Family-wise Deliveries

737 family

Boeing delivered 34 737’s in January, well short of the 52 production rate at Renton. Deliveries are lower since Chinese carriers which make up 1/3rd of all 737 deliveries have slowed their delivery rate, which could indicate they are waiting for a settlement of the U.S.-China trade and tariff dispute.

767 family

Boeing delivered one 767F to FedEx and another to the USAF tanker conversion program. Separately Boeing defence has delivered the USAFs first five KC-46A tankers.

777 family

The manufacturer only delivered two 777s in January. Both being freighters for FedEx.

787 family

A total of eight 787’s were delivered to American, Etihad, Japan Airlines, United and Westjet. Two of the deliveries were to leasing companies.
