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.
No new cancellations were reported for the week, either. As a result, Boeing's 448 gross orders placed for planes to date, minus the 54 cancellations last reported, results in a net gain of 394 planes to Boeing's order book.
Last year at this time, Boeing had notched 505 gross orders and 435 net orders.
In all of 2013, Boeing booked a total of 1,531 gross new plane orders, which after cancellations resulted in a net gain of 1,355 -- the second-largest number of net new orders received in a single year, in company history.
Here near the half-year mark for 2014, the company's performance on gross and net orders suggest Boeing may be falling short of that near-record mark achieved last year. With the year nearly 50% gone, Boeing has recorded only about 29% as many gross and net plane orders in 2014 as it received in all of 2013.
Last year at this time, Boeing had received about 32% of its yearly orders.
