Boeing also having a "Fifth Season" this year?

After giving an outlook to Airbus' Fifth Season for this year yesterday, I want to look what we can expect from Boeing until the end of the year? Will it also be a record year? The last year was the year were Boeing took in a record number of orders, thanks largely to the B737MAX, which had it's first
full year of sales. Overall, in 2012 there were
  • 1326 gross orders
    • 914 B737MAX
    • 257 B737NG (civil versions only)
    • 7 B747
    • 23 B767
    • 75 B777
    • 50 B787
  • 1190 net orders
Until the end of November 2013 we have
  • 1215 gross orders
    • 575 M737MAX
    • 352 B737NG
    •   10 B747
    •    0 B767
    •   96 B777
    • 165 B787
  • 1040 net orders
So there are 111 gross orders or 150 net orders missing to hit a new all-time record.
And there is a good chance that this will happen: there are quite a lot announced but not firmed up orders like:
  • 11 B737NG and 75 B737MAX for flydubai
  • 40 B737NG and 30 B737MAX for Xiamen
  • 35 B737MAX for Rostech
  • 20 B737NG for Air China
  • 12 B737NG for Yakutia
  • 5 B737NG for Oman Air
  • 4 B737MAX for Skymark
  • up to 200 B737MAX for Ryanair (?)
  • 200 B737MAX for chinese airlines
  • 150 B777X for Emirates
  • 50 B777X for Qatar
  • 18 B787 for British Airways
  • plus probably many more I forgot
So there could also be a "Fifth Season" in Seattle/Chicago this year...

  1. I think there is a minor mistake for 2013 with B767 and B777.
