Boeing might finally top Airbus this yearon December 28, 2012 @ 8:00 am (Updated: 9:49 am - 12/28/12 )
Boeing might do something this year that it hasn't done in a decade: beat rival Airbus on deliveries.
Boeing might just reclaim the title of number one airplane-maker this year. With just a few days to go, The Seattle Times reports Boeing is on pace to beat its rival Airbus on the number of airplanes delivered and ordered this year.
Boeing expects to deliver 585 commercial planes this year, slightly above Airbus. Heading into the final weeks of the year, Boeing had already received more than 1,100 orders.
Boeing also added 5,000 jobs in Washington this year to create its largest workforce in the state since 1999 with nearly 87,000 workers here.
