Not bad, but the article isn't all-encompassing.

Boeing sold another 30 737s to Avolon, not to mention the 150-plane order to United (which I suppose didn't really take place at Farnborough).

In short, Boeing crushed Airbus at this show. Last year, it was the opposite.

The article was written after day 2 of the air show if you look at the dateline. It could only have reported up until that point. At the end of the show, the total was $55 billion.
