It seems Gulf Air has signed a deal to order eight additional 787s from Boeing. This is an exercise of eight options they placed with their order earlier this year. Here is some good news for Boeing today.

If this is true then Boeing has broken the 900 firm order barrier.

They must really love this plane. They're at the tail-end of the current delivery schedule as-is, and now they may see even more delays, and yet they keep on adding.

Good for them, I say. Big grin

I agree. Plus they ordered this plane shortly after a plan to go to an all Airbus fleet.

Unless I've missed something that's the first 787 order since April!

I wish they'd just choose an engine now!

I know you are waiting as patiently as possible. Smile If they have announced their orders for the A330 engines, then I would expect that manufacturer to earn the 787 order. ( likely the ever popular Trent family.) I believe there has been several orders for Trents on 787s and A330s within the same airline.

As far as I have seen you are correct. As NYC777 has said, this would put the 787 orders over 900 (903 I believe).

But they haven't.  Sad

Not as many as I'd have liked.

Air China
Avianca
Monarch

And that's about it.  Sad

Boeing press release clarifies what was signed was an LoI. Not yet a firm order (as of today).

I had thought there were more. But with the massive influx of A330 orders as of late, I believe there will be more.

Well then, I guess we can look forward to these being firmed, and Boeing surpassing the 900 order mark.

Yes., and I agree the number PM mentioned (903) is correct when this order is included.
