Boeing customer codes are two characters in length (two letters, two numbers, letter and a number, number and a letter). Boeing doesn't use three characters for their codes, as for model number it is for example 737-7-- with the customer code being the last two places in the model.

Quoting NYC777 (Reply 2):
Actually these are the customer codes that Boeing uses internally, i.e. SIA = Singapore Airlines, AAL = American Airlines.
Then you should have specified that in your opening post, as for the majority of us here, when someone asks about Boeing Codes, they're asking for the TWO CHARACTER code, not the THREE CHARACTER code that Boeing uses INTERNALLY!

Boeing has the following codes :
Model series , contains the Boeing customer code, except in the 787 series.
Examples : 747-8R7F = 747-8F series, with Boeing customer code R7 = Cargolux.
777-306 = 777-300 series, with Boeing customer code 06 = KLM
787-9 = indicates only the model series, no customer code.
The Boeing customer code ( 2 letter and/or number - combination) identifies the original customer, who placed the final order. When the aircraft is transferred to another customer the code stays the same.
