A day after Boeing announced a new three-month delay in its crucial 787 Dreamliner program, the company revealed its first 2008 sales of the aircraft.

Boeing booked 24 new orders for the airplane this week, bringing the swelling Dreamliner order total to 841 jets.

Switzerland-based PrivatAir ordered one more VIP version of the Dreamliner, adding to one ordered in 2006 for use as a charter business jet.

PrivatAir will take the latest jet, worth $162 million at list prices, in 2016. After standard discounts the plane’s actual value is around $108 million, according to estimates by aircraft valuation firm Avitas.

Boeing said the other 23 new sales went to a single unidentified customer.

That order is worth more than $11 billion at list prices, and has an estimated actual value of more than $6 billion after standard discounts.
