Boeing to raise 787 output to 14 jets a month in 2019

SEATTLE: Boeing will raise its production of 787 Dreamliner passenger jets to 14 a month in 2019, chief executive Dennis Muilenberg said on Wednesday, pressing ahead with plans that had been placed on hold as it gauged demand for wide-body jets.

The decision to raise output from 12 a month was announced at a conference, a spokesman said, shortly after Boeing struck a preliminary deal to sell eight of the jets to Malaysia Airlines. - Reuters
