By Simon Sharwood, 20 Oct 2016

Airbus has celebrated the delivery of its 10,000th plane, an A350-900 acquired by Singapore Airlines.

The first Airbus sale, an A300B2, rolled down the runway in 1974. Since then the company has shipped 816 A300/310, 7,256 A320 series, 1,715 wide-body A330/340/350 models and 124 of its double-decker A380 behemoths. The company also has 6,749 orders on the books.

The aerosexuals among you may find this spreadsheet amusing, as it details sales and orders by airlines, offering a long, long, list of carriers from all over the world to ponder. ®
