The 2012 target of 30 orders for its A380 is slipping away from Airbus. So far this year, the airframer has only received an order for four of the jumbos from Transaero.
In total, Airbus has received 382 net orders for new aircraft so far in 2012, lagging behind Boeing, which has notched up 939 orders (including GOL's order for 60 737 MAX) since the beginning of the year.
Boeing will for the first time in ten six years take top rank for the most number of new orders.
Airbus has been in the lead for deliveries since 2002.
