Well Boeing broke 800 787 orders before year end and well over 350 787 orders in 2007.

A huge congrats to them and a very successful sales campaign in 2007!

Congratulations to all involved!!!  Smile

What an amazing decision it was for Boeing to pursue the Dreamliner. It just goes to show that many airlines concur with Boeing on the future look of aviation.

The 787 has now beaten the 737NG as the Boeing family with most sales before EIS.

Over 800 before EIS ... unbelievable!

At least Boeing right about point-to-point.
But I believe the Hub-version and the A380 will be successfull as well.

Another thing is that because of its huge size, the B787 sized market had to be a success no matter what ... as long as the aircraft provides improvements like the B787/A350 does over the previous generation

Over 800 orders before first flight. It's looking like over 1000 orders before first delivery.

With all the record setting EK order and all the other hype surrounding the A350 a lot of people forgot just how great a year the 787 had.

Congrats to Boeing!

Being honest, I never thought any airliner (a widebody no less) would be able to break that record - A. or B.

What hype was that? Just like someone to drag EK and the A35XWB into a Boeing orders discussion.

Congrats to Boeing and VN on making the milestone. Boeing can easily hit 1,000 787 orders before EIS.

I agree.
There has been more "flashing" of everything lately when Airbus got orders, especially for the A350.
In the mean time the B787 has "quietly" been racking up orders.
The only flaw in the B787 joy is the delay ... and the ghost of further delays, which seem kind of likely.

817 Firm if you count DAE's firm order. 183 additional firm order in the next 10 months, seems feasible. Specially if AA or DL get the order bug.

what other 787/350 campaigns will be decided through Q3 2008?


Another question, did VS firm up there additional 8x787 options? I thought they announced intentions to exercise those options?

I'm afraid that the A380 will never make a dime of return on investment.  no   no

That is too simplistic. The 787 was a huge gamble on the part of Boeing. The A350xwb is as well for Airbus. Airbus tried to come to market with a beefed up A330. It didn't work. Now after 3 tries they are pushing forward with the A350XWB. One thing is for sure in the commercial aircraft industry... there are no guaranteed successes.
