Four analysts estimate that Boeing (BA) overtook Airbus in the delivery of planes last year for the first time since 2002, mainly due to the U.S. company finally ramping up production of the 787. The forecasts concurs with those from the companies, with Boeing predicting 600 deliveries and Airbus 780. Agency Partners' Nick Cunningham reckons that output will continue rising until 2015, after which it will fall.
