China Eastern Airlines has scrapped an order for 24 787 Dreamliners from Boeing, the plane maker said on Thursday.

China Eastern replaced the Dreamliner order with an order for 45 Boeing 737NGs.

Boeing also said it took an order for two additional 787s from Air New Zealand.

Boeing also reduced its net 737 orders by two, but did not say which customer cancelled the orders.

The deals bring Boeing's net orders to 406 commercial planes for this year.
