The Chicago-based aerospace company delivered 109 planes in the period, up from 100. That pushed its total for the year to 329 and kept it on pace to reach its full-year estimate of 440 to 445.
Boeing delivered 81 of its stalwart 737s in the quarter for a total of 250 this year. It delivered 20 777s, five 747s and three 767s.
