Boeing Raises Plane Prices 1.6% at Slower Rate to 2012
Boeing Co. (BA) today unveiled pricing for its newest 787 Dreamliner as it boosted prices for most of its commercial jets by 1.6 percent, a lower rate to last year’s hike of 5.5 percent.
The newest and largest Dreamliner, the 787-10, has a list price of $288.7 million, down from the $290 million ballpark that Boeing provided for the jet to reporters at the Paris Air Show in June. The company also lifted prices for its two other Dreamliner models, the 787-8 and 787-9, by about 2.4 percent to $211.8 million and $249.5 million, respectively.
The price fluctuations reflect changes in wages, goods and services for Boeing’s commercial aircraft, its biggest source of sales, Doug Alder, a spokesman for the Chicago-based planemaker, said in an email.
The company also raised prices for its 737 Max models, tying each variant’s cost to engine thrust ratings that were finalized in April, Alder said.
