Boeing Deliveries Drop As 787 Program Remains On Pause

Disclosing its latest delivery figures on Tuesday, US planemaker Boeing disclosed that it delivered 27 aircraft to its customers last month. Unfortunately, the company’s 787 deliveries remain on hold as it continues to work with regulators on production issues. Let’s take a look at which airlines received new Boeing aircraft during the month of October.

27 aircraft delivered

Disclosing its October delivery figures this week, Boeing delivered 27 aircraft to 14 customers. Customers include cargo operators such as FedEx and UPS, as well as military (US and Norwegian defense forces) and VIPs.

Taking delivery of the most aircraft last month was European budget operator Ryanair. The all-737 carrier accepted six 737 MAX jets into its already massive fleet of high-density narrowbody aircraft. All other customers took delivery of just one or two aircraft.

Other interesting deliveries include one 747-8F to UPS and a 767-300F to FedEx Express.

Despite four freighters being delivered, it was really the 737 that dominated Boeing’s deliveries.

In addition to the aforementioned six to Ryanair, the planemaker delivered 737 MAX jets to airlines like Aeromexico, Air Canada, TUI, Turkish Airlines, and United Airlines. Several 737s also went to leasing companies AerCap and CDB Aviation. Outside of the commercial realm, a modified 737-800, known as the P-8 Poseidon, went to the Norwegian military.
