Strong month for widebodies

October will go down as a strong month for our widebody airplanes. We booked 77 total net orders during the month—72 of them being twin-aisle orders.

Qatar Airways order for 30 787-9s and 10 777-300ERs led the way, followed by a UPS order for 14 747-8 Freighters.

On the deliveries side, we saw 54 airplanes turned over to our customers.


For the year, our net order total now stands at 457 airplanes. And we’ve delivered a total of 617 airplanes.


Airbus has now released its numbers. They have 395 net orders through the end of October and 516 deliveries.
