SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing reports an order from an unidentified customer for eight 777 jetliners.

At list prices the order would be worth about $2 billion.

The new order posted this week on a company website brings Boeing's net orders for jetliners this year to 117. Of those, 56 are the 777 model, a medium-sized widebody jet that seats more than 300 passengers.
