What's interesting about this week was not what was booked but cancellations:

737 calcellations went from 10 to 4
Appearance of 3 787 (yes, 787) cancellations. I wonder who?

There are still the 20 777 out there and a bunch of 737.


Sir, don't you think we should turn on the runway lights?" "No, that's just what there expecting us to do!"

Wasn't there a discussion here that the 20 777s going to QR?

Quoting NYC777 (Thread starter):

This is most likely ATA's order where they cancelled the -800 and maybe now they have decide to opt for some -700's?

The 787 is a total mystery... but I wouldn't be surprised if an airline is going to trade up to the 777 so they free up some 787 slots for another airline, like SQ?

Could it be Primaris or one of the other vapor carriers that we all knew would never see the light of day in a 787?

I think it's no surprise that we will see some cancellations of B787 orders, as some of the orders where of doubtful quality anyway (Panorama Blue, First Choice, ......).

But I believe BLue Panorama and First Choice finalized their orders. What changed? And if they were going to cancel them why only 3 and not all of them (the only airline that has 3 787s on order is Xiaman Airlines)?

Primaris order was never firmed up. Still is just a MOU or LOI... they placed money down for slots until they firm it up.

Primaris was never firmed, so there would be no cancellation if they have evaporated. the -3 means firmed orders are not going to be taken up.

Blue Pan or first choice would be my first thoughts though....

The 3 787 are CO from Last year. Notice the it says 13 for the 787 order this year. This means that it is a zero net gain on 787 orders.

Part of me wonders if this is an accounting thing regarding CO's 13 orders + 10 from before = 20. Only thing is, CO only officially had 7 orders hit the books, but if this new order is at a different price, there might be some kind of accounting thing going on here, where the 3 CO orders will be adjusted to having been booked last year and then canceled this year with the new order?

Just a thought.

That would be weir. Last year CO firmed 7 of the 10 that they initially ordered. Just a few weeks ago the ordered nother ten and we saw on Boeing's order book a posting for 13 (firming 3 from last years order + 10 from this year). Now why would CO take back 3? It just doesn't make any sense.

But that is assuming that CO firmed up all 10 787s from last year as well as firming 13 787s this year. I don't think that has happened.

not necessarily. as I said, sometimes for accounting, you have to firm up something just to cancel it and rebook it.

I'm not saying that's what happened, but it is a possibility. I've seen that kind of thing in other businesses, and it might also account for the 737 changes too, since CO ordered both this year and had orders already on the books for both...

Perhaps CO firmed 7 of their 10 last year. They then told Boeing they'd like 10 more, if they could get a better price on those ten plus the three they haven't yet firmed. Boeing said yes, CO cancelled the three under the "old" price and bought them (again), now under the "new price" along with ten more under the "new" price.

Possible?

Possible. In the end we'll all find out. It's relatively minor and if it is a true cancellation by an airline then it opens up three early (hopefully) slots that can be used for a bigticket carrier (EK, QR?).

that's my theory if it is CO. and those old orders would actually go into the books last year if they wanted them to, depending on what the contract dates said.

but it might be someone else. Nobody ordered 3 only so it's not a customer completely backing out.

Perhaps NW pairing back their order to 15 under BK?

Boeing hasn't updated the 787 model orders and deliveries page, and they still list only 7 there from last year. I don't see why they would cancel 3 CO orders with adding another 3 to CO's orders.

Xiamen Airlines only has 3 ordered, out of the 60 ordered by China.

yeah. didn't count them, because the customer is China, and Xiamen was just allotted 3 of them per edict from on high.

China wouldn't cancel three. They would just reallocate them, and possibly even in a sensible fashion...  Wink

It is Xiamen Airlines which converted their 3 787s to 6 737s. They had previously ordered 21 737-700/800. 11 delivered so far.

Here's my theory:

CO originally ordered 10 787-800s in 2004 for delivery begining in 2009, however they only firmed up 7 of those original 10.

Fast forward to June 2006 and CO announces another 10 787s, the second batch is scheduled for delivery begining in 2011 (I believe?). However the new order is actually for 13, making CO's total firm order 20 787s.

I have a feeling that another huge customer wanted a certain amount of early 2009 787 delivery spots, to accomodate the customer Boeing went to CO whom they have an excellent relationship with and asked them to give up three early delivery spots in exchange a substantial discount on the next batch of 13 787s and the 26 additional 737NGs.

Boeing cancelled the three 2009 787s for CO, and they worked out a new agreement for an additional 13 787s to be delivered in 2011.

28 PanAm_DC10 : The question now is. Who get's the 3 x 788 delivery slots? Regards, PanAm_DC10
29 Atmx2000 : But because Boeing books its Chinese orders without cooking the books, they have to show the cancellation. Were they scheduled to get aircraft before
