Airbus suffered a raft of additional order cancellations in February, with 31 orders disappearing, of which almost half affected the new A350XWB twin-widebody.
Overall, Airbus reports that 18 A320s were canceled last month, one A330-200 and the 12 A350-900s. The company booked eight new orders in February, including four A380s from Skymark.
Deliveries in the first two months reached 73 units.
Struggling DAE Aerospace was responsible for the 12 A350 cancellations as well as the A320 cancellations.
Cancellations were more prominent than orders at Boeing as well. It recorded 34 cancellations for the 737 against 33 orders, for a net loss of one airplane.
It also saw four 787s canceled, but elsewhere in its widebody fleet, the news is better. The 777 has picked up 19 orders, including two from TAM last week and eight from unidentified customers. And LAN Airlines’ order of three 767s has boosted that line to 52 undelivered aircraft.
