Boeing Releases Painful Delivery Numbers For 2019

Submitted
 
Boeing has released its 4th Quarter and 2019 year-end aircraft deliveries numbers, which were tremendously hurt by the ongoing 737 MAX crisis that has forced the grounding and halted its production. As seen in Boeing's official tally below, it is clear that the North American planemaker has severely suffered from the grounding of its 737 MAX program, with only delivering a total of 380 planes for the whole year.

It's really telling that 747 and 767 planes had a higher deliver rate than 777.

The demand that existed back then isn't there today.

The 747 was unique and if airlines wanted to be competitive on transatlantic or transpacific routes, they had to get in line at Boeing. The 767 also was fairly unique in that Airbus didn't really have anything that matched it.

The 787 has a pretty strong competitor in the A350, and the 737 isn't aging all that well -- the A321LR and A321XLR kick its butt in terms of performance and passenger comfort with a wider cabin, more legroom, and a larger lavatory. The latter is inexcusable because it used to be adequate until it was downsized to make room for more seats.

It's because with the 777-300ER orders nearing its end, the 767 cargo and military market have amped-up over the last couple of years. The 777F cargo version is still selling well, and wait until the 777X orders start to deliver, that'll be a great aircraft.

it is a blip, a costly blip, but a short-term bump in the sky. Too much pent up demand for Airbus to build fast enough to satisy the desires of the carriers, even if they build more satisfactory airplanes. Selling 5000 max's will be a trick, but check back in ten years and let us see. Boeing ought to butch up and commit to the MMA, for it does differentiate from Airbus somewhat. And United and Delta would like lots of them.....

The delivery numbers may not seem that good, but once the grounding gets lifted for the MAX, they'll be delivering aircraft like before, huge numbers. Especially since the 777X will start delivering shortly.

I just beginning to wonder if and when Boeing will get this straitened out. Seems like a mighty long time, and no relief in sight.

Assuming first quarter certification of the Max, the 400 or so aircraft already built will be delivered in 2020. Boeing has apparently over 100 fuselages sitting in train siding yards, waiting for the production line to be reopened.

They have a big enough Max order book to not have to worry long term, but if 2020 is the short term, deliveries will be close to but not exceed Airbus in 2020. Too many 737 lost in the first few weeks of 2020.
