2020 continues to show itself as, arguably, the worst year in commercial aviation in living memory. The Airbus numbers are, shall we say, sobering.
Here’s our model to demonstrate that.
- No orders since May, when there was one for one airplane.
- Deliveries are trickling out. Page 2 shows how that looks – the drop off is staggering. We are in air show month when we might have expected lots of industry news. But that was another time, long ago.
- Airbus has managed (it seems) to hold on to their A320neo backlog.
- Page 4 shows that 5 aircraft were YTD delivered to lessors with no named operator.
