A lot of great things are happening at our 787 factory in Everett. In just the past few days, the first major piece of the 787-9 arrived—and the first 787 built at the increased production rate of 7 airplanes per month rolled out of the factory. Today, we marked another important moment as 787 deliveries got back underway with a delivery to ANA.

The health of our 787 factories in Everett and North Charleston has never been better or more efficient. And despite the disruption in deliveries over the past several months, we still expect to deliver all the 787s we originally planned to by the end of the year. We once again thank our customers for their patience and confidence as we begin delivering on our commitments.
