BoeingIn the last month, its deliveries increased to 35 aircraft, in part thanks to the delivery of new 787 Dreamliners to airlines.
Manufacturing defects have pause delivery of wide-body Dreamliners over the years.
From Germany Lufthansa and Dutch Airlines KLM Boeing said one of the customers received the new Dreamliners in August after the plane was cleared by the Federal Aviation Administration. Each airline receives one aircraft.
Two Dreamliners American Airlines received last month are not included in the tally. Those jets were flown to Victorville, California, for Boeing to install Wi-Fi equipment and other items in the planes’ interiors.
Boeing also recorded 26 net orders for new planes last month, half of which were for 737 Max planes. Its net orders for the year stood at 388 units and deliveries were 277 units. That number spans the 637 net orders and 380 deliveries that rival Airbus reported.
Both manufacturers said supply chain constraints are limiting their ability to ramp up production despite the rise of air travel.
