Boeing delivered 11 BBJs last year (including two BBJ2s), five fewer than the 16 in 2001 and down three from the 14 aircraft delivered in 2000. In 1999, its first full year of deliveries, 29 BBJs were shipped. Just four of the 11 BBJs delivered last year are on the U.S. registry. Of the 78 total BBJs delivered from 1998 through last year, the 60 in operation have logged more than 50,500 hours with a dispatch reliability of 99.9 percent, according to Boeing.
