A Boeing representative told reporters on Tuesday that the company is examining whether the Boeing 737 could be produced at a rate of 52 per month starting in 2018 at the earliest. The announcement comes as Boeing already plans to raise the rate to 42 a month later this year, and up to 47 a month in 2017. Once the 737 is produced at 42 a month, Boeing will have raised the production rate 33% since 2010. Increases in factory efficiency are being credited for allowing Boeing to raise the production rate to these levels. (Image Credit: Boeing)
