Boeing 777 boosts production rate

The first Boeing 777 jetliner was rolled at the seven-per-month production rate.

Larry Loftis, vice president and general manager, 777, Boeing, was quoted in eTurbo News as having said that this rate increase reflects the strong demand for the 777 as it continues to be the clear leader in the 300-400 passenger seat market. Loftis added that they were prepared, thorough and disciplined as they have increased their production rate from five to seven.

The program built at the seven-per-month rate from July 1997 to February 1998, August 1998 to October 1999, and November 2006 to May 2010, making this the fourth time the program built the 777 at this rate.
