AIRLINERS.NET CREW FORUM MODERATOR
The much awaited 2013 Paris Air Show is upon us and we have decided it would be appropriate to run two main threads on the major LOI / MOU / Order announcements. This thread is for Boeing announcements.
Additionally, we realise that many Military Contracts may be announced. We ask that those be posted for discussion in our Military Aviation & Space Forum. Though we understand there will be split orders, having the official threads should make it a lot easier to track orders for each OEM and make for a good reference for the future of the site.
In relation to Regional and other orders such as ATR, Bombardier, Embraer, Sukhoi, Mitsubishi and COMAC etc or any major new developments of new frames or further news of R&D in existing projects please feel free to go ahead and post a thread as normal, or in an existing thread.
Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us.

Boeing is being reported as accumulating at least 100 orders for the -10 for a total of $30 Billion. If this does not include SQ, then I believe its the 10 options for BA, 30 options for QR, and ___ for UA.
My other guesses are Eva Air, and option conversions from AC.
It does not say 'at least' 30 orders it says 'up to'. ALC is assumed to be one of the customers and QR specifically said they will not be the launch customer. Though they could be a follow up customer.

I love that CEO from Qatar airlines: "We are extremely disappointed with Boeing and quite unhappy over the 787, so we will likely firm up our orders for 30 more 787s in the near future." Speaking out of both sides of one's mouth is an art, and this guy is a master!

Normally I would agree AAB has the ability to speak out of both sides of the mouth... this comes across as crass negotiation. Maybe it worked this time, but next?!?

I'm hearing rumors of 'more than a hundred.' Let's see as my sources, when they share this late, are not always the best indicator. (They're much better with longer lead times and the ability to 'relax and filter the information.')
Societies that achieve a critical mass of ideas achieve self sustaining growth; others stagnate.

Doesn't appear to be a firm order according to Boeing's release:
LE BOURGET, France, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Tokyo-based Skymark Airlines (Skymark) today announced the airline's intent to select the Boeing 737 MAX as its next generation single aisle aircraft of choice, making it Japan's first airline to do so. The announcement came on the first day of the 2013 Paris Air Show. Boeing will work closely with Skymark to finalize a firm order in the coming months. http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2703
"intent to select" doesn't really even sound like a commitment at this point.
