Bloomberg.com writes that EADS‘ subsidiary Airbus passed Boeing in both deliveries and orders in 2008. For both companies though 2008 was a bad year compared to 2007. EADS orders fell over forty percent. Boeing has suffered in delays to the 787 Dreamliner program that has affected sales, stock and overall company performance. Airbus seems to be past the A380 issues, although the super aircraft will never sell in large quantities, compared to the A350 or A320.
