Boeing has lost another six 787 Dreamliner orders, the company revealed today in the weekly update to its order website. The customer was not identified.
That brings to a round 100 the total number of Dreamliner cancellations after more than two years of delays and the downturn in the aviation business since 2008. The new jet still has a big order backlog of 860 jets.
The canceled order is worth about $1 billion at list prices, though market data from airplane valuation firm Avitas pegs the actual value after standard discounts at about $670 million.
Boeing also announced today a new order for two 777s, again without identifying the customer. This new order is worth about $300 million after discounts.
The cancellation and the new order together reduce total Boeing sales so far this year to 108 jets.
