The two aerospace giants' order backlogs both shrunk in the first four months of 2019.
News & Analysis: Airbus
The Middle Eastern airline giant is paying the price for its reliance on the Airbus A380 jumbo jet.
Airbus' financial performance improved last quarter, but lingering production issues mean it won't be able to capitalize on the safety concerns surrounding the Boeing 737 MAX.
Notwithstanding the big scandal at Boeing, Airbus is the aircraft manufacturer that has racked up dozens of order cancellations this year.
But the recently announced deal for 300 aircraft may not be as significant as it seems at first glance.
Airbus has booked far more order cancellations than new orders since 2019 began.
How do you say "we're losing the space race" in French?
Airbus will stop building its four-engine jumbo jet in 2021 -- and it's good news for shareholders.
Boeing pulled in more orders than Airbus in 2018, and it got off to a better start in 2019, too.
Emirates may not go through with the order for 20 A380s it placed just a year ago.
