The manufacturer also reported 30 gross new aircraft orders Tuesday, including 13 737 MAX aircraft, and reported 26 net new orders, as four 737 MAXs have been booked, including two for China’s Okay Airways.

Boeing delivered its first 787s since May 2021 in August: a 787-9 to Lufthansa and a 787-10 to KLM. The two Dreamliners for American Airlines that were delivered were not yet counted as delivered because the manufacturer is performing some pre-scheduled customizations after delivery.

Boeing’s gross orders totaled 338 so far this year.
