Firm orders stay static, but up to 15 new orders may soon be confirmed.

Boeing (BA 2.01%) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through the first six weeks of 2014 on Thursday. For the second week in a row, the report showed that Boeing has made no new sales -- not one plane sold so far in the month of February.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 33 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • four orders for the 777 airliner
  • and a single order for a 787 Dreamliner.

After subtracting the three 737 order cancellations reported on previously, this leaves Boeing with a total of 35 net orders booked year-to-date.

Despite the disappointing lack of change to Boeing's order book, however, new orders are on the way. Yesterday, the company confirmed that at the ongoing Singapore Airshow it signed a commitment from Bangkok's Nok Air to order eight Next-Generation 737-800s and seven 737 MAX 8s.

If the order is ultimately completed, it will double the size of Nok's Boeing fleet -- currently comprising 14 Boeing Next-Generation 737s. It will also mean $1.45 billion in new sales for Boeing, at list prices, which customers don't always pay.
