Today, we took one final look back at 2012 as Boeing released its fourth-quarter and full year earnings report. We finished 2012 with record revenue and a record backlog—while restoring our market share leadership in orders and deliveries.
Now, we turn our full attention to 2013. As our Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney said, our first order of business is to resolve the 787 battery issue and return the airplanes safely to service with our customers. Our teams continue to work the issue day and night.
In the meantime, 787 production continues and we remain confident in the future of the program—as well as the integrity, safety and performance of the airplane. The company says guidance for 2013 deliveries is expected to be between 635 and 645 airplanes across all programs, which includes greater than 60 787 deliveries.
Going forward this year, we’re focused on meeting our commitments through higher production rates and improved efficiency. The 737 MAX and 787-9 remain on schedule. And we’ll keep moving ahead with the 777X and the 787-10X.
Today, we also released a video recapping the highlights of 2012. Enjoy!
