Farnborough Postscript - How did I get to 500+ orders

Someone has been questioning my math. So I will admit to fudging a little but here is the actual math, note that I have not added options:

Airbus Full orders: 256
Boeing Full Orders: 197
Bombardier C-Series: 30 (plus 30 Options)
Sukhoi Superjet 100: 49

Note I didn't include Turboprops nor the freighter conversions.
The fudging is from Boeing, whose orders for most of their big announcements were previously listed as being no-name customers specifically the Air China order for 45 planes - 737/777s.

Now will you believe me?
