Winging It Looks Two Years Back At A380 Sales Stagnation

What has occurred is that Boeing has stopped the bleeding at the "Big" end of the market with its 777X offering. Both the A380 and A-350-1000 are at a point in time where there are no answers for its sales dilemma.

The A350 Program Wikipedia recap: Since the time of the article link above Airbus has sold only a net 11 of the A350 wide bodies after announcing the A350-1000 in 2013.

Wikipedia chart sources below: 

Below, the chart indicates only 13, A380's have been booked since 2014.

The same head to head count showing both the 787 and 777X charted below for comparison.

Boeing has booked net 170 of its wide bodied 787 counting the years 2014 through 2016. Additionally, it has booked net 306 of the 777X slamming the Airbus Large end of the order book by a total of 476 Boeing wide bodies to Airbus net of only 24 wide bodies over the last two years. It is obvious Boeing has stopped Airbus aspirations at the end of the wide bodied market.
