Who made all the 777 order cancellations?

According to Boeing's site,
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/...optReportType=AnnOrd&pageid=m15521

In 2010, there were 30 cancellations for the 777. In 2009, there were 11 cancellations.

It seems these orders were subtracted from the 2007 and 2008 totals.

Any idea who made these 41 cancellations?

By my count, that is only 35 of them. That leaves another 6 that were canceled by someone.

I never knew of all of those Continental cancellations. Why were they all one or two at a time?

If you look at the dates of all the CO B-77E cancelations you will see it was all during the global economic downfall in 2009 and 2010 when airline travel was falling. It was before their 2011 merger with UA. If you look at the CO/UA fleet today, they have some 20 B-77As and 55 B-77Es. PMCO had 22 B-77Es.

Quoting kaitak744 (Thread starter):
In 2009, there were 11 cancellations.

Adding to Stitch's list, in Aug 2009 EgyptAir converted 2 777s to 737s.

They were converted to 737NG orders. So as CO saw their fleet needs change during the GFC, as KC135TopBoom notes, they converted orders.

Do airlines pay some sort of fee for cancelling orders?

Actual damages or fees would vary from sales contract to sales contract, though I believe one could reasonably expect that an outright cancellation on the part of the customer with no fault on the part of the manufacturer would result in the forfeit of the original deposit plus any progress payments made to date.

Legally, yes the customer would lose the original deposit. If you take a deposit on your car or your house, if the person backs out you don't blink and eye about keeping the money--you're never going to see them again.Since both B and AB know they are most likely going to be trying to sell that customer airplanes in the future I'm not sure that they ever go that far. Back when USAir switched from 737's to A320's there was a sizeable order for more 737's that was cancelled but I don't think B kept the deposit--they hoped to do more business with USAir in the future--probablly should have kept the $$$.
