More trouble for already struggling Boeing

Coronavirus

SEATTLE, Wash. (WSYR-TV) — Already reeling from the grounding of its 737-MAX aircraft after two crashes, the drastic drop in business for airlines is adding to Boeing’s troubles.

Last month — customers cancelled orders from the aircraft maker for 150 jets.

All cancelations were of orders for the troubled 737-MAX, which has been grounded for more than a year due to various issues with their safety systems and two fatal crashes.

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun said the company is offering buyouts and enhanced retirement packages to employees — in an attempt to limit involuntary layoffs.
