All down the line

Anyone who has been inside our 737 factory in Renton is always impressed at how quickly the airplanes roll down the line. Demand from our customers is the reason we’re increasing our rates to get those airplanes into their hands.

Case in point— Lion Air from Indonesia. Today, the airline took delivery of its 70th Next-Generation 737. The 737-900ER features a special livery commemorating the milestone.

Tomorrow, Lion Air will take delivery of its 71st Next-Generation 737. It shows the amazing growth the airline is experiencing as it flies more passengers at lower costs. You may remember that back in February, Lion ordered 29 737s and 201 737 MAXs worth $22.4 billion at list prices, making it the largest commercial airplane order in Boeing’s history. They’ve also ordered five 787s for its newly launched premium carrier Batik Air.

Congratulations to Lion for today’s milestone—and thanks for keeping all of us very busy here at Boeing.
