European plane maker Airbus won less than half as many aircraft orders as Boeing (BA +1.3%) in the first 9 months of the year as its U.S. arch-rival benefited from a surge in demand for its new single-aisle model. Airbus sold 437 planes from January to September, compared with 962 for BA over the same period. After cancellations, it outsold Airbus by 879 to 382. BA also outpaced Airbus in terms of deliveries, with 436 planes delivered versus 405 for Airbus.
