DSC_0376Boeing announced the number of commercial aircraft deliveries for the first quarter of 2019.

The aircraft manufacturer delivered a total of 149, a year-over-year decrease of 18.5% from 184 in the same period one year earlier.

The company delivered 89 737s, a decrease of 32% from 132 in Q1 2018. In addition, it delivered 36 787 Dreamliners, an increase of 6.5% from 2018, as well as 12 767s, a 300% increase from 2019, 10 777s, a .016% drop, and 2 747s, unchanged from 2018.

While Boeing didn’t comment on the significant decrease, much of it can be attributed to the worldwide grounding of the new Boeing 737 Max aircraft. The company stopped delivering 737 Max jets in mid March following two crashes of 737 Max 8 aircraft in a six-month period.
