Boeing Shares Fall As Dreamliner Deliveries Halted Again

• Zero Hedge

Another day, another "surprise" for Boeing shareholders: the aerospace giant has again halted deliveries of the wide-body 787 Dreamliner due to new FAA requests about the company's strategy to address previously disclosed production issues that emerged in early September 2020, according to WSJ

"We continue to work closely with the FAA in a transparent and timely manner," Boeing said. "There is no impact on the in-service fleet."

FAA regulators are said to demand more information about how the Chicago-based plane manufacturer would address quality control issues of components within the 787 Dreamliner fuselage which previously led to a five-month halt in deliveries. It was not immediately clear how long the pause in deliveries might last.
