Etihad three new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners

Boeing delivers 27 aircraft in February and the year remains below 2023

Widebody 787 Dreamliner offset drop in 737 MAX deliveries. Planemaker added 15 new orders

Boeing repeated in February the same 27 planes delivered in January, reaching a total of 54 aircraft delivered in 2024. The numbers are lower than in 2023 when the planemaker had delivered 66 jets in the same two months.

Last month’s result was only possible because Boeing managed to deliver seven 787-9 Dreamliner widedodies in addition to a 767-300F freighter and two military aircraft – a P-8A Poseidon and a KC-46.

Under pressure after quality failures in production, Boeing only delivered 17 737 MAX, eight fewer than in January.

So far, 42 737 MAX have been delivered compared to the 59 delivered in January and February 2023.

Boeing planned to increase production of the type to 42 aircraft per month, however, it was blocked by the FAA while it undergoes an audit of its assembly line.

Following the incident with Alaska Airlines’ 737 MAX 9 on January 5, which lost a door plug in flight, the US manufacturer paused production in Renton for a few days while it went over procedures to its employees.

Last month, Boeing added 15 more aircraft orders to its backlog. Royal Brunei Airlines has acquired four 787-9s in an announcement made at the Singapore Airshow.

The planemaker also had an order for a single 777F freighter and another for ten 737 MAX, both from undisclosed customers.
