Based on current negotiations and signed purchase agreements which aren't orders but the bulk of which Boeing expects to be firmed up into orders, Boeing expects to have 200 firm 7E7 orders by yearend. They also project that there could be up to 500 orders by Entry Into Service. These seem like somewhat high targets, to me, but are said to be plausible, given that interest in the 7E7 is the highest BCA has ever seen for any of their models.
