This is a very interesting article for all with interest in aviation:
"...In reporting its results from the quarter, Boeing said it has pushed back into 2006 and even into 2007 the delivery of 30 jets -- 21 from September during the strike and nine more jets from the fourth quarter.
...Boeing will soon open a second 737 production line in Renton and next year could be building a record number -- more than 31 -- of those jets each month. Boeing does not disclose production rates, but sources say production of the 777 in Everett is going from four planes a month to five a month and eventually up to seven or more a month.
...Boeing has been talking with Emirates and possibly other airlines about stretching the 787 to about 290 seats. Boeing already plans a bigger version, called the 787-9, which would seat about 260 passengers. That plane would be ready for airlines in 2010, or two years after the base 787-8 enters service in mid-2008.
Despite strong interest from Emirates, a key Middle East customer, Boeing is concerned that a further stretch of the 787 would hurt sales of its 300-seat 777-200, or even kill off that model.
No doubt that the strike is giving Boeing a hard time, and that's sad when they are selling 737/787 as hot bread.
I can't wait to see whether Boeing or Airbus in the period 2008-2011 will deliver most.
No doubt that Airbus with the A350 also will be selling well, but it seems like have problems about rising production:
...Japan's top three manufacturers have so far rejected offers from Airbus of contract work on the planned A350 jets, citing their order commitments to rival The Boeing Co., Airbus Chief Executive Gustav Humbert said Wednesday.

Quoting Lumberton (Reply 6): I don't understand the point of this thread's title. I wished I had bought BA a year ago! You can pick out any company in the world on a down day and start shouting that "the sky is falling!".
Well, - take a look at the source link, - it was taken directly from the "seattlepi'" - so then it has to be the through, - or ...?

Well I wish I had bought more BA stock when I did so at US46 plus.
Yes it is down US$3 from its weekly high but that was due to a number of afctors which are not related to its commercial aircraft division.
Contraction of defence business, the markets, etc.
