Boeing reports 100 commercial airplane deliveries in quarter, highest since 2002

Boeing Co. said Thursday it delivered 100 commercial airplanes in the third quarter, the first time it has reached the century mark since 2002.
The total, up from 62 in the same period a year ago, leaves the world's No. 2 maker of commercial planes behind Airbus needing a repeat performance of 100 deliveries in the fourth quarter to meet its full-year forecast of 395.
The last time Boeing delivered more planes in a three-month period was the second quarter of 2002, when the total of 112 reflected orders placed before the industry slowdown caused by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Third-quarter deliveries included 81 737s, 13 777s, three 747s and three 767s. The popular single-aisle 737 has accounted for 76 percent of the company's 2006 total.
