The latest reports have shown an uptick in Boeing’s sales of its 787 Dreamliner.

The first quarter of 2015 saw a fourteen percent increase compared to last year in deliveries of all airplanes – mostly due to the rise in 787 and 737 sales.

Thirty of the of the 787 have been sold in the first three months of the year, putting Boeing right where they want to be at ten per month. In the first quarter of 2014, they were at an average of 6 per month, meaning they have seen a sixty-six percent increase in sales compared to last year.

Boeing has delivered around half of the 787-8’s that are on order. On the other hand, only about five percent of the newer 787-9’s have been delivered, which is something the manufacturer would like to see change.

“The more of these airplanes (787-9s) that are delivered the better Boeing’s financial results will look,” wrote Uresh Seth, a popular blogger who writes about Boeing.

Another milestone Boeing reached was the production of their 300th 787. The aircraft is ZB536, a 787-9 for Vietnam Airlines. This particular one reached final assembly in early March, and took 33 days for it to be completed. Boeing began production of the 787 in 2007.

The 787 Dreamliner is very environmentally friendly. It is Boeing’s most fuel-efficient airliner, and is constructed mostly from composite materials.
