China News Service, November 10th, a comprehensive report, on the 9th local time, Boeing said that it delivered 27 aircraft to customers in October.

At the same time, the delivery of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is still suspended.

  According to reports, of the 27 planes delivered last month, 18 were 737MAX passenger planes, of which 6 were purchased by Ryanair Europe (RYA.I).

  According to Reuters, the data also showed that Boeing’s October deliveries were 8 less than September, but 14 more than last October.

  In addition, in 2021, Boeing has delivered 268 aircraft, far exceeding the 111 delivered in the same period last year.

Of the aircraft delivered this year, 212 are Boeing 737MAX passenger jets.

  In October 2018 and March 2019, two Boeing 737MAX crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia occurred one after another, killing 346 people in total.

After two air crashes, Boeing 737MAX was once banned from flying around the world.

As the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lifted the grounding order, some air carriers have gradually resumed ordering the aircraft.

  The report pointed out that Boeing is still working hard to resolve the structural defects of its 787 passenger plane.

According to the US Consumer News and Business Channel (CNBC), the delivery of the Boeing 787 has been suspended for most of the past year after the discovery of manufacturing defects.  

  Due to fuselage defects and other problems, Boeing has repeatedly suspended deliveries of the 787 airliner.

The FAA has also requested more information about production defects, including small gaps in the fuselage panel joints.

  Boeing Chief Executive Dave Calhoun said in October that the company clearly sees the next steps in resuming 787 deliveries.

However, he did not give a specific timetable for waiting for regulatory approval.
