Boeing Adds 17 Planes to Its Order Book

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) has just released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through early December. The company revealed that it has received 17 new orders for its best-selling 737 airliner, but didn't say from whom.

To date this year, the aerospace giant has booked:

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

After subtracting 161 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, along with eight 777s, five 747s, and the single 787 order also canceled, this left Boeing with 1,054 net orders booked to date.

Boeing suffered no order cancellations at all over the past week. To the contrary, it booked the aforementioned 17 orders for 737s, listing the buyer(s) as "unidentified." At the same time, Boeing revealed that eight of its 777 orders recorded earlier this year came from Air China Cargo.
