Today, Reuters released an article covering some comments from Boeing India's Dinesh Keskar. He specifically discusses Boeing deliveries to India in the next 5 years, as well as the lateness of the 787.

I looked at news releases on the Boeing web site and found nothing about new 787 orders. Might be too soon for an announcement though. Would be nice to see more orders, reflecting perhaps a new found confidence the program is doing better about getting back on track.

Quoting WestWing (Reply 3): Interestingly, I do remember that orders stayed stuck at 896 for a very long time last year but I do not remember 892 as a total on the way up.
That's what got me curious. My first impression was that it was bad reporting, and the journalist had gotten the number post 1 cancellation, but not all three. However, I can't make it work going backwards. And like you, I don't remember them at a point last year going up of being at 892.
