July 31, 2017, © Leeham Co.: It’s time for our mid-year update of the Big Four airframe manufacturers and their production/delivery outlooks.
Our update is through June 30. Although Boeing provides weekly order updates, Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer only do so monthly.
Our update data relies on the Airfinance Journal Fleet Tracker.
Today we look at Bombardier and Embraer.
- Bombardier’s CSeries production skyline is said by the company to be sold out through 2019, but there are some “dicey” customers as early as next year.
- BBD’s big challenge comes in 2020, given the goal of producing 120 airplanes a year.
- The CRJ and Q400 lines continue to be a major challenge.
- Embraer’s production line looks nearly full in 2018, but it, too has some customer issues.
