Boeing ends last week with flat 787 orders

Boeing says orders for 787s were flat in the week that ended Tuesday, after gaining 8 from Saudi Arabian Airlines and losing 8 from a leasing company.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK —

Boeing says orders for 787s were flat in the week that ended Tuesday, after gaining 8 from Saudi Arabian Airlines and losing 8 from a leasing company.

The Chicago company said Monday Saudi Arabian Airlines completed a deal to take over orders for eight of the 787 aircraft from Kuwait-based leasing company Alafco.

Shares fell $1.66, or 2.5 percent, to $65.41 in afternoon trading Thursday.

On Tuesday, a 787 was on a 6-hour test flight when it made an emergency landing in Texas after the crew reported smoke in the rear of the plane. Test flights for the 787 were later scrapped.

The plane is already about three years behind schedule. Boeing had hoped to deliver the first 787 to Japan's All Nippon Airways early next year.

(This version CORRECTS an earlier version of the story that said Boeing lost 8 orders for the 787 in the week ended Nov. 9. Net orders were flat.))
