Boeing booked firm orders for 13 commercial aircraft from six customers in November, valued at approximately $1.7 billion at list prices.

Boeing’s biggest November order* was placed by an unidentified customer Nov. 7 for two 787-9s, valued at $529 million. Polish charter carrier Enter Air ordered four 737 MAXs (variant unspecified) Nov. 17, valued at approximately $440 million. The remaining four customers were all unidentified. One placed an order Nov. 15 for three 737-800s, valued at $288 million. Another customer placed an order Nov. 18 for a single 737 MAX (variant unspecified), followed by a different customer’s order for two 737 MAXs Nov. 22.
