New Boeing Orders Almost Wiped Out by Cancellations

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through early November on Thursday.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked:

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

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, Boeing was left with 957 net orders booked to date.

Under the rubric "good news/bad news," Boeing added 26 new 737 orders from an unidentified customer last week... then promptly had all these new orders wiped out by an equivalent cancellation of 26 units of the 737. The company did manage to increase its 787 tally, however, by two new Dreamliner orders.

End result: Boeing's order book increased by a net of two new planes over the past week.

    It would be interesting to note Airbus real deal stats

    Recently EASA mandated that all A380 fuselage have crack inspections - not just wings anymore

    They still build good Airplanes, and doesn't look like they are going anywhere... for now.

    957 net orders? Sounds good to me. That's a number higher than deliveries, so it's a net add to the order book and the back log.
