Boeing’s figure of 71 total 777 order excludes 4 leased 777-300ERs from BOC Aviation.

If leased 777-300ERs are counted, it should be 75: 50 777-300ERs; 12 777-300; 5 777-200; 8 777F freighters.

I know most times Boeing won’t count the leases not through them since they aren’t the airlines and seem to come and go more often. But great catch!
