Boeing in Crisis Orders and Deliveries Plummet Amidst Accidents

TapTechNews July 10th news, according to CCTV News reports, data released by Boeing shows that in the first half of this year, Boeing's total orders reached 156, a 70% decrease compared to the same period last year.

Since the beginning of this year, Boeing has experienced continuous aircraft accidents, leading it into a serious crisis. As TapTechNews previously reported, on July 9th, a United Airlines Boeing 757 with a nearly 30-year-old aircraft age had a tire fall off during takeoff, which is the second takeoff tire fall-off situation encountered by the company in half a year. Boeing was also exposed to have reached a plea agreement with the US Department of Justice, having defrauded the Federal Aviation Administration in two air crashes.

A series of events have exposed the quality and safety loopholes of Boeing aircraft, resulting in the departure of its chairman, chief executive officer and head of the commercial department, and making Boeing subject to criticism from US regulatory agencies, the aviation industry and public opinion.

Data shows that in June, Boeing sold a total of 14 aircraft, a 95% reduction compared to the 304 sales in June last year, and only 3 of the 14 aircraft are 737MAX civil airliners, and one of the airliners sold to Alaska Airlines in the US is used to replace the faulty aircraft in the door plug fall-off accident that occurred in January this year.

Boeing delivered a total of 44 aircraft in June, a 27% decrease year-on-year, but it is still the month with the most deliveries for the company this year. Boeing has delivered a total of 175 aircraft so far this year, far behind its European competitor Airbus, which delivered 323 aircraft in the first half of the year.
