Boeing Business Jet officials in Seattle were uncertain at press time how the BBJ program would be affected by the planned layoffs of between 20,000 and 30,000 Boeing employees by the end of next year. The decision comes amid an actual and expected drop in orders for Boeing airliners as a result of last month’s terrorist attacks. Deliveries of airliners this year, which Boeing had expected to be 538 aircraft, could be as low as 500. For next year, deliveries are estimated to be in the low 400s, compared with the 510 to 520 previously forecast. Delivery expectations for the BBJ were not immediately available.
