveries this year).

The "sales and airlines delivery races" indicate opposite trends! Airbus has claimed a larger backlog of orders than Boeing for more than a decade now. But, Boeing has delivered more planes each year since 2012, and as I stated above, will do so again this year. This should be telling to anyone who's comparing the two companies, namely that the order numbers are not a good metric for comparing Boeing and Airbus. Airbus has made it a top priority to win the yearly orders race; they are addicted to the kind of shallow press coverage displayed in this article, based on those order numbers. Last year, Boeing had a substantial lead all year long but then, after Boeing announced their order totals, Airbus went to work and came up with 400 orders for the one month of December, to pull out the win. Airbus has claimed the yearly order
