Boeing Lands Another 777 Order (and 13 Other Orders)

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through June 3 on Thursday. It looks like Boeing may be gaining some (small) momentum in the large-planes race as it added one order for a 777, plus orders for 13 737 jets.

To date this year, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 439 gross orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • seven orders for the 777 airliner
  • one 747 order
  • one 787 order.

Compared to last week, Boeing's latest tally shows 14 new orders booked. True to form for the year, most of these orders were for Boeing's popular 737 regional airliner. Japan TransOcean Air ordered six of Boeing's smallest birds, with an "unidentified customer(s)" signing on for seven more.

Meanwhile, an unidentified business jet / VIP customer(s) placed an order for a single 777, the third such order Boeing has received in the past two weeks.

No new cancellations were reported for the week. As a result, Boeing's 448 gross orders placed for planes to date, minus the 54 cancellations last reported, results in a net of 394 planes to Boeing's order book. Through May, Boeing had delivered 271 planes.
