    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Emirates Airlines' position as the biggest all-time orderer of Boeing jets lasted all of four days.

    Boeing announced Thursday that Indonesia's Lion Air has set a record with a nearly $22 billion order of jets. The U.S. company had previously counted the jets in its sales order, but didn't disclose the buyer until the announcement.

    The deal -- which will be signed Friday at the East Asia Summit in Bali, Indonesia, with President Obama in attendance -- includes orders for 29 737-900s and a whopping 201 of the new 737 MAXs, along with options for 150 additional future aircraft for Indonesia's largest carrier.

    "With 230 airplanes at a list price of $21.7 billion, this deal when finalized will be the largest commercial airplane order ever in Boeing's history by both dollar volume and total number of airplanes," according to a statement from Boeing.
