Re: Updated: Boeing to reduce 787 production to 10 aircraft per month in 2021

Last year Boeing delivered 155 787s.
That gives a 12,9 monthly rate.
In 2018 it delivered a total of 145 frames which works out to a monthly rate of 12.
Clearly company PR is puffing up real production numbers. So for this year I would guesstimate actual deliveries to be around 120 for a rate of 10.
