Boeing logs first 787 order cancellation for 2013

Boeing added orders for 16 aircraft Thursday and recorded the first order cancellation for a 787 this year.

The 787 cancellation came from Travel Service, which finalized an order for three 737 MAX 8 aircraft on Wednesday. The Czech Republic-based carrier had announced plans to order the MAX earlier this summer at the Paris Air Show.

“Operating in a dynamic environment when our customers adjust their plans, we work with them to support their needs,” Marc Birtel, a Boeing spokesman, wrote in an email. “Travel Service has recently placed an order for the 737 MAX, reflecting their focus on the short-haul rather than long-haul market.”

Travel Service’s 787 order was placed in 2007.

With program delays and the global recession, Boeing received more cancellations for the 787 program than new orders three out of the past four years (2009, 2010 and 2012).

This year, despite the Dreamliner’s grounding this year, customers not only have stood by the 787 but also have stepped up to order the newest version, the 787-10.

Boeing has won 82 net orders for the 787 program in 2013 and 930 net orders since the program’s launch.

The jet maker also added an order for 13 737s from the U.S. Navy, according to Boeing’s website.
