Boeing sees uptick in airplane orders as travel picks up


(AP) – Boeing is reporting a pickup in orders for commercial airplanes.

The company said Tuesday that last month it booked 196 orders while taking 156 cancellations for its 737 family of jets.

That’s a net gain of 40 orders. Southwest Airlines provided most of the upside for Boeing, with a previously announced order for 100 Max jets.

The biggest setback for Boeing came from Turkish Airlines, which canceled orders for 50 Max planes and replaced some of them with options.

Boeing orders have slumped over the past two years because of the long grounding of all 737 Max jets and the pandemic.
