Third Quarter 2013 Orders Detail (all box data from Boeing except SWAG)
The outlook for the other wide bodies will be a hit and miss pace probably reaching out for a couple more 747-8's, and up to 15 more 787's. Fourth Quarter 737's should have one or two more surprises at the end of the year. There maybe another 100 orders for that type. In all, the order book could increase by 300 + by the end of the year for Boeing for all types.
