American Airlines' recently announced order of up to 100 Boeing 787 aircraft will require a significant production increase by the plane maker, according to an analysis by ATWOnline. With 1,209 orders on the books before the American announcement, Boeing was planning to deliver 10 planes per month beginning in 2012. To keep up with the big new order, however, that may be ramped up to 14 per month -- a target the company has said it could hit without a big investment in infrastructure.
