"Boeing Co. cut eight widebody jets from its production forecast for 2003 but still expects to deliver between 275 and 300 airplanes next year on higher demand for single-aisle planes in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Alan Mulally, Boeing's Commercial Airplanes' chief executive, said on Wednesday."

How does that work? No orders were cancelled. The only loss might be somehow in the economics of scale not putting out as many planes in a given timeframe with the current infrastructure. Otherwise, there is no reason why slowing production in the face of sluggish demand will effect gross revenue in any manner.
Still unclear what this PR was getting at, any follow up?

Most likely some aircraft were pushed back a year for delivery by the airlines ordering them because of temporary financial problems brought on by the general economic slowdown brought on by CNN calling a recession (9/11 might have speeded up this slowdown, but did NOT cause it).
