LAN Airlines’ order of five Boeing 767-300ERs doubles Boeing’s count for the civilian version of the twin-engine jet this year and helped boost the company’s total net orders through May 17 to 127.

Boeing now has taken 13 767 orders in 2011, 10 more than in all of 2010. But four of this year’s orders were for USAF tanker versions.

LAN ordered three 767s earlier in the year.

Lufthansa also formally signed for five 777 freighters announced in March, raising total 777 orders to 61 for the year and giving further evidence why the company is considering boosting production rates beyond the 100-per-year rate it expects to reach in 2013.
