Boeing Website Problems Dec 29 - Final Order Count

Sat Dec 30, 2006 8:03 am

What is with Boeing's website today? I have been hoping for a big year-end order announcement all day, but can't even get on the website.

I assume if something isn't announced in the next 1/2 hour, the year is over for Boeing.

What are the final numbers for Boeing and Airbus?

The website says it won't be updated until January.

It gives me a "The page cannot be displayed" error. It is the only website with this problem.

In past years, Boeing have closed deals on the last weekend of the year.

Probably the begining of year-end maintenance.

I just got in on their site - no problem. But one is bound to be disappointed if he expects to see a big change on the orders page! Tough, down-the-wire haggling, probably? They might just issue a press release about last-minute firmed orders and update the spreadsheet on Tuesday, as noted in Reply 2.

I had lost connection with server messages all day, then minutes later, it would load, then it would not load minutes later.

I was just trying to research some historical data.

Why is that??? Is there some kind of Time Rift in Seattle or Chicago that's going to make the year end sooner???

Remember that Boeing is on holiday for the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. The normal activities and updates won't resume until after Jan. 1st.

So what your saying is that a major industry just shuts down for a whole week and then everyone just comes in on Jan 2nd and flips the lights back on and pumps out planes.

I can state as a solid fact that my part of the industry doesn't even blink when Holidays come around.

I'm sure that Boeing hands over a bonus to the sales teams that closed a $5,600,000,000.00 dollar sale on this week.

The 25th and the 1st are probably quiet days in the sales departments, however, I know that the sales teams have been working this weekend. I don't expect 1014 to be the final number.

Boeing has "closed down" for a week during the holidays for years. The unions for the most part, traded in holidays like, Columbus Day, Presidents Day, etc., and work those days in exchange for a paid week off during the holidays.

I can say, some R&D departments are still open. My company sells parts to Boeing, and even though we are closed for the holidays also, I stopped in on Wednesday to check on things. The phone rang, and it was a Boeing engineer, asking if he could send someone over to pick up some parts.

So not ALL the lights are off at Boeing, but most are.  Smile

I can tell you for sure that even though the Boeing plant is "closed" many people still come to work for the triple-time. They are still building for sure... EOY vacation is just like a long weekend, technically they aren't building planes, but people are there building planes for even MORE money than the weekday.

The up keep of the web site is a more mundane task. It's not a job that the salesmen are expected to do. You'll need to wait until next week when the clerical staff returns.
