US aerospace giant Boeing which has launched the plane a year ago has said orders for its 787 Dreamliner passenger jet have topped the 500 mark
Boeing also said that Japanese airline JAL took the total Dreamliner order book so far to 514.
Boeing said 43 customers were interested and ordered since April 2004.
"This is an unprecedented achievement for Boeing and yet another wonderful milestone for the 787 programme," said Scott Carson, president and chief executive of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
They have attracted customers by showing them the 25% less consumption of fuel than regularly used. They can also worked to avoid technical problems. They are mainly investing heavily in development of the medium-sized jet.
"Surpassing the 500 order mark this early in the programme - more than a year before the first airplane is delivered - shows that Boeing made the right choice in our point-to-point business strategy," said Mike Bair, the Dreamliner project's vice president and general manager.
