Production rates are based on demand, not what Boeing wants to
concentrate on.  It's inevitable that the 777 rate is going up right
now because it's been very close to zero!  Here's what's happening
with Boeing's monthly production rates and when the new rate takes
effect:

  737	7 => 5	(4/96)
  747	2 => 3	(3Q96)
  757	4 => 3	(6/96)
  767	3.5	(unchanged)
  777	3 => 4	(1997; 30 in 1996 and 19 in 1995)

(Thanks to Robert Ashcroft for coincidently sending me the numbers
today!)
