Despite rosy projections from Boeing and strong hints of future orders, pessimism is growing about the future of the company's 717 jet, a project considered key to the survival of commercial plane production in Long Beach. To the dismay of Boeing and local employees, the new 100-seat jetliner has not landed an order in nearly six months. And this week, the 717 was snubbed by a major customer, International Lease Finance Corp.

Boeing officials said the latest job cuts will be across the board and will be made over the next six to nine months as the company eliminates two work shifts, leaving only a single day shift to produce the airplanes.
