      The 737 record is remarkable, since the line has been in service since over 40 years now!

          if it wasn't for the LH order for the 731s the program would have not been started, and production nearly ended on the early 70s due to low orders, but now, nearly 6000 planes later... strong seller, i wonder if airlines will buy it if they install the p&w GTF as they are designing the 737rs, lol

          yes i am a boeing fan, and i know thats a airbus, haha

              Yes indeed - such humble beginnings, but then again, can one really compare the original 737s with the 737s of today? The planes are so very different. There are times when I kinda think that they are so different that they could have been given a new designation (such as 797) but then again - Boeing will cross that bridge when they come to it!

                      The QF 787 order confirms the fears that QF might have been dissappointed with the 787's size and capacity and might be leaning to a possible A350 order. The sad part is that with Boeing wanting to safeguard the 777s, and the 787-10 not being discussed, many airlines are defaulting into the A350. I love 777s, and yes - it may be difficult to do the redesigns for the 787-10, but it's either that or loose out. They already lost EK, can they afford to loose other major orders?

                        QF ordered 65 in Dec 2005, and has outstanding options and purchase rights for 115 787's.

                        Disappointed with the 787 and order so many? The 20 on the books for 2007 are options being converted.

                        I think not Sir.

                            Congrats Boeing! Looking at the rest of the news article it looks as if Boeing has made a lot of milestones this year. Keep up the good work Boeing!
