Boeing Increases 777 Production Rate
Boeing said Tuesday it is now building the first 777 at a rate of 8.3 aircraft per month, a nearly 20 percent increase over the previous monthly production rate for the 777.
In an effort to keep up with the demand for its 777, Boeing hired “hundreds of additional employees” to help increase the monthly production rate.
The first 777 aircraft will be a freighter to be delivered to Korean Air in February 2013.
