    Airbus compares the A350-1000 to the Boeing 777X

    The day started off with some market share statistics. As of today, the 2013 net market share leans towards airbus 55% to Boeing’s 45%. Over the past 11 out of 15 years, Airbus has been the leader in net orders. Currently, total backlogs stand at 5,330 for Airbus, and 4,787 for Boeing.
    The A350 program presently has 756 firm orders with 38 customers. Airbus predicts that over the next 20 years ending in 2032, there will be a need for 6,800 twin-aisle aircraft, including the A330 and A350 XWB. Airbus has also seen a major shift between 2007 and 2013 from airlines preferring 250 seat aircraft to 300 seat aircraft; moving to the A350, A330, and 787.
    Airbus has a saying when it comes to the A350 XWB,Keep it simple.” Airbus has not overcomplicated their systems where it is not necessary, and they are not afraid to look directly at the competition when saying that. Specifically mentioned was the upcoming Boeing 777X series, and how Airbus believes Boeing is playing catch-up to the A350. “The success of the -900 forced Boeing to launch the 787-10,” t the troubles with the 787 has led to increased interest in the A350.
