In one of the best weeks in a disappointed sales year, Boeing won orders for 23 new jets last week, the company reported.

Those new orders, five 777s from Ethiopian Airlines, seven 777s from Turkish Airlines and 11 737s from unidentified customers, raises Boeing’s new total for the year to 40 net orders.

The company has booked orders for 129 new airliners, but has lost 89 prior orders to cancellations. Most of those cancellations, 73, were for 787 Dreamliners, a plane already two years late with its first delivery.
