New aircraft with better features a ‘gamechanger’ for air travel: Barbara Peterson
AFAR Magazine special correspondent Barbara Peterson discusses how air travel is changing with new aircraft designs and how new features improve the passenger experience.
Boeing will add a fourth assembly line to produce more 737 Max aircraft, as it tries to more quickly translate a backlog of orders into cash-generating deliveries of new planes.
The new line will open in the second half of next year, according to a note Monday to employees from Stan Deal, the CEO of Boeing's commercial-planes business.
The line will be in an existing facility in Everett, Washington, where space is available because Boeing is shifting production of larger 787s to South Carolina and ending production of the iconic 747.
