Just over one month into 2011, Boeing's 737 net order total was wiped out with the cancellation of 32 737 aircraft from an unidentified customer.

As a result, Boeing's net order total for 2011 has dropped to two 777-300ER aircraft, which were ordered by American Airlines in January.

Prior to today's update, Boeing held gross orders for 22 737s and added a further 10 from an unidentified customer with its latest update, raising the gross total to 32, before being nullified today by the cancellation of the 32 737s.

The airframer received 508 gross orders for the 737 in 2010 and announced production increases to 38 aircraft per month by the second quarter of 2013.
