Boeing’s official tally of 2007 orders hit 858 this week without the 24 orders announced Thursday by British Airways.

When those orders are signed and sealed, Boeing will have won 882 orders for the year.

On the company’s official order tally sheet this week, the company booked three new orders, one 737 Boeing Business Jet for an unnamed client and two unidentified airline 737s.

In other news of note, an unidentified customer cancelled two 747 orders and substituted 777s in their place.

One 787 order previously listed at unidentified was attributed to Sky Peace Limited. Sky Peace is an Asian transportation leasing firm. The 787 is a VIP model destined for an unidentified user.
