Boeing expects its commercial aircraft book-to-bill ratio to exceed one by year-end, following what CEO Jim McNerney characterized as a “strong” third quarter that yielded net firm orders for 221 airplanes worth more than $12 billion, compared with a net order count of 79 during the corresponding period last year. Meanwhile, Boeing Commercial Airplanes delivered 124 airplanes during the quarter, compared with 113 a year earlier.

The risk that first delivery of the first 747-8 to Cargolux will slip into ne...

Citing “a couple of workmanship issues, and a design issue or two,” Boeing CEO Jim McNerney planted another seed of doubt about the company's chances of delivering the first 747-8 before year-end. In fact, McNerney said the 787 Dreamliner-from which Boeing has already exhausted most of its schedule margin for delivery this year-stood a better chance of meeting its 2010 delivery goal than did the 747-8.

Boeing's decision to re-engine the existing 737 will depend not only on the actions of arch-rival Airbus, but whether or not the Chicago-based airframe maker concludes that it could bring to market a good enough replacement airplane by 2020, Boeing CEO Jim McNerney told analysts and investors at last week’s Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference in New York.

Boeing will move ahead with plans to increase the production rate on the 737 program from 31.5 to 34 airplanes a month in early 2012, the company announced this week.

Boeing will reveal the location of its planned second final assembly line for the 787 “over the next couple of weeks,” CEO James McNerney said today. Speaking during the company’s third-quarter earnings call, McNerney effectively narrowed the competition to Everett and Charleston, S.C., while downplaying the risk and redundancy of locating two lines that build the same product on opposite sides of the country.
