Quotes:
Boeing said first-quarter airliner deliveries climbed 40 percent, helped by demand from low-cost and international carriers. Shipments of commercial jets last quarter rose to 98, the jet maker said in a statement today. That's up from 70 a year earlier.

Seventy two deliveries were for Boeing's 737 model popular with discount airlines such as Southwest Airlines and Ryanair Holdings.The deliveries included 17 of the company's more profitable 777 wide-body jets, or 17 percent of the total, compared with eight in last year's first quarter, or 11 percent.

This will help lower a rising trade deficit. Boeing is one of the only companies in this country that makes something that is sold to other countries. So sad...

OK, I've got it. So you have never heard of Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon, Costco, Dell, Oracle, GE, Wal-Mart, Mobil, Lockheed, Martin-Marietta, United Technologies, Cargill, IBM, Ford, GM, the NBA, wheat farmers, bankers, stock exchanges, Hollywood, Record companies, etc., etc., all of which spread US products all over the world?

Aren't you confusing exports with imports?

What h*** were you thinking?

Ummmm Boeing are the largest US Exporter. Walmart is probably the largest US importer.

Why so harsh?

Lockheed, Martin-Marietta

Pretty big exporter of "single use" products; ie bombs. Some AC are for export but most of their production is for domestic use i.e US Navy Aircraft carriers etc.

Quoting Dhefty (Reply 2):
Costco, Dell,

Very big importers.

Quoting Dhefty (Reply 2):
Wal-Mart, Mobil,

Some of our biggest importers.

Quoting Dhefty (Reply 2):
Ford, GM

mostly domestic sales. Almost all foreign Ford and GM sales are produced abroad.

the point is, just because the company is a big brand, doesn't mean its a big exporter. Starbucks for example is huge in Germany, but I don't think much is exported from the US to Germany. Startbucks is a BRAND, and sure the profits come over here, but that's different to exporting products made by American workers.

CAT and Boeing are major exporters of US manufactured products and you can also add CISCO and Microsoft along with them too.

Boeing 2006 Q1 Sales Jump 40%

Your thread title is sales...

Quoting LAXDESI (Thread starter):
Boeing's first-quarter jet deliveries climb 40 percent to 98 aircrafts.

...but your message is actually about deliveries.

Sales and deliveries are not the same thing. Would you be so good as to change your title? Thanks.

Title of thread should read Boeing deliveries jump 40%, not sales.

On pace for over 360 deliveries this year, even if other quarters aren't quite as brisk as Q1s 98. Pretty good increase from last year. And looks like Boeing could deliver over 75 772ER/LR, 773ERs + 744Fs. That's a lot of pricey jets!

First step is admitting you have a problem...  Wink

Anyway, thanks for the post. Maybe a mod will change the title for us.

How could you have left Apple Computer, Inc. off this list??! Ever heard of the world-dominating iPod? They're everywhere -- and are designed right here in the USA.

The good news is that it sounds like Boeing has gotten through their recent ramp up. It was the disasterous ramp up back in the late 90s that almost killed Airbus and led to Airbus's unseating them.

IPOD is designed in the US, but produced in China!
