Delivering on our promises

As we officially kick off Boeing’s centennial year, we’re once again focused on deliveries and executing on our production rate increases. Production rates will climb again this year as the 767 program moves to two airplanes per month and the 787 rate climbs to 12 per month.

It comes after another year of record deliveries that we reported today. In 2015, our teams delivered 762 airplanes, 39 more than the previous year and the most ever for Boeing. In addition, two programs - the 737 and 787 - reached new milestones, with 495 and 135 deliveries, respectively.

On the orders side, we booked 768 net orders—a book to bill of just over 1. Our backlog at the end of the year stood at a very healthy 5,795 unfilled orders.

While there will certainly be opportunities and challenges ahead in 2016, we can look forward to the first flight of the 737 MAX, completion of the 777X Composite Wing Center in Everett and the start of major assembly on the 787-10.

We thank all of our customers for their business—and congratulate our employees on another record accomplishment.

Great achievement Boeing, our real dream will be true when all Boeing's planes parts are manufactured in USA.

Nick Johnson (Orcas, WA):

According to the blog "All Things 787", United Airlines has 6 787-9s in the production schedule, but only 5 remaining on order. Why the discrepancy?

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

Congrats on nearing 100 years on quality aircraft as well as boats and a turbine for a Kenworth truck. I look forward to what the new year brings in deliveries and development of new products.

Randy Tinseth:

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the question, but we don't publicly discuss our production schedule.

Jim Love (Hudson, Ohio):


How come Boeing didn't show up at the Iran Aviation Summit? Seems like we let Airbus get the jump on us??


Randy Tinseth:

Hi Jim,

We’ll have to wait and see. There are many steps that need to be taken should we decide to sell airplanes to Iran’s airlines. For now, we continue to assess the situation.
