Delivery record

Employees at our factories and delivery centers have outdone themselves once again. In the 3rd quarter, we delivered 199 airplanes. That’s a new all-time quarterly record for Boeing, topping the previous record of 197 set during the 2nd quarter of this year.

Year to date, we’ve delivered 580 airplanes—including 101 787s.

These record deliveries don’t just happen. It takes a lot of planning and execution. Bottom line—it’s all part of our goal to get airplanes into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible.

Congratulations to everyone at our Everett, Renton and North Charleston factories—and the teams at our delivery centers in Everett, Seattle and North Charleston.

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

580 planes is a lot and 101 787s are impressive, keep up with the good work and orders.

Cristiano Arruda (Campo Grande, MS, Brazil.):

Is it my impression or Boeing will really deliver the 787's prior to the expected deadline? This delivery rate gives comfort to companies that plan to order some of this marvel.
