Boeing orders continue piling up

China Eastern Airlines says it is ordering 30 single aisle aircraft from Boeing Co.

The price of those 737s is $1.94 billion at list prices in 2005 when the airline secured options on those aircraft.

The airline said it will begin taking delivery of those planes in 2011.

The China Eastern order is not yet included in Boeing’s weekly order book update which reports the company has recorded orders for a total of 61 aircraft through Tuesday.

Eighteen of those orders are new in the last week. One order was for an additional 737 from Southwest Airlines, Boeing’s biggest 737 customer. The other 17 aircraft, all 737s, were sold to customers not yet identified by Boeing.
