Boeing said Monday that production of its widebody 777 in Everett has stepped back up to a rate of 7 per month.

In response to the economic downturn following the financial crisis of 2008, the jet maker announced it would cut 777 production from 7 down to 5 per month in June 2010.

However, even before that cut took effect, Boeing made plans to ramp up again following a strong aviation industry recovery in 2009.

Boeing plans to increase the rate again in early 2013 to 8.3 airplanes per month, or 100 airplanes per year. That will be an all-time high for the 777.

The 777 program received 48 new orders through April, and has a backlog of more than 280 airplanes.
