737s are ordered by GECAS, and also by an unidentified customer or customers.

Boeing ( BA -1.92% ) released its latest report on airplane orders received -- and canceled -- through March 4 on Thursday.

To date, the aerospace giant has booked:

  • 111 "gross" orders for various flavors of its 737 regional airliner
  • four orders for the 777 airliner
  • one 747 order
  • one 787 order.

No new order cancellations have come in since last week. So after subtracting the 12 orders for single-aisle 737s lost to cancellation so far this year (which Boeing reported on earlier), Boeing is left with 105 net orders booked to date -- 13 more than last week.

All of the new plane orders received were for variants of Boeing's 737 -- five being received from General Electric's aircraft leasing arm, GECAS, and the remaining eight coming from an unidentified customer(s).

Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
