As far as I can see, it looks like-
50 x A321neo
27 x A350-1000
65 x 777X
23 x 787-9
Interestingly, Boeing only lists QR as having ordered 5 737MAX (all "delivered" as in sat in WA for Air Italy). I wonder if the rest of their highly-publicised order for 50 has been cancelled or never firmed (or are they from lessors?)
I guess they'll take up some A321s, Qatar and Lufthansa nixed the A321 LR at the launch in Paris last year.

Then the other airlines didn't agree, voted with their wallets & Boeing saw it's NMA business case drained. For hub carriers like Qatar keeping open slots / routes is crucial. Mark my words: he will 180 on his A321 delay in no time. Probably his tactic for getting prices down.
