Boeing Cuts 2023 Delivery Forecast; Keeps Production Plan in Place

Source: Boeing

Boeing has updated its guidance for 2023. The company says it will deliver fewer 737s than planned this year due to a quality issue at supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

Until now, the manufacturer has maintained that it would deliver between 400 and 450 jet in 2023.  Now it has reduced that target to 375 to 400 aircraft.  Despite the setback, Boeing plans to keep its 737 production ramp up plan intact.

Clients should note that my forecast for the 737 reflects production of the aircraft rather than deliveries, which includes both new aircraft rolling off the line and aircraft it built but could not deliver during the period regulators had grounded the aircraft.  I have kept the existing forecast in place for now but may adjust it later in the year if Boeing issues new guidance on production rates.
