Boeing Commercial Airplanes' fourth quarter revenue increased year-over-year by 94 percent to $9.2 billion driven by higher 737 and 787 deliveries, partially offset by 787 customer considerations. The 737 program production rate has stabilized at 31 airplanes per month, and the company plans on ramping up production to around 50 per month by 2025/2026. Boeing’s 787 program continues at a low production rate which will reach five per month in late 2023, and increase to 10 per month by 2025/2026. During Q4, the company received 376 net orders, including an order from United Airlines for 100 737 MAX and 100 787 Dreamliners. Boeing Commercial Airplanes delivered 152 airplanes during the fourth quarter and ended the period with a backlog of over 4,500 airplanes valued at $330 billion.


Boeing’s commercial deliveries for the full-year 2022 totaled 480 commercial airplanes, including 387 737s, 374 737 MAX Family, and 13 military-derivative airplanes. The company also delivered 93 widebodies, including five 747s, 33 767s, 24 777s, and 31 787s. During 2022, Boeing also delivered 44 new production freighters. On January 31, 2023, Boeing will present a live webcast of the ceremony marking the final 747 delivery to Atlas Air at 4 PM Eastern (1 PM Pacific). The final airplane, a 747-8 Freighter, is the 1,574th manufactured over 55 years of production.
