To date, the aerospace giant has booked:
- 534 "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 543 gross orders placed for planes to date, minus the 54 cancellations last reported, results in a net gain of 489 planes to Boeing's order book.
Last year, 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.
Now near the half-year mark for 2014, though, the company's performance on gross and net orders both suggest that Boeing is falling short of that near-record mark achieved last year. With the year nearly 50% gone, Boeing has recorded only about 35% as many gross, and 36% as many net, plane orders in 2014 as it received in all of 2013.
