Boeing Loses Four 737 Orders, Gains Back Twice as Many

Boeing released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through the first eight-plus months of 2013 on Thursday.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 771 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • 132 orders for the 787 Dreamliner
  • 44 for the 777 airliner
  • five 747 orders

From this total, Boeing subtracted 104 737s, eight 777s, all five 747s, but just a single 787, for customer cancellations, resulting in a net of 834 commercial airplanes ordered year to date.


Boeing highlighted two significant changes in the order book since last week's update, namely, that it lost four 737 orders due to cancellation, but then added back twice as many -- eight new 737 orders -- placed by Spanish carrier Air Europa.
