According to Tinseth, the forecast takes into consideration Boeing's belief that there isn't enough demand for Airbus to deliver the rest of its A380s on order.
Also baked into Boeing's market forecast, according to Tinseth, is the belief that there won't be enough demand for Airbus to deliver more than the 100 A380 superjumbos still on order.
"We don't believe Airbus will deliver the rest of their backlog on A380s," said Randy Tinseth, Boeing's vice president of marketing.
Airbus did not immediately respond to a request to for a comment about Tinseth's prediction.
Fortunately for Boeing, it has a ready replacement on deck.
"The big airplane of the future for the aviation industry is going to be the Boeing 777-9," said Tinseth, a veteran aviation executive. "It carries 400 passengers. It flies further than the 747 and the A380 does today."
