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.

I know you are waiting as patiently as possible. 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.
Quoting PM (Reply 4): Unless I've missed something that's the first 787 order since April!
As far as I have seen you are correct. As NYC777 has said, this would put the 787 orders over 900 (903 I believe).
