IranAir Receives First Delivery of Airbus Jet

"That doesn't mean we can't increase our production, and we will next year and the year after".

Airbus delivered a record number of planes past year despite engine and cabin production problems, even as new orders slumped for both the European manufacturer and its USA rival Boeing.

Both Airbus and Boeing however saw demand for new planes fall to their lowest total since 2010. But many airlines are now moving towards more fuel efficient planes.

Airbus announced Wednesday that it delivered 688 planes over the year, primarily in the single-aisle A320 family, compared with 635 in 2015.

The company shipped 49 A350s, one short of its target, versus just 12 in the first six months, after largely resolving delays at seat and interiors supplier Zodiac Aerospace SA, Fabrice Bregier, its chief operating officer and civil unit head, said in the briefing.

Kelly was reportedly making $10 million to $12 million a year at Fox, so she likely snagged a similar figure at NBC . The program will continue as " Tucker Carlson Tonight" and will broadcast live from FNC's Washington, D.C. bureau.

Last week, Boeing confirmed orders of 668 planes throughout the year, down 13 percent on 2015 when net orders reached 768.

Deliveries rebounded in December after some issues with engines and cabin equipment in the supply chain.

Between them, the big-two aircraft manufacturers achieved a slight rise in overall output previous year, to 1,436 aircraft, but their combined net orders declined by nearly a quarter.

In fact, Republican politicians in the U.S. Congress have pledged to block a separate deal between Boeing and Iran Air calling for delivery of fifty 737 Max 8s, fifteen 777-300ERs and fifteen 777-9s valued at $16.6 billion at list prices. While Boeing remains the world's No. 1 planemaker after delivering 748 jets, its backlog declined by 80 aircraft to 5,715. The company said it booked 320 jetliner orders in December.
