Tallying the numbers

Now that all of our numbers for May have rolled, I wanted to take a closer look at where we stand on orders and deliveries.

In the month of May, we delivered 71 airplanes, including 14 787s, 47 737s and nine 777s. Our year to date delivery total through the end of May is 301 airplanes.


The delivery of the world’s first co-branded 777 to China Airlines, one of nine 777s we delivered in May.

On the orders side, we added one more 787 order just this week— bringing our year to date net total to 269 airplanes across all programs.

Our goal is to continue executing on our production rate increases. The 787 program recently rolled out its first airplane at a new rate of 12 airplanes per month. The new rate establishes a new Boeing and industry record.

Congratulations to all of our teams.

You build magnificent machines with Airbus. But what is even more wonderful is that you're still number one!

Great production numbers, this is the first time that I have seen a 777 with the front wheels lower that the rear wheels while in flight.

Andrew Boydston (Boise ID USA):

The shrinking backlog with the 787, positions Boeing well for customer delivery slot opportunities for its potential and future 787 customers. Congratulation Boeing production teams for giving airline customers an advantage in the market place through timely deliveries.
