Boeing said it delivered a total of 17 airplanes to carriers in May, bringing the delivery total for the first five months of the year to 111 aircraft, the latest company data released on Tuesday shows.
In addition to the 11 737 MAX aircraft, Boeing delivered two 787 Dreamliners, a 747-8 to United Parcel Service, two 767s and a 777 to FedEx last month, and recorded 73 gross orders.
The gross orders were comprised of 61 737 MAX jets, including a fresh order of 34 from U.S. carrier Southwest Airlines Co (LUV.N), and five 787-9 Dreamliners and one 777 freighter for Germany’s Lufthansa. Unnamed buyers ordered six additional 777 freighters.
Norwegian Air and Mexican airline Aeromexico canceled 48 737 MAX orders in May.
Net of cancellations and conversions, Boeing booked 20 aircraft orders last month and added 73 orders to its backlog that had previously been removed due to adjustments for stricter accounting standards.
Gross orders for the first five months were 380 airplanes. Net orders after accounting adjustments were 177 aircraft for the same period, Boeing said.
Boeing said its official backlog grew to 4,121 aircraft orders in May, from 4,045 in April.
