Boeing has reached its 2012 delivery targets for its newest jumbo jets, the 787 Dreamliner and the 747-8, with barely a week left before the deadline. According to an announcement Thursday, the company delivered seven 787s to six airlines in 25 hours, bringing its total 2012 deliveries of its newest jets to 75. The company, which was aiming to deliver about 70 to 85 of the new jets this year, had missed its jet-delivery targets for the new jets the previous four years.
