Boeing Takes a Break for Thanksgiving

Boeing has just released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through late November. The report showed no significant changes since last week's report, in which Boeing had reported significant demand for its 777 aircraft, and for the new 787 Dreamliner, as well.

To date, the aerospace giant has still booked:

  • 941 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • 165 orders for the 787 Dreamliner
  • 96 for the 777 airliner
  • 10 747 orders.

After subtracting 161 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, and eight 777s, five 747s, and the single 787 order also canceled, Boeing was left with 1,037 net orders booked to date.

Boeing's summary of the significant changes in its order book this holiday week: "None."
