Airbus invited members of the media from around the world to provide an update on the background of the A350, new market developments, and how they believe their new aircraft stacks up to the competition.

The day started off with some market share statistics. As of today, the 2013 net market share leans towards airbus 55% to Boeing’s 45%. Over the past 11 out of 15 years, Airbus has been the leader in net orders. Currently, total backlogs stand at 5,330 for Airbus, and 4,787 for Boeing.

The A350 program presently has 756 firm orders with 38 customers. Airbus predicts that over the next 20 years ending in 2032, there will be a need for 6,800 twin-aisle aircraft, including the A330 and A350 XWB. Airbus has also seen a major shift between 2007 and 2013 from airlines preferring 250 seat aircraft to 300 seat aircraft; moving to the A350, A330, and 787.
