Boeing books orders for 30 of its 737s

Boeing Co. says it has received orders for 30 more of its 737s in the past week.

Boeing's weekly order update on Thursday did not say who is buying the planes.

Boeing customers have ordered 382 of those planes so far this year, out of a total of 422 orders for all commercial planes. The 737 have a list price of between $51 million to $87 million, although discounts are common.

The 737 can carry anywhere from 110 to more than 200 people, depending on the version of the plane and how it is set up. It is typically used on domestic flights, and competes with the Airbus A320.
