Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Ray Conner stated (17-Jun-2013) the 737 MAX has now recorded more than 1,300 orders and the programme continues to reach key milestones on schedule. Production rate increases on the 737, 777 and 787 programs have been successfully executed, and future rate breaks remain on target. Mr Conner added that conversations with customers are helping to rapidly define the 777X and 787-10X and the company wants to "maintain our lead of the widebody segment and grow it even more", which he believes the new aircraft will allow it to do.
