BOEING AIRLINER SALES JUMP BUT DELIVERIES LAG RIVAL AIRBUS
AppleMagazine|January 14, 2022
Boeing finished 2021 far behind European rival Airbus in deliveries of new aircraft, but sales bounced back after two dismal years caused by the 737 Max crashes and the pandemic.

Boeing said that it delivered 38 commercial planes in December and 340 for all of 2021, nearly double the total for 2020.

However, Airbus reported that it made 611 deliveries in 2021, topping Boeing for a third straight year. Boeing was hindered by production flaws that prevented shipments of its 787 Dreamliner for most of 2021.

Deliveries are bigger than bragging rights — they are an important source of cash for the companies because airlines typically pay a large portion of the purchase price when they take possession of a new plane.

DON'T COUNT THE BUTCHER OUT! BRETT WILKIN STILL HAS A WORLD OF POTENTIAL

Bodybuilding fans can be a fickle lot. Brett Wilkin turned pro in Classic and did his first two shows as a 212, hardly making an impact. But when he made his Open debut last summer at the Chicago Pro and came close to defeating Hunter Labrada, who went on that fall to place fourth at the Mr. Olympia, he was being praised to the heavens as being the next big thing. Update photos leading into the 2022 Arnold Classic only cemented that belief, with many feeling he would be the one to push eventual champion, Brandon Curry, the hardest. Alas, it was not meant to be. He failed to deliver on those lofty expectations, ultimately placing sixth out of nine men. In a flash, many labeled him yet another example of being "all hype," and decided he had no future in the sport. I spoke with Brett three weeks later about the Arnold, his new sponsor and a move from Colorado to Florida, and what he needs to do moving forward to ensure he is in contention for the win the next time he gets on stage - as well as when that will be.
