With a faulty autopilot feature on Boeing’s 737 Max airplanes causing worldwide concern since March, recent headlines for the world’s largest aerospace company have been negative. But last year’s numbers had the company flying high: The aerospace giant hauled in record earnings of $10.5 billion on record revenue of $101 billion, an 8.3% increase from the year before. In fact, 2018 was the second-straight record-setting year for the Chicago company, in part thanks to the delivery of 806 commercial jets. A fourth quarter blitz led to nearly 900 net orders worth $143.7 billion. The 103-year-old company also delivered its 10,000th 737 overall and 2,000th airplane to China last year. All things considered, there’s plenty to brag about—but there’s turbulence ahead.
