Boeing Gets Orders For 20 777s

CHICAGO (AP) -- Boeing Co. says it booked orders for 20 of its 777 aircraft last month.

The aircraft manufacturer did not identify the customers.

Last month, 777 customer El-Al Israel Airlines canceled an order for four of those planes.

So far this year Boeing has booked orders for 112 planes, well ahead of Airbus, which reported orders for 67 aircraft.

The Chicago-based company ended last year with a backlog of orders for 3,375 commercial aircraft.

Also on Thursday, Boeing said it had gotten orders for two new 737s for RwandAir.
