Boeing Books 71 New Plane Orders in 7 Days

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through mid-March 2014 on Thursday.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 182 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • Four orders for the 777 airliner
  • One 747 order
  • One 787 order

No new order cancellations have come in since last week. So after subtracting the (still) 12 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year, Boeing is left with 176 net orders booked to date -- up from 105 last week.

All 71 of Boeing's new plane orders were for 737 regional airliners of various configurations. No specific buyers were revealed, with Boeing classifying all of the new orders as attributable to "unidentified customer(s)."

    Cool. So with the single 747 order, I am assuming that this is not the passenger version.

    That's right Tyeward. This early in the year, you can actually figure out pretty easily which planes are going to which customers from the order book page:

    And yes, the 747 is going to Cargolux -- so it's a freighter.

    I don't what the purpose of this story is but I worked for Boeing from 1973 until 2005 and they have always built a top notch airplane and there is nothing wrong with any model flying!
