Boeing ramps up production of 787; United soon to fly Dreamliner
Boeing is building its new 787 Dreamliner on a third assembly line. The company is trying to transition from the delays it experienced during development of the new airplane into full-speed production. The temporary "surge line" adds to the existing assembly line in Everett, Wash., and the company also has added an assembly line in South Carolina. With a backlog of more than 800 orders, Boeing plans on boosting the 787 production rate from its current 3.5 airplanes a month to 10 per month by the end of next year.
