Boeing: No New Plane Orders Placed in Past Week

Boeing today released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through Nov. 12. The report showed no significant changes since last week's report, in which Boeing had reported order improvements that were nearly negated by cancellations of orders previously placed.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked gross orders of:

  • 933 for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner.
  • 135 for the 787 Dreamliner.
  • 50 for the 777 airliner.
  • 10 for the 747.

After subtracting 157 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, and the eight 777s, five 747s, and the single 787 order also canceled, this leaves Boeing at 957 net orders booked to date.

Boeing did impart one piece of important news to investors in today's announcement, however. To wit, the company identified Southwest Airlines as the previously unidentified customer on an order for 20 of its single-aisle 737 airplanes, which order was received earlier in the year.
