Boeing has rolled out the first 787 Dreamliner to be built at the increased production rate of seven aircraft per month.
The aircraft, which rolled off the Everett final assembly line early in the week beginning May 7, is the 100th 787 to be built at Everett and the 114th Boeing 787-8 built overall.
It is destined for delivery to British Airways.
Boeing currently has three 787 assembly lines: the original Everett final assembly line, the Everett Temporary Surge Line (needed to help Boeing achieve its planned production-rate increases) and Boeing South Carolina.
The manufacturer says the Boeing 787 production program is on track to achieve a planned rate of 10 aircraft per month by year-end. This rate accounts for aircraft built at all three current 787 assembly lines.
To date, 50 787s have been delivered to eight airlines. The program has orders outstanding for more than 800 aircraft from 58 customers worldwide.
