What's the current B787 production? Once they receive clearance, how many per month will they ramp up to?


Current production is around two per month and once they are fully-cleared, Boeing intends to raise that to three a month ASAP and then proceed to an eventual five per month.

Re: Boeing 767 Production / Activity Thread - 2022

In 1995, GE developed a low emissions combustor for the CF6 at the request of UPS which improved fuel combustion and significantly reduced hydro-carbons (HC), nitrous oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) below ICAO standards at the time. So they might be able to do something again to meet the 2028 r...
