BUILDING MORE PLANES: Boeing is speeding production of most of its big planes, and that is boosting profits.
FLYING HIGH: The shorter-haul 737 and the long-haul 777 are the main planes responsible for the profit boost. Boeing is accelerating production of both.
RAISING GUIDANCE: Boeing Co. boosted its full-year profit expectations in part because it's expecting slightly higher profit margins in its defense business.
