Boeing It delivered 60 new planes last month, the most since March, as the maker tries to boost production of some of its best-selling planes.

So far this year, Boeing has delivered 266 planes to customers, fewer than the 316 that rival Airbus has delivered. Both manufacturers are struggling to ramp up production fast enough to avoid delays for airline customers hungry for more planes during the air travel boom.

Boeing said on Tuesday it had 288 plane orders in June excluding cancellations and conversions, most of which came from a huge order announced by Air India earlier this year, and firmly The Paris Air Show last month. The order for 470 jets was split between Boeing and Airbus. Boeing’s June tally included nearly 40,787 Dreamliners for new Saudi airline Riyadh Air as part of a deal announced in March.

Boeing added some planes to its backlog, with the company’s net orders totaling 305 for the month. The company often removes or adds planes to its backlog for reasons including whether customers are likely to have the funds to buy them.

Boeing is due to report second-quarter results on July 26, when it will update investors on its plans to increase production of the 737 Max jet and 787 Dreamliner.
