However, the aviation and aerospace equipment maker did not reveal a new rate for the 787 production program, but said that it would temporarily shift to less than the current rate of 5 planes per month, bringing its shares down 3.5% during today’s trading on the “Wall Street” exchange.

The company said that since the beginning of the year it has delivered 156 aircraft of all types, compared to 157 aircraft for the whole of 2020, according to “Reuters”, and delivered more than 45 aircraft to customers in June, which is the highest monthly total since March 2019.

The company also stated that it will continue to take the time necessary to ensure that its aircraft are of the highest quality before delivery.

The FAA explained that the defect “is close to the front of certain 787 Dreamliners in the inventory of undelivered aircraft, and was discovered as part of an ongoing examination of Boeing 787 reinforcements required by the Federal Aviation Administration.”

“Although the defect does not pose an immediate threat to aviation safety, Boeing has pledged to repair these aircraft before resuming delivery,” it said, adding that after reviewing the data it would “determine whether similar modifications should be made to the 787s in actual use.”

flydubai cuts 737 MAX orders

On the other hand, a spokesman for the airline, “Fly Dubai” in the UAE, said in a statement on Tuesday that the company had agreed with “Boeing” to reduce the number of “737 Max” aircraft it will receive by 65 to 172 aircraft.

The company has already received 14 aircraft out of a total order that includes 251 aircraft, and its statement said: “Fly Dubai has reached an agreement with Boeing and the airline has adjusted its orders for aircraft that it placed in 2013 and 2017.”
