Reduced Production Rate

During the first quarter, the Boeing 737 program saw a decrease in production below 38 monthly units. Boeing Commercial Airplane booked 125 net orders, including 85 737-10 airplanes for American Airlines (AA) and 28 777X airplanes for customers including Ethiopian Airlines (ET). 

Currently, Boeing’s backlog stands at 5,600 airplanes, at a cumulative value of USD 448 billion. Overall, the commercial airplane backlog has increased by USD 8 billion over the same period in 2023.

"Our first quarter results reflect the immediate actions we've taken to slow down 737 production to drive improvements in quality. We will take the time necessary to strengthen our quality and safety management systems and this work will position us for a stronger and more stable future," said Dave Calhoun, Boeing president and CEO.
