07:20 EDTEADSYAirbus expected to be overtaken by Boeing orders, WSJ reports
Tomorrow, Airbus (EADSY) reports 2012 airplane sales and deliveries, but its biggest plane will show only a few orders on the list, a sign of continued headwinds facing the A380 superjumbo jetliner, reports the Wall Street Journal.

If Boeing wins bragging rights, it would be the first time in five years it outsold Airbus, and the first time in a decade that it delivered more planes than its European competitor. Reference Link
