I don't think any of us would have expected figures like this even six months ago. And right across the board too, every one of five models is selling; including 43 747s. Congratulations to all of them.

Is the 735 still being produced? I heard that some 735s have already been scrapped(not due to write offs).
Thanks

Congradulations to Boeing for a great year. Selling 733 airliners so far this year is a great milestone for them.

Is this a record sales year for them?

They got 229 firm orders for the 787 and I didn't realize the 748F orders were firmed up!. Finally VNs and China Eastern's orders for the 787 are there.

Word out from the orders web site is that CX is going for the 773ER and that Boeing will be making more order announcements tomorrow. That's just a rumor so don't hold me to it.

Can someone help me understand something here? NCA had an order for one 744F prior to the launching of the 748F. On the press release announcing the launch of the 748/748F, NCA was stated to have ordered 8 firm + 6 options. Today's update shows 13 747s (types not broken down) associated with NCA. I am unable to account for 4 additional 747 freighters. Any help would be most appreciated.

I think the best for Boeing and many, many, if not most, aviation fans worldwide is the fact having their greatest product ever recovering from near-death with quite an impressive number of orders (so far this year the 747 has claimed orders for 3 1/2 years production at the current pace!).


As for Nippon Cargo: Didn´t they order 3 744Fs earlier this year, added 1 just a few weeks ago and now ordered the 747-8F?

A tremendous year for Boeing....is 800 orders within reach? With 26 777 orders anticipated from EK, that makes the total 759 orders. Can they make it to 800??

From the Boeing Orders Website, it looks like NCA ordered 3 744F on Jan 28, 2004 and added a 744F on April 28, 2005.

I would have said that the 737 was Boeing's greatest ever product...

The numbers in blue (if you are talking about the weekly update page) indicate changes in tally from the previous week's update. Those in black mean the numbers are unchanged from the previous week.

BTW, a minor nit - while the numbers for the NCA count have been marked in blue, the operator name "Nippon Cargo Airlines" is still in black.

That's because the operator isn't new since last week, only the ordered total is  Smile

No, it was replaced in production by the 736.

Depends on how you define it. The 737 is their best selling product ever, the 747 probably the greatest technological achievement.

I pretty sure this would be the first time AC had order on this site, because I am pretty sure Boeing didn't have a orders website 16 years ago.  

Quoting Jwenting (Reply 18):

I don't know how you would rank achievement when comparing different technology generations, because it is certain the 777 has greater technology than the 747. It might be easier to rank technological advancement for a product, and the 747 certainly was a vast leap. On the other hand the 707 was no small potatoes advance either.

Have those 26 unidentified 787 orders always been there? If not, wonder who they're for.

Way to go Boeing! Two more decent orders and they're over 800, that's amazing!

From the Boeing Orders Website, it looks like NCA ordered 3 744F on Jan 28, 2004 and added a 744F on April 28, 2005.

NCA still had a further 4 744Fs to firm up to take their total to 8. When they announced the 747-8 order they re-iterated that they would still go ahead with a total of 8 744F orders, of which 4 are the ones you list. So looking at todays total the numbers for NCA are;

5 x 744F
8 x 748F

That gives you the total of 13 and the 3 from 2004 are the balance of the 16. Though we've not really seen a press release from Boeing the Engine manufacturer announced the order for the extra 4 744Fs earlier this year.

Thanks for the clarification PanAm_DC10. I was looking for announcements from NCA and Boeing for a mention of this order. Never thought to look at the engine manufacturer.
