Boeing Plane Orders Flatline

Boeing today released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through April 8. There was no change in the past week.

To date this year, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 269 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • four orders for the 777 airliner
  • one 747 order
  • one 787 order

No new orders have been booked since Boeing last updated its order book a week ago. There is also still no sign in Boeing's official tally of the 20 new 777-9X airliners, six 777-300ERs, and 14 787-9 Dreamliners that Japan's ANA Holdings announced it was ordering a few weeks ago.

On the plus side, no new order cancellations have come in since last week, either. So after subtracting the 40 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, Boeing is left with 235 net orders booked to date -- flat against last week.
