With Boeing's orders announcement today, 777 sales for the year stand at 125 net, second best on record. With six weeks to go in 2007, will the 153 net sales recorded in 2005 be beaten?

2005 - 153
2007 - 125
2000 - 116
1995 - 101

While obviously I'm a Boeing 777 kool-aider  bigthumbsup , unless all of the B777 orders are firmed up (and some last minute orders), I just don't see how it beat 2005's numbers... Sad

Regardless, 125(+) orders is nothing to scoff at.  Wow!

Pretty good when some keep saying that the 777 is yesterday's aircraft. Obviously the airlines look at it differently.

I doubt it, as I can't see too many orders being booked. With the DAE order booked, it can go to 135 orders, putting it at only 18 less, but at the same time, we have 26 UFO 777s, and my belief is that most 777 orders for the rest of the year will just be identifications of UFOs, as is the case with the 2 additional 77Ws KLM confirmed today. Though no doubt 2007 will at least be the second best year for the 777, and won't be beaten in the future.

Statistically, with over two dozen orders left to go in order to make it the best year ever, it doesn't look likely. That's over 20% more orders needed in the next six weeks than what's been recorded in the prior 46 weeks.

Of course, who would have thought Boeing would be sitting on their third record-breaking sales year in a row? So anything is possible.

I imagine at this point Boeing isn't going to chase records so while they could likely close some deals if they were willing to sweeten the pot, they will not.

However, over the next few years, we might just see a 150+ 777 order year. As the A350 starts to fill it's backlog and Boeing defines it's own 777 replacement, airlines will look to the 777 for their interim lift needs just as they now look to the A330 to tide them over while they wait for their 787s.
