Boeing delivered 39 commercial aircraft in January and took net new orders for 145 airplanes.

The company delivered 32 Boeing 737s single-aisle airplanes, one 767, six 777’s and no 747-8s or 787 Dreamliners.

With Boeing’s fleet of 50 Dreamliners grounded due to electrical problems, the company has suspended 787 deliveries.

Orders included 102 737s, one 777, and 42 787s. Most of the orders, 143 of them, were from American Airlines. Two orders were from customers who wished to remain anonymous.

The slow start to the year in deliveries is not a concern, said Sterne Agee aerospace analyst Peter Arment in a report.

“Customer timing drives when aircraft are ultimately delivered,” Arment wrote.
