Boeing delivers 23% fewer craft

October 04, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Boeing Co. delivered 23% fewer aircraft in the third quarter as the world's No. 2 commercial airplane maker shuttered operations for most of last month because of a strike by machinists.

Shipments reached 84 planes, Chicago-based Boeing said. The total is down from 109 built in the same period of 2007 and puts the company further behind in its plan to surpass larger commercial rival Airbus this year.
