Boeing Q2 results better than expected despite 787 problems

Boeing has reported better-than-expected results for the second quarter, despite problems with its 787 Dreamliner.

The US manufacturer made a net profit of $1.1 billion in the three months to June, up 13% on the same period last year.

The company delivered a total of 169 aircraft to airlines in the quarter.

This included 16 Dreamliners, which Boeing began delivering again in May after they were grounded in January amid safety concerns.

Boeing said it expects to deliver at least 60 of Dreamliners this year, despite the battery problems that affected the aircraft.
