The Boeing 747 passenger airliner, while nominally still offered for sale, is in reality dead.
The Airbus A380 limps along in what may prove to be a vain hope that airport congestion will spur sales next decade.
The next level down, however, doesn’t appear very strong.
Sales of the Airbus A350-1000 stalled at 200 or less for years.
Sales of the Boeing 777X likewise stalled following program launch in 2013-2014. Although the 777X has twice as many orders as the A350-1000, fully 72% of them come from three customers, one of which is in serious financial trouble and may cancel or defer some or all its orders.
Orders for the largest Large Twin-Aisle aircraft lag the Small and Medium Twin-Aisles.
Big 3 in the Middle East are major customers for the 777X, A350-1000. Iran Air also buyer of -1000.
While Big Twin languishes, small- and medium-twins remain in demand.
