yeah, thats a bit over-estimating the orders. My prediction is about roughly 100-115 at the most...give or take. As far as orders when the first delivery happens, I dont know what to think since orders can be changed or cancelled.

Boeing's prediction could actually be correct because there are several airlines that I know off are considering adding the B7E7 to replace their old 767's and A310's
1) Singapore Airlines
4) Air Lingus
If anyone else knows of other airlines considering the B7E7 then please add to the list

There's always a gap between 'firm' orders and 'options' (which are often not taken up, or converted to something else). Anyone know whether this '200' number includes 'options?' If so, it's hardly an impressive prediction. And you can be sure that if they (Boeing) don't hit 200 this year, the naysayers will be out in force.

Emirates Airlines also indicated they would be interested in the 7E7 to replace their A330-200 fleet from 2009. If Boeing can make good offers for SQ, EK and the Chinese airlines they might well reach 200 orders this year.

Local medias in Thailand reported that Boeing is trying to get 7E7 order from THAI to replace their A300 fleet. If this becomes a reality then we can expect 15-25 airframe order (their A300-600 fleet consists of 21 aircrafts).

I have this feeling that Boeing is going to have pretty substantial 7E7-3 orders from LH, SQ and TG for regional flights. It all comes down to this: the Airbus A330-200 is way too heavy a plane for regional routes.

Sounds like great news for Boeing. The 7E7 will almost certainly be a charm for Boeing. There are so many aircraft, 767s, A300s/A310s, even 757s I guess, to be replaced in the upcoming years.
It's a Boeing article
It's actually a Seattle Post article. You're just trying to make it look like the article is not credible, because you don't want to believe it's very realistic, do you Adria? I know why, because it means that Boeing may have a very high success rate with this new aircraft, and you don't want that. Because you are biased towards Airbus and against Boeing.
BTW, I've read over some of your previous posts and you don't seem to have a problem trusting Airbus' news and outlooks for their aircraft, so why do you at Boeing? Double standard, huh?

No, no, no! Don't you see?!? Adria believes that Boeing has paid off the Seattle P-I to ONLY write articles with a pro-Boeing slant, journalistic integrity be damned! After all, NOTHING like that happens in Europe!

There is one airline I can think of as well that could order the aircraft British Airways which has always been a big Boeing supporter they may order a few aircrafts to either help or replace there 767/757 fleet one of there or both
And I think airlines that may not want the A380 because of the unsureity of its success and its economics would probably be more drawn to the 7E7 so I don't thing the 200 orders is that far fetched.
