Order Book Shenanigans

Its more confusing than square dancing in Virginia, USA. The Boeing order book took some hits and had some misses. Remember the main thing, is to keep the main thing, the main thing. I always wanted to call that at a square dance before we doce-do and away we go! Lesson from the Boeing order page for those with tri-focals and a magnifying glass in hand. "Here we go", Peter Pan Style.

1. 737's don't tell any stories about who, what, when, and where's just three to "Deep Pockets McGee".
2. 747, Played the song "Another one Bit The Dust" and "another one" Why, we don't really know why, but sometimes they just "Bite the Dust".

3. Hey, I thought the 767 bit the dust last year, I forgot FedEx. Oh well it fits them and that's all it matters for four more.

4.  Not FedEx's four but two big Gecas 777 to go. Order up!
5. 787 @ 15 Whaaaat! Unnamed, unidentified and unknown ordered?
6. Air Berlin has no chops at this time, Cancelled 15 787, Whaaaat! Book em Dano
7. Conspiracy theories are flooding the internet at this time on the 0 net change on the 787 book.
8. Almost Forgot, 20 each of the 737 were dropped as third quarters financials hit some fired execs.
9. 1000 ways to "Leave Your Lover", but don't hop on the Bus, Gus.
