UPDATE 1-Airbus lags Boeing on orders, leads on output

* Airbus delivered 417 aircraft in Jan-Oct

* Airbus delivered 15 A380s in Jan-Oct

PARIS, Nov 8 (BestGrowthStock) – Airbus (EAD.PA: ) sold 42 planes in
October, the European planemaker said on Monday, pushing 2010
orders above 400 but leaving sales volumes behind Boeing (BA.N: ).

Airbus leads its arch-rival in the number of planes
delivered this year, which have a direct impact on 2010 revenue,
but lags in the number of orders taken for future
years.

Planemakers are paid when aircraft are delivered, which in
the case of larger planes can mean a gap of several years from
the date at which they were sold.

EADS subsidiary Airbus said it had sold a total of 421
aircraft in the first 10 months of the year. Net sales stood at
369 aircraft after accounting for 52 cancellations. The number
of cancelled orders was unchanged from the previous month.

Between Jan. 1 and Nov. 2, Boeing took 553 orders and
received 73 plane cancellations for mainly wide-body jets,
leaving a total of 480 net orders booked so far in 2010.
According to a monthly statement, Airbus delivered 37
aircraft including one A380 superjumbo in October, bringing
total deliveries since the start of the year to 417 aircraft and
the number of A380 deliveries over the same period to 15.

Boeing delivered 386 aircraft in the first 10 months of the
year, according to its website.
