Time On The Assembly Line

Tue Sep 17, 2002 12:48 am

How long does it take to build the average plane. I am really referring to Boeing here...I know some planes take longer than other but how long will it take Boeing to complete, say Ryanair's order of 103 737s and also KLMs 4 777s...thanks

I believe that it typically takes 80-90 days to build a 747. But that's really the final stages, not counting all the time for all the sub-assemblies. If you want to start from scratch, it's a lot more work.
