Airbus deliveries outstrip Boeing

Boeing is pinning its hopes on the 7E7 jet
Boeing delivered fewer jets in 2003 than European rival Airbus, the first year this has happened.
The American company delivered 281 jets in 2003, and Airbus sent its 300th plane, to Singapore Airlines, just before Christmas.

Official figures from Airbus, 80% owned by EADS and 20% by BAE Systems, are due on 15 January.

Shares in Boeing, the world's largest aerospace company, closed down 14 cents at $41.93 on New York's Stock Exchange

Just above 300 aircraft delivered by Airbus in 2003.
Well done ! but 300 is quite far away from the announced 395 aircraft to be delivered in 2003 at the time of A380 launch.

They have to be extremely careful not to burn too much cash this year.

Congrats to Airbus.
