Boeing’s top management is unwilling to be lured into giving guidance for aircraft deliveries in 2024 until January. But it expects to have made major strides by then as it deals with two obstacles: the rework on the 737/MAX and 787, plus bringing back stability to supplier Spirit AeroSystems. President and CEO David Calhoun hopes to have these issues in the rearview mirror as quickly as possible, so Boeing can focus on the production ramp-up, he said on Wednesday during the Q3 earnings call.

As reported, Boeing hasĀ lowered its full-year delivery guidance for the 737/MAX programs to 375-400 aircraft from the original target of 400-450 as rework on the vertical tailfin fitting issue and aft pressure bulkhead non-conformances take longer.
