On Thursday, Boeing (NYSE:BA) released its first report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- in 2014. Covering the first two weeks of this New Year, it shows Boeing off to a respectable start with two separate buyers placing orders for 10 of its single-aisle 737 airliners.

With no cancellations yet recorded, the aerospace giant's tally for the New Year, therefore, stands at simply 10 gross -- and also 10 net -- new orders for its 737... and nothing more.

Local customer Alaska Airlines (NYSE:ALK) accounted for two of Boeing's 737s, while foreign buyer Air Algerie placed an order four times as large, for eight 737s.
