There was an often-repeated statistic not too long that said Airbus’ A321neo was outselling the MAX 9 five to one. Well, that number has contracted. Airbus’s single-aisle MoM advantage shrinks every month. The MOM subject is something we focus on a lot.
Using our daily delivery tracker, we offer the following chart. Back in early 2021, yes, Airbus was close to 6:1 ahead. But as Renton restarted deliveries and airlines selected the MAX 9, the ratio dropped to the current level (through 7/18/23) of 3.5:1.
