Boeing reported that in Q3 2018 it delivered 190 commercial aircraft, including 138 Boeing 737 planes, two “Queens of the Skies” 747, four Boeing 767, 12 long-range wide-body twin-engine jet aeroplanes 777 and 34 Dreamliners.

Boeing delivered 190 new commercial jets in Q3 of 2018, compared with 194 in the second quarter and 202 in the third quarter of last year.

Boeing delivered 763 commercial jets in 2017 and aims to deliver 810-815 total planes in 2018, an increase of nearly 7% for the year. In order for Boeing to reach the low end of that projection, the company must deliver 242 new commercial jets in Q4. In Q4 of 2017, the company delivered 209 new planes.

Therefore, Boeing is in front of its rival Airbus, which succeeded in delivering 503 aircraft through September, up from 454 deliveries in the same period last year.
