Boeing didn’t book a single new jet order in September.
A total of 11 deliveries were logged last month — less than half the number from the same period last year — and seven of them were the 787 jet built in South Carolina and Washington state. Though below pre-pandemic levels, that’s the highest 787 delivery total since March.
The pandemic continues to have a “significant impact” on the industry, Boeing finance chief Greg Smith said in a statement about the delivery figures. Boeing is “taking actions to resize, reshape and transform (its) business to preserve liquidity,” Smith continued.
