    Boeing Loses Orders Lead to Airbus After 2008 Strike (Update3)

    By Susanna Ray

    Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co., hurt by an eight-week strike, posted a 15 percent decline in deliveries last year and lost its lead in orders to Airbus SAS, the only larger commercial-plane maker.

    The global recession snapped three record years of demand with net orders falling to 662 from 1,413 in 2007. The decline in deliveries places Chicago-based Boeing behind Airbus in shipments for the sixth straight year.

    Boeing and Airbus had racked up record orders starting in 2005 for new aircraft that use less fuel, creating backlogs that would take more than seven years to build. Demand slowed in 2008 as the recession forced a cutback in air travel. Airbus, which hasn’t yet reported December figures, won orders for 756 jets in the year’s first 11 months, two-thirds of the intake for the year-earlier period, and delivered 437 planes.

    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9
