Banner Week Sees Boeing's Order Book Double in Size
Boeing released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through mid-February on Thursday.
To date, the aerospace giant has booked:
- 82 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
- four orders for the 777 airliner
- one 747 order
- one 787 order
After subtracting 12 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, Boeing is left with 76 net orders booked to date -- twice the company's tally at last report.
Since that last report one week ago, Boeing has received its first 747 order of the year, from Cargolux Airlines. It has also received 49 new orders for 737s -- 40 of which came from SunExpress Airlines, and nine more coming from what Boeing only identified as "unidentified customer(s)."
