(Reuters) – Boeing Co <BA.N> said on Friday it delivered 183 jetliners in the second quarter, down from 199 a year earlier.

The company delivered 123 of its single-aisle 737s in the latest quarter, compared with 127 in the same period a year ago.

Deliveries of its 787 Dreamliners fell to 33 in the three months ended June, from 38.

The world’s biggest planemaker is transitioning to a newer version of its most popular aircraft, the 737.

The company delivered the first 737 MAX, the latest version of the single-aisle jet, to Malaysia-based Malindo Air in May.

Boeing also said on Friday it booked total orders of 212 aircraft in the second quarter.
