Even so, Boeing lowered its wide-body delivery forecast by 140 aircraft to 8,070, saying higher deliveries over the previous year and longer-range single-aisle planes ate into the rolling forecast.

Boeing is working on the 797, a so-called New Mid-market Aircraft or NMA, as it seeks a successor to its 757 and 767 models and a means of halting the success of Airbus SE in edging into the niche with its popular A321neo.

When the sun set Monday, Boeing had taken firm orders for 198 new passenger jets.

On Tuesday, Russian airline Volga Dnepr committed to buying Boeing freight aircraft worth $11.8bn at list prices, while Airbus announced a provisional deal with an unnamed customer for 100 of its A320 jets. The deal, if confirmed, would be worth USD$8.85 billion at A320neo list prices.

The two giants will add to record orders for benchmark narrowbody jets, whose waiting lists underpin their near-record share prices, while seeking a recovery in sales of bigger jets.

Brazilian manufacturer Embraer was also signing orders today when it finalised a deal to supply United Airlines with 25 E175 regional jets. Sichuan Airlines Corp. will purchase 10 of the widebody planes.
