Boeing has added ten new orders to its backlog, including four 777 aircraft from an unidentified customer.

Included in the tally are four 737-900ERs from El Al and two 747-8Fs for Korean Air Cargo, the first two jumbos firmed into its backlog this year.

Additionally, FedEx Express was identified as the customer of four previously booked 777F aircraft, formerly attributed to an unidentified customer.

Boeing also reduced 737 orders by one, bringing the yearly net tally for the narrowbody to 46 aircraft, while 777 net orders increased to 33.

Boeing currently holds 123 gross orders for new aircraft in 2011, with 47 cancellations, a number weighted heavily by Dubai Aerospace Enterprise abandoning 32 737s in February.
