Quoting Glom (Reply 1): Narrowbodies are boring. They should sell some widebodies so we have more to talk about. Why do they never think of our feelings?
Interesting commentary. In the middle of January 2006, Euro narrowbodies were all the rage according to our friends from the eastern side of Lake Atlantica. The large number of narrowbodies that were "sold" over there were touted as evidence of a dominant product. Now we hear that this is unimportant when the numbers from the western side of the lake are high. Fascinating indeed.

Also interesting is that Boeing now has sold more than 500 planes this year already! Without any Farnborough orders (although many of the orders to be announced next week might already be included in the 152 Unidentified orders)
They appear under the "changes" line on the O&D spreadsheet. Prior to Xiamen converting their 3 x 787 to 6 x 737 there were 10 737 cancellations listed as "changes". After the conversion 6 were taken from that line which were the 6 new frames for Xiamen.
Boeing's policy is that if an order is placed and cancelled (or converted to another model) in the same year they update it under "changes".
