    Check out Boeing's all time order sheet (caution 56k)
    If you look at Airbus history a little closer it is really impressive. Airbus wasn't the Compan it is today. They started with the A300 and had lots of problems to solve. But they managed to stay alive and have grown.

      Congrats to Airbus Industrie Corp. for reaching the 4000th mark.. for another 4000 more..


      Ps. Im not even gonna comment why some of you guys cant be happy about the news ? Thats a success, they have reached it. Who cares about they're behind with couple of thousands of aircraft? Im just glad too read the news article. So thanks for posting that.

          Well I should certainly hope so, for Boeing's sake, considering the 737 was launched nearly a decade before the first Airbus model even materialised...

            Congratulations to Airbus, I look forward to seeing them continue to succeed.

            Your avatars aren't impressive either. Again, you've conveniently failed to take time into the equation which only serves to distort the success of Airbus with respect to Boeing. You clearly have no idea what you're bleating on about.

They should have a parade and a big marching band and another 4 hour long ceremony with the electronic wizard guy like they had with the A380 rollout. I can't stand myself over this! OMG, as a Boeing fan, this makes me cower in my boots and want to pack up and buy an Airbus baseball cap! Holy Smoke! WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW! ~

            The 737 is at something like 5,200. I am not impressed.
            Trust you to say something stupid like this. Has it ever entered your mind that Airbus hasn't been around nearly as long as Boeing? Of course not, not much ever seems to. As per your companion above, you clearly have no idea what you're bleating on about.

              It would have been great if that 4000th planbe had been the 1st A380 delivered! Anyway, well done Airbus! They have come a long way in quite a short time. I am a die-hard Boeing fan, but this is more than good news for Airbus, but good news for the industry. Just to be silly, and in no way to stsrt an A vs B war, how many airplanes has Boeing delivered?
              Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

                The current Boeing company has delivered 16,733 commercial jet aircraft. WAY TO GO BOEING!

                That averages out to about 335 orders per year for Boeing over the last 50 years as opposed to Airbus' average of around 138 per year for the last 29!
                THE VOICE OF REASON HAS SPOKEN!
                Pop quiz: Which US president said, "Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade, and much of his nation's wealth, not on providing for the Iraqi people, but on developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them."
                George W. Bush is not correct. It was Bill Clinton in his 1998 State of the Union speech. HMMMMMMMMM.

                  All this Pro Boeing shit has to stop. By all means have your pro Boeing rants if you can back them up.
                  If you want to ramble on about how great the 737 family is and how many orders is has got go on and on by all means but
                  Here are the facts.

                  The Boeing 737 family was first ordered in 1965.
                  The Airbus A320 family was first ordered in 1984.

                  The Boeing 737 family has approx 5965 orders.
                  The Airbus A320 family has approx 3640 orders.

                  Therefore

                  The Boeing 737 family has on average 149.125 orders per year.
                  The Airbus A320 family has on average 173.333 orders per year.

                  Delivery Wise

                  The Boeing 737 family entered service in 1968.
                  The Airbus A320 family entered service in 1988.

                  The Boeing 737 family has 4908 airframes delivered.
                  The Airbus A320 family has 2522 airframes delivered.

                  So therefore

                  The Boeing 737 family has on average delivered 132.649 airframes per year.
                  The Airbus A320 family has on average delivered 148.353 airframes per year.

                  So go on as much as you want because at the end of the day, Boeings achievement with the 737 isnít that remarkable. At Airbusí current rate by the time they have been delivering A320 family a/c for as long as the 737 has been going they would have 5489 a/c delivered, and around 6413 orders.

                  If you are going to compare the A320 and 737 families, donít just say the 737 has more orders and delivers and therefore is better, compare how long its been in service and how many orders/deliveries to come to a conclusion.

                    I think we've already moved on from the 737 numbers... See the total orders/deliveries numbers

                    I think we should talk about 777/767 vs 330/40

                    I wonder if Boeing will celebrate its 16,000th delivery in 2-3 years, maybe the 5,000th 737 (very likely), or 600th 777 (less likely).... No doubt we'll be notified when those above events happen by at least 2 people now

                      Ill compare other a/c at another time, it's just certain members were boasting about the 737 family, so i had to put it into perspective.

                              By the time the first A380 is delivered there will be 8,000 Airbuses in the sky.

                                I'm willing to bet that there will be much more than 8,000 Airbus in the sky before Boeing will be able to build an aircraft the size of the A380.
