The aviation and armaments group was also in the red in the fourth quarter. CEO Dave Calhoun still rated 2022 as an important year of recovery. The manufacturer from the USA has been in a serious crisis since 2019. After the deadly crash of two medium-haul 737 Max jets, the model was not allowed to take off worldwide for a long time. Then the corona pandemic put the entire aviation industry in trouble.
In addition, Boeing had to stop deliveries of its long-haul 787 “Dreamliner” jet due to production defects and postpone its schedule for the refurbished 777X wide-body jet by years. Last year, problems in the armaments division also resulted in further burdens running into billions.
