The overall backlog orders at Boeing represent the expected transaction prices on performance obligations to customers for which work remains accomplished.

Backlog orders exclude options and Boeing Capital orders.
Boeing’s total backlog orders have declined from $486.84 billion in Q1 2019 to $363.85 billion in Q1 2021. The reasons behind this decline are two fatal MAX 737 accidents in the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration issued an order on March 13, 2019, to suspend 737 MAX aircraft operations in the U.S. and the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought the travel and tourist industries to a halt around the world and prompted airline firms to reduce capital investments.

Global services backlog orders decreased from $22.75 billion in Q1 2020 to $19.61 billion as of Q1 2021. This decline occurred due to flights and aircraft retirements.
