Boeing 737 Sets Annual Delivery and Order Records
The old mark of 376 deliveries was set in 2010.
United Airines was the recipient of the milestone plane, a 737-900ER fitted with a Boeing Sky Interior (N39463).
With Boeing churning out a little over one 737 daily (35 per month) and 27 days remaining in the year following the record-setting delivery, it is possible Boeing will exceed the 400 mark by the close of 2012, though production rates are not directly tied to delivery rates.
Net year-to-date orders for 737 aircraft have reached 1,031, shattering the record of 846 set in 2007.
