CHICAGO – Boeing Co. plans to boost output of the 777 jet 66 percent by 2013, a move that will add revenue as the plane-maker prepares to announce a seventh delay to its 787 Dreamliner.

Production of the 777s will rise to 8.3 aircraft per month in the first quarter of 2013, the Chicago-based company said yesterday in a statement. In March, Boeing said the manufacturing rate would rise starting in mid-2011 to seven planes a month, from five now.
