Boeing has delivered 306 jetliners so far, including 17 787s. Boeing is playing catch-up with those deliveries because of the problems with the 787's battery earlier this year. Boeing is aiming to deliver 60 of those planes this year.

Airbus has delivered 295 civilian planes this year. It delivered more of its smaller A320 family of planes than the comparable Boeing jets. Airbus handed over 233 of its A320 family of planes, compared to Boeing's deliveries of 218 of its 737s.

Chicago-based Boeing Co. and Europe-based Airbus are the main two makers of large commercial airliners. Sales of most of their planes have been speeding up, although they've been disappointed by slower-than-expected sales of their largest planes.
