Boeing took orders and commitments for 201 aircraft during the Farnborough air show, valued at $40.2 billion against the $75.3 billion disclosed by rival Airbus.

It firmed the order for 50 777-9Xs for Qatar Airways originally identified during last year’s Dubai air show.

Boeing took firm orders for 12 777-300ERs from lessors Air Lease and Intrepid, plus 12 787-9s from CIT Aerospace and MG Aviation.

These were complemented by orders for 32 737s, among them 26 re-engined Max aircraft.

Boeing accumulated commitments for four 777 freighters, six 787-9s and 85 737 Max jets. China’s Hainan Airlines and the UK’s Monarch Airlines accounted for most of the 737 commitments.

These agreements, says the airframer, will take its net orders so far in 2014 to 783 aircraft.
