Boeing Loses Some Plane Orders, Gains Far More

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through the end of March on Thursday. Once again, all the action was in 737 single-aisle airplanes, as Boeing's bigger birds simply refused to sell.

To date, 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.

This latest tally shows orders for 86 of the company's 737s were received over the past week, including 61 planes ordered by Air Canada, and 25 more placed by an "unidentified customer(s)." Still no sign yet, though, 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 couple of weeks ago.

Boeing suffered 28 cancellations of orders for single-aisle 737s over the past week, bringing the cancellation tally to 40 planes. Subtracted from the company's 275 gross orders booked across all aircraft models, this leaves net new orders at 235.

    I think I´m gonna hold out on the speculation until Delta finishes it´s review of it´s fleet upgrade. They are looking at 50 widebodies. I think that will be the last major mass order for a little while so it will have major impact.
