Boeing has surpassed the 900 order mark for its Boeing 787 Dreamliner programme, the company says.

The airframer added 15 additional 787 Dreamliners to its 2008 order book, bringing the total to 910 firm orders. The order is attributed to an unidentified customer and is listed on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website.

A Boeing spokeswoman indicated the order is for a new customer, bringing the total number of customers 59. The variant of 787 was not specified.

The updated order total also reflects two new 777s for an unidentified customer.

The 787 Dreamliner is expected to enter service in the first quarter of 2010.
