End of third quarter

As the third quarter of the year came to an end, here’s where things stand on the orders and deliveries front year-to-date.


Boeing: 563

Airbus: 462

Net Orders

Boeing: 380

Airbus: 380

It’s interesting to note that Airbus finally took 82 orders from defunct Kingfisher Airlines off its books last month.

Some September highlights for Boeing included 25 net orders and 72 deliveries— and the 787 program celebrating its 5th anniversary since first delivery.


As always, the final quarter of the year is a very busy time in our factories in Everett, Renton and North Charleston. We remain committed to getting airplanes into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible.

Sales in Progress indicates an exciting close for 2016. Wide Body placements will surge to the forefront starting with Qatar's recent order. Congratulations with orders so far to date.

Go Boeing go !

George M (Long Island, NY):

Congratulations on the Qatar Airlines order. It's encouraging to see 787 sales picking up again, especially in the form of a repeat order for a demanding customer like Qatar.

Andrew Boydston (Boise ID USA):

Please recap the last 30 days for the 787 as I have become somewhat confused over the 787/777 segment of the market as the order tide is lifting.

Firm 787 sales i.e. Qatar China Southern
Intent or firmed 787 Sales i.e Pakistan
Other LOI or Firm 787 orders not mentioned above

So much news and so little clarity.

Thank you in advance for some clarity on this issue. Pending sales not included of course.

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

Good deliveries for Boeing and great orders! congrats on being number one!
