Congratulations. Boeing is a very good innovative company. Your great success with B-747 (the first jumbo jet) is followed by your star performer, B-777 (the first largest two engine plane} and now the B-787 (the first fiber glass/plastic plane). These three planes are great air-transport vehicles. Long live Boeing Company.

The story says that 990 out of 1009 net orders are for the 737.
This leaves 19 frames for the 747, 777 and 787 combined. This doesn't sound like a too impressive figure to me.
