ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the aviation company Airbus SA. Airbus has some catching up to do if it wants to beat Boeing Co. in terms of orders for 2005. But entering the second half of the year, the European aircraft maker's new management faces more serious matters than merely winning bragging rights. Through midyear, Boeing is ahead in aircraft orders by more than 100, with a bit more than 400 received. Airbus says it will deliver the first A380 to Singapore Airlines in 2006. However, discussions between the airline and Airbus are ongoing, and depending on when the handover occurs, revenue-generating service might not commence until 2007.
