Lufthansa Cargo will lease 1 more 777F directly from Boeing for AeroLogic, the plane will be delivered this fall.

This was most likely the order for 1 777F for Boeing Capital that was booked in December.
The unidentified 737-800s backlog are mainly Chinese, with China Eastern (MU) and subsidiaries should be behind the largest part of the 29 orders. But there are some other non Chinese airlines that will also take delivery of new 737-800s in 2019 Pobeda (DP) should take 6 of them through Sberbank Lea...Jump to post
There is an order of 16 from unidentified customers.

But the production slots are not unlimited and in the case of the 787 we already have the 787-9 that has proven itself to be very popular plane among airlines. So even if the 787-10 turns out to be a very economical aircraft it will still has to compete for available slots with the 787-9. Boeing cou...Jump to post
The sales success of the 787-9 is pretty much the biggest reason why the 787-10 hasn't been the sales success like some people predicted. The available production slots were simply sold to airlines buying the 787-9. This wouldn't have changed too much if Boeing had turned the 787-10 into a 787-10ER ...Jump to post
No one has mentioned China. The Chinese airlines are responsible for the surge in demand for A330s. 38 of the 47 A330ceos delivered in 2018 went to Chinese operators. So far no Chinese airline has ordered the A330neo. In my opinion, the future of the A330 depends on What the Chinese do. Will they c...Jump to post

Backlogs - Airbus deliveries do not support the supposed 1,800 narrow body backlog difference with Boeing. Why should Airbus match Boeings backlog?
