Boeing gets first 737 Max order since crash; deliveries halve

Southwest pilots sue Boeing for $100 million over lost wages from 737 MAX Boeing Sued By Southwest Pilots Assn

But the lower delivery figures are the latest demonstration of the hit to the company's finances and prospects because of the MAX, which was taken out of service in mid-March following two deadly crashes that killed 346 people.

USA airplane manufacturer Boeing announced Tuesday that it had only delivered 26 planes in September, down 70% from a year earlier.

Boeing, headquartered in Chicago, has 4,930 737 MAX planes on order, but has only delivered 387 of them so far.

Separately, a $50 million (40.9 million pounds) Boeing assistance fund that announced September 23 it would pay each family $144,500 in the two deadly crashes has already paid three of the five claims submitted to date, the fund's co-administrator, Camille Biros, told Reuters on Monday.

Trying forward, Boeing and Airbus face important danger in sustaining manufacturing of their wide-body jets past 2021 as indicators develop of a glut out there for long-range plane, Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned mentioned in a report Tuesday.

Among its changes, Boeing is addressing a flaw discovered in the software architecture of the 737 MAX flight-control system that involves using and receiving input from both flight control computers rather than one. That is a significant drop from past year when 138 sales of the 737 were reported by Boeing in the third quarter, while the manufacturer moved a total of 407 planes through the first three quarters of 2018.

The company also delivered 12 dual-aisle 777s in the quarter, flat with second-quarter deliveries and up from 10 in the first quarter.

Boeing customers received 63 planes in the third quarter, eight of which were commercial variants for military customers.

Different elements might nonetheless help Dreamliner manufacturing, from the top of Airbus's A380 superjumbo jet to a possible commerce deal that restarts Boeing's gross sales in China. The 767 is the base aircraft for the KC-46A tankers Boeing is manufacturing for the U.S. Air Force. A year ago, the manufacturer delivered 190 planes and in 2017 there were 202 deliveries in the quarter.

Boeing had initially scheduled the plane to re-enter service at the end of August but disagreements over software details, centered on how the plane's dual flight-control computers are now meant to start working together, have put that date back to at least the end of November.

Boeing has told U.S. media it will defend the lawsuit. Wichita is home to Spirit AeroSystems Inc.

The airline has an all-Boeing fleet and was announced as a launch customer for the Max in 2011. For now, newly-produced MAX planes are heading into storage instead of in to the friendly skies. The stock's 12-month consensus price target is $412.33.
