Boeing have announced a sale of a 787 BBJ To PrivatAir today and an interesting piece of information is disclosed in the press release;

Since launching the 787 program in 2004, Boeing has secured 841 orders from 55 customers, including a record-breaking 369 orders in 2007.

http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/...s/prnewswire/AQTH02617012008-1.htm

That said at the end of 2007 Boeing had booked firm 817 firm orders

with a total of 817 orders

http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2008/q1/080103d_nr.html

No new 787 orders have been booked this year. It is not Gulf Air as that is an LoI / MoU for 16 x 787-8s. Nor can it be Thai Airways as that is a lease that they will tender for 14 frames.

So 2 new operators announced with those 2 carriers and an add on from PrivatAir. According to Boeings 2008 O&D spreadsheet they have not booked a 787 sale this year.

Given the Boeing Press Releases it appears that we can expect a new order to appear on their update today for 23 to 24 frames to get to the 841 number.

The question is which carrier has ordered them?

I am hoping for LH !!! The number could be right for them and they have postponed their decision for around 2 years now. It is about time that they will announce their decision.



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Slight correction: Air Pacific has firmed 3 B787-9 options, which would point towards a 20-21 frame B787 order. No guess at the moment who this could be...

Those orders were booked in 2007 and per the press release booked as Undisclosed so the number remains 23-24

SEATTLE, Jan. 14, 2008 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] and Air Pacific today announced that the Fiji-based airline has ordered three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in addition to a 2006 order for five of the high-technology jetliners.

The airplanes were added to the Boeing Orders and Deliveries Web site in 2007, attributed to an unidentified customer.

Seems highly unlikely. (A reckless statement which will guarantee that it turns out to be true!)

First they said end of 2007, later they said it will be in 2008. AF will place an order by the end of the year.

Could very well just be someone holding a bunch of options exercising them now to secure delivery positions. Per Wiki, AC holds 23, NH 50, BA 18, NW 50, QF 20 and QR 30.

Well perhaps some of those 23-24 could be the Gulf Air order for 16 787-8 plus the one PrivatAir order. Well if the recent trends in the 787 program continues then Boeing can achieve 1000 sales by power on!!! A little joke there.

A little bit more color to this discussion:

Boeing added 2 more customers it seems as they had 53 787 customers at the end of 2007 and now it 55 so we can assume that the 23 or so planes we're talking about is for two new customers.
